We are able to offer the best in technology and staff experience, and our business levels and client satisfaction scores are validating this.

When event management company EventSphere found out just weeks prior to President Barack Obama's second term inauguration that they had been selected as the event's housing provider, they knew that such a high-profile event came with great expectations, and that there was not much time to plan and less room for error.

Fortunately, EventSphere could call on its experience in leveraging Passkey's GroupMAX online hotel booking technology to deliver flawless housing services under time constraints. Just a few months earlier, the Company used GroupMAX to deliver seamless housing management for the 2012 Democratic National Convention (DNC).

So, empowered by its event management expertise and Passkey's world-class technology, EventSphere kicked off 2013 with a major success as the official housing provider for President Barack Obama's presidential inauguration held in Washington, DC. In days, it effortlessly processed over 2,500 hotel reservations, fully booking the event's room blocks across several DC area hotels.

"Finding out we would be working on such a prestigious event was a wonderful way to end our 2012," says EventSphere's CEO and president, Todd Lambert. "We are able to offer the best in technology and staff experience, and our business levels and client satisfaction scores are validating this."

Passkey's CEO and president, Greg Pesik, also weighed in on the event. "We're proud to say that our GroupMAX technology was used to deliver a great experience to those participating in an occasion as important and respected as the President Barack Obama's inauguration. The fact that EventSphere was able to win this business due to their performance during the DNC is a testament to both their service levels and the technology we offer."
