Nineteen Events is a UK-based exhibition organiser with two well-established specialist shows in the security sector and the plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic industries.
The CCR (Clinical Cosmetic & Reconstructive) Expo is the UK’s largest medical aesthetics exhibition attracting cosmetic surgeons, doctors, nurses, dentists and other health professionals. Attendance at the event, including its extensive seminar programme is free of charge. For the first time in 2015 the show hosted the 31st Annual Scientific Meeting of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) which was a major coup and a very important addition to the show.
The addition of the BAAPS conference to CCR meant that, as well as the need for a registration system for CCR visitors, the organisers required an automated system that would be able to:
- Recognize and allocate free conference passes to verified BAAPS full members
- Entitle BAAPS trainees to a discounted conference fee
- Charge non-BAAPS members.
Our solution was simple but very effective and time-saving. We created one registration system that held details of all individual BAAPS members and their status (full member or trainee). This allowed us to verify them at the time of registration and automatically apply their free or discounted delegate fee. In addition, if the system did not recognize a registrant as a BAAPS member, a message popped up to that effect, asking them to select another registration option.
