What we do
Conventionforce provides spatial mapping and booking software to manage tradeshows, banquets, farmers markets and outdoor faires.

Who we serve
Our customers are tradeshow exhibitor managers, facility operators, outdoor and farmers market managers, banquet organizers, convention and visitor bureaus (CVBs), chambers of commerce and city agencies. If you run events with booths or seats, our system can make your life easier.

How you use the system
Our system lets you easily lay out a show, book vendors or attendees (or let them book themselves), share your show with staff, vendors and customers, and run analytical reports. It's simple (we never use the word CAD) and it ties into any existing system.

A few features
A vendor placement / mapping tool that's easy.
Email blasts to specific vendor segments.
Document upload (licenses, permits etc.) for vendors.
Online vendor payments.
Easy to use reports: Who came back, who's new, who exhibits the most...

"Thank you so much for everything. By the way, I have gotten LOTS of calls [from vendors]. They are overwhelmingly exited about how simple the process is. So kuddos to you all for this!"
Ligonier Country Market Manager

"As an event organizer for several monthly events I find ConventionForce to be an invaluable tool. The software is simple to use and robust in data. It's a dream product for anyone planning events of all sizes."

"Convention Force has been used for the Annual Luncheon for the past two years now. I just can't imagine assigning table seating without it! The team is super easy to work with, understands the needs and demands of planning a large scale luncheon event. It's great that it can be used online and via iPad, the two mechanisms speak to each other so updates can be made with ease. I also am amazed at how it can be so versatile - you can assign seats, make diagrams and lists exportable, printable, and used for any aspect of the event such as printing or projecting a large diagram on screen or in a program map. I'm looking forward to using the app again this coming year!"

"I love seeing the reports. We now use the map for almost all of our concierge requests, so I'm sure that has bumped the numbers quite a bit, but it really shows where people are interested in visiting. I'll share at our next Board meeting."

"The Lodi Chamber of Commerce has been a client of Convention Force for several years. Our semi-annual Street Faire has over 500 vendors in each show and by using this software has saved us time and money. If I ever had questions, the team has always been available and reliable in his response. I’ve requested changes to customize the process to our needs and they have been accommodating to them and in a timely manner. The Chamber uses Convention Force for other Chamber events as well. I highly recommend this software to anyone who books shows or events."
Karen Cannon
Lodi Chamber of Commerce

"Convention Force is a valuable tool in all aspects of Show Operations. From communicating sales figures and exhibitor designations to being up to date with floor plan changes to the electricians and decorator. It's incredibly useful in all these situations and also conveys immediately to the public any updates and changes in exhibitor locations. Convention Force is by far the most useful tool in my arsenal as a show salesperson and show manager. Thanks for developing such a powerful program."

"I have to take a moment to thank you for the outstanding job you have done with creating the event maps for my company in Convention Force. They are relatively easy to use, and the technical support you provide is simply outstanding and unparalleled to any other company I have ever had experience with. The industry specific customization you have done to really fit our needs well is just exceptional, and more than I ever thought we would be able to have. Your efforts have brought my company to a new level of professionalism, and the ease of use for processing map and vendor data and editing on the go has made a world of difference for us. I am excited to continue working with you and feel so lucky to have you on our team. We really appreciate everything you have done for us. Your level of excellence is just outstanding."
