AMS Fest: Social Distance Edition
Qualifies for 5 CAE Credits
Association TRENDS is excited to bring you VIRTUALLY elbow-to-elbow, or should we say “screen-to-screen”, with other association executives, consultants, industry partners and AMS vendors that all want to engage in discussions around nothing but AMS (Association Management System).
We’ll have 20+ AMS companies ready to demo their platform, consultants to help guide you during your experience to ensure you’re meeting with companies that best fit your organization’s needs, and industry partners to showcase their newest innovative technologies to integrate within your system.
Not sure what AMS is or if your organization should consider one? Check out our blog post here.
THIS IS NOT YOUR AVERAGE VIRTUAL EVENT– This event will be held in a virtual campus (picture above!) in which you’ll be able to walk around AMS Fest using your avatar! That’s right- you’ll get to design an avatar that looks just like you! No web camera needed- only a microphone so that you can network, mingle and ask your questions during demos.
BACK THIS FALL– Looking for a new AMS can be a daunting experience especially if you’re the only one attending virtually from your association. This fall we’re pleased to continue cohorts! A few weeks before AMS Fest begins, you’ll be assigned (if you’d like to be included) into a group cohort of similar association executives. You’ll have a consultant as your team lead and an online meeting space where you can meet with your cohort before, during and after the event to trade notes, ask questions, and feel better prepared for your time at AMS Fest.
ALSO BACK THIS FALL– We’ve added a third day to AMS Fest where you’ll have the chance to test-drive the latest technologies brought to you by our industry partners. Whether it’s an event app, learning management system, online community, data analytics system, bustiness intelligence platforms, or marketing technology, you’ll get to preview tools to better help your association perform, grow and increase non-dues revenue.
BACK THIS FALL BY POPULAR DEMAND– Not sure where to start in your AMS shopping experience? Kick off AMSFest with a virtual bootcamp-style workshop that will set a course for your project and organization’s success.
You’ll leave feeling ready to tackle the next 2.5 days at AMS Fest with a better understanding of how the AMS projects work from selection & implementation to adoption.

“Very valuable to to get an overall view of AMS provider philosophy and positioning, as well as deep dive in one-on-one conversations. The engaging format fosters interactions. In the two days of the AMS Fest, I was able to establish a short-list of “best-fit” providers, identify areas needing investigation, and connect with leaders of these organizations. Well done.”- Kevin Baliozian, Medical Library Association
“AMS Fest was a great experience! I really got the insight and access that I was hoping for. Fantastic speakers. A must for every association in order to keep up with the advances in AMS systems.”– Jennifer Fontanella, International Studies Association
“AMS Fest is awesome and totally worth it, the quality of attendees and the sessions was very high, and the atmosphere and venue was great! We will be sponsoring and attending all foreseeable future AMS Fests!”– Rob Banwar, NimbleAMS
“AMS Fest offers a great opportunity to learn from experts and peers about how to successfully select, implement, and maintain an AMS. No other event provides such a wealth of AMS-specific information.”- Jim Friedman, ISCGI
