The Society for Information Display Selects Par Avion to Handle Convention Housing for Display Week 2013


Los Angeles, CA, October 2, 2012Par Avion Meetings & Conventions has been awarded the convention housing contract for the Society of Information Display’s (SID) Display Week 2013 to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada, May 19-24, 2013. This event marks the 50th anniversary of Display Week, the premier event for the sales and marketing of displays and display-related products to the North American market.

“We wanted a company that would take our housing services to the next level and provide us with a better convention housing solution,” said Doug Bragdon, Sr. Business Manager for the Society for Information Display. “Par Avion was extremely proactive, an element that had been missing from our program in the past. They also had an excellent online presence and great ideas of how to increase our room block results.”

Toby Brenner, president and CEO of Par Avion, said, “We are privileged to represent the Society for Information Display and excited for the challenge of Display Week! We are looking forward to an enormously successful event and long-term relationship with SID.”

Though Display Week is still seven months away, Bragdon has already been impressed with the exceptional level of customer service that his organization is receiving. “They do things that other vendors won’t do or you have to tell them to do,” he stated. “I like the way that they have incorporated images from past events right on the housing page and how we are already receiving pick-up reports without having to ask.”

“What Par Avion does is build customer loyalty,” he continued. “Already, we expect we’ll be happy to go back to them because they treat us well.”
