Problem: Northstar Travel Media is faced with the challenge of successfully matching two different types of attendee categories based on their region, specialties, and several other factors.
Solution: etouches has given Northstar Travel Media a new way of doing business. Privately and securely, eSocial automates the process of connecting vendors and attendees of similar interests at host-buyer events and other meetings.
Northstar’s Meetings Group produces around 14 face-to-face events annually, bringing over 1,000 highly-qualified meeting professionals and industry suppliers together at hosted-buyer symposiums. The programs balance educational curriculum with exciting networking events in some of the most popular meeting destinations around the world. By uniting meeting planners with meeting industry vendors, Northstar’s events play a key role in connecting buyers and sellers in the retail travel marketplace.
Angela Cox, Northstar’s Executive Meeting Planner, organizes over a dozen large scale conferences and trade shows each year with a complex set of seminars. She also plans strategic networking sessions between meeting planners and meeting industry vendors. With registrations from both flooding in for each event, Angela has to successfully match up the two different types of attendees based on their region, specialties, and several other categories. Because she wants her clients to find exactly what they are looking for at Northstar’s conferences, facilitating networking is vitally important.
“We chose etouches because of the capabilities of eSocial. The majority of our events are appointment-based and we use a mutual matching system rather than an accept-and-deny basis. The driving factor that made our events simpler was the ability to re-key data. We saved about 5 hours per event.”

etouches has given Northstar Travel Media a new way of doing business. Privately and securely, eSocial automates the process of connecting vendors and attendees of similar interests at host-buyer events and other meetings. Angela can customize the matchmaking system for each event by selecting criteria for attendees and vendors and then choose the fields that she wants the registrants to view. Vendors can then weigh the selected attendees based upon who they are most interested in meeting. Not only is this a big time-saver, but it optimizes appointments. Additional summary reporting provides valuable insights into attendees’ behavior and helps Angela improve upcoming events.
