CRG Events (http://www.crgevents.com), a Seattle-based event management firm, today announced they have been awarded the coveted Microsoft Vendor Program (MSVP) Excellence Award in the category of service. According to Microsoft, the "Service" category is one of Microsoft's most popular honors within the MSVP awards program. Presented on an annual basis, winners of the 2008 MSVP Excellence Awards were chosen from 17,200 Microsoft vendors across the United States.
Selected by a panel of Microsoft executives, recipients of the MSVP Excellence Awards are recognized for the exceptional service they provide to the company. To be considered for this award, vendors must first be nominated by a Microsoft employee based on the characteristics of value, quality, flexibility, innovation, security and privacy.
"We are honored to receive the MSVP Excellence Award for the quality and consistency of registration services our team provides," said Leasa Mayer, president, CRG Events. "We thoroughly enjoy working with the Microsoft team and look forward to our continued work and collaboration with them to create effective and exceptional events."
CRG Events developed a completely new registration process, database, online event registration website and customer service plan that supported event participants during Micrsoft's Tech•Ed North America event, which helped to secure the award. In 2008, for Microsoft alone, CRG has successfully registered over 200,000 attendees.
