The Warehousing Education and Research Council stands behind their conference’s programming and is offering its attendees a guarantee – if the conference does not deliver a quality educational experience, WERC will provide a refund or credit towards a future national program. Additionally, WERC is now offering special group-rates and single-day registrations. For information about WERC’s conference guarantee, conference pricing and it new group or one-day registrations fees, go to www.werc.org.
“Industry events, like WERC’s conference are a considerable investment,” said Tim Feemster with Grubb and Ellis Company and WERC’s Board President. “We want organizations to know that when they send their teams to the WERC Conference, it will pay off.” Tim goes on to say, “The WERC Conference has always focused on providing practical take-aways that the attendees can implement the week they return to their companies. Since the program is designed by subject matter experts from the industry, we’re confident we can deliver on our promise.”
As for offering special group pricing and single-day registrations, “it’s not your father’s conference,” says Connie Anderson with Aspen Logistics, Inc. and WERC’s 2010 Director of Conference. “People want more flexibility – the chance to choose and customize their conference experience. For some, that might mean attending the conference for one or two days to hear a specific speaker or attend a particular facility tour.”
To ensure that attendees maximize the networking portion of their conference experience, WERC has negotiated low hotel rates of $169 at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel. “Making new contacts and catching up with old ones continues to be a real value of face-to-face meetings,” says Connie. “The special hotel rate makes it reasonable and convenient for attendees to stay in one hotel location.”
