CadmiumCD overview

What is CadmiumCD?

CadmiumCD built the myCadmium event management software platform for meeting planners, exhibition organizers, education directors, and attendees who plan, manage, and attend educational conferences with a B2B trade show component.

The myCadmium dashboard is a centralized location where users can launch all their content-related event software. From submissions and review software, to speaker/exhibitor management tools, and apps and websites for attendee engagement, CadmiumCD strives to cover the full event cycle. Integration with registration, housing, A/V, CMS, and AMS platforms also aims to bridge the gap between products not directly provided.

For every project, CadmiumCD assigns a project manager to assist teams in successfully creating and launching myCadmium products for events. With a monthly users group, an annual conference, and an online training portal, CadmiumCD aims to provide additional support for users.

Does what it's supposed to do very well, but with some presentation flaws. Still a great product.

Great to have all our speaker and conference session info in one place. Doesn't require much work aside from the initial set-up.

Pros
Cadmium is an excellent tool for harvesting speaker info. The staff also responds quickly when client service is needed. I love the flexibility and ease of customizing Cadmium's tools. I also love the search bar in the settings page . I haven't seen that anywhere else and it's very useful. The staff and I have already briefly discussed my requests to better the service by carrying over "speaker agreement" task achievement data from the scorecard to the harvester, making the communications module spell-check compatible, and by offering a way to download all speaker headshots. My company will continue using it for our upcoming conferences. (I am currently just using the Scorecard and Harvester tools.)

Cons
Concerning the display, the series of links and buttons for speakers in the Scorecard and Harvester look clunky and dated. It would be nice if the site looked more Apple-like, frankly. Cadmium's website coding can also be buggy, and it's something different every time from random instances of being logged out, to incomplete confirmation messages, to preview windows that won't disappear. Sometimes it feels like I have to quickly do what I need in Cadmium before the site falls apart. Scaling back to a higher level, I still don't see much purpose of the "points" system on my dashboard. Lastly, to be blunt, I hate the mascot. It looks like a watered-down Minion.

Thank you for your review Eric. We pride ourselves on delivering great customer services and a customizable product. We are so glad that you've experienced both. Your myCadmium points can be used to purchase urgent Boomerangs or custom reports. Simply click the points on your dashboard to access your point bank. Also, you absolutely have the ability to download all speaker head shots into one ZIP file. As you know, we're constantly updating and improving our system. We've taken note of your suggestions and will include them in future development considerations. Thanks again for taking the time to write this review. We look forward to continuing to serve you and your organization!

CadmiumCD has proven to be a great partner for us in planning our annual conference and regional events. They are a supportive and flexible vendor, with an intuitive product which integrates with our CMS and registration system nicely. The developers are always working on enhancements and new features, and they bring clients into the conversation to assess needs and how their product can address those needs. The toughest part of the relationship is keeping up with all of the new features! There's no shortage of development and innovation with this event management solution.

Pros
Intuitiveness

Cons
Communication with team - getting much better with boomerangs. Ways to better manage timelines and milestones

Response from CadmiumCD


Thanks for the kind words, Leslie! We are always excited to role out new features to clients and have a monthly webinar to address these, as well as an annual users conference. As much as we're working to improve our software, we're also constantly improving our processes. Thank you and the rest of the NAFSA team for being such a valued partner!

We've been using Cadmium CD's products for over 10 years. I work directly with the owner, in addition to other staff members and everyone is very quick to respond and helpful. Over the years, Cadmium has been excellent about listening to our needs and making tweaks/enhancements based on our needs. We have been very happy working with Cadmium.

Pros
Flexibility and ability to make changes on our own.

Cons
The list of reports/worksheets on the back end isn't often cleaned up and it can be hard to sift through it all to find what you are looking for.

Response from CadmiumCD


Thanks for your 10 years(!!!) of support, Rina! We're so lucky to have USGBC as a client. Your team always challenges us to develop the best solutions we possibly can. We look forward to a continued partnership with you and your team.

I manage exhibit and sponsorship sales for a small non-profit association, and before we discovered Cadmium I was juggling everything manually. The Exhibitor Harvester has been a dream! Setting up our event and submitting boomerangs were very easy to learn, and working with Jen Rice has been so pleasant. Once things picked up for our Annual Meeting it was so convenient to have a user-friendly live floor plan and payment process for interested exhibitors to use, with minimal contact with me. It allowed me more time for juggling other time sensitive and sales tasks and preparing for our event. We experienced little to no issues with the software, and our exhibitors seem satisfied. I highly recommend Cadmium's exhibitor software to interested associations or companies.

Thank you so much for the kinds words, Stacie! We're glad we could free up some time for AMSUS and help you achieve your sales goals. It's always nice to have tech-savvy clients like you!

Time savings!

Pros
Their products are all interconnected and allow us to make a single change and push out to our various mediums (app, signage, speaker portal, program, exhibits portal, etc)

Cons
The software is event specific and we have an events center in addition to the annual conference. Ideally, for our organization, it would be great to have this feature.
