“The entire team at Encore was excellent to deal with, from initial contact exploring the possibilities and challenges of an online-convention, to the planning and execution of our annual convention. All conventions are complicated, with many moving parts, but CUPE BC conventions are especially complicated, especially in an election year. The Encore team dealt professionally and efficiently with all the curve balls we threw them, adapting the platform technology to ensure we were able to give our on-line delegates an experience that as much as possible replicated the elements of an in-person convention. By no means was it a simple task, and we could not be happier with the technology, the customer service, and all the members of the Encore team who performed so well during the event” – Kiran Kooner, Director of Operations
