Bridgeport, CT – EventEvolution Management Inc. is pleased to announce that the 2016 DOCUMENT Strategy Forum will be held on May 10-12 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago, IL—returning to the venue where it all began. The DOCUMENT Strategy Forum (DSF) is the industry’s first and only Peer-Driven, Peer-Reviewed and Peer-Produced conference dedicated to the professionals charged with delivering superior customer experiences.
“We pride ourselves of not operating in a vacuum and making decisions solely based on what we think is best. Rather, it’s a collaborative approach in which our attendees and exhibitors share input on the strategic direction of the event. With that said, their input and feedback led us back to the Hyatt Regency O’Hare, Chicago,” said Joel Dunkel, President, EventEvolution Management, Inc., producers of DOCUMENT Strategy Forum. “The big draw for us was two-fold: First, the event is now centrally located, which makes it attractive for industry professionals from both coasts as well as being a strong demographic area for our market. Second, the hotel is located just ten minutes from Chicago O’Hare International Airport, which makes it very cost-effective and easy to access. It’s the best of both worlds,” continued Dunkel.
