This new trade association is intended to provide a much-needed collective voice and a community for global investigative sites, which are anxious for a place at the table as the clinical trials industry works to improve operational efficiency.
The Site Solutions Summit Resource Guide Network, hosted on a Webvent Adaptive Media Network, provides the industry’s most dynamic supplier to audience marketplace and has been renamed to SCRS Resource Guide Network. Whether you are a Site, Sponsor, Contract Research Organization (CRO), or other clinical research business, you can continue to find the services you need to succeed there, right now.
The Society for Clinical Research Sites was founded in 2012 in response to the growing need for a trade organization to represent the voice of research sites within the clinical research enterprise. Christine Pierre, the founder of the Site Solutions Summit, was motivated, along with other research professionals, to provide sites with resources, mentorship, and new ideas through a membership organization dedicated to providing the sites both a voice and community.
Voorburg, The Netherlands, October 1, 2012
NOB – Dutch Education Worldwide launches a webinar series targeting administrative boards and educational staff of Dutch schools abroad. Built upon a Webvent standard community site, NOB sponsors free educational webinars to increase the quality of Dutch education abroad, and to exchange, collaborate, and learn from each other by sharing best practices between schools.
NOB invites NTC (“Dutch Language & Culture”) schools from all over the world to attend these webinars. NOB typically runs each webinar twice, at different times, to meet the schedules of its global audience. Anyone interested in hosting a webinar, or who has a suggestion for a topic, should contact Ingeborg Van Rooij.
Thousands of Dutch children spend part of their childhood abroad. When they return to the Netherlands, they (re-)enter the Dutch education system at anywhere from primary school to university level. The Foundation for Dutch Education Worldwide (Stichting Nederlands Onderwijs in het Buitenland, or NOB) is a non-profit organization that has been facilitating their smooth transition into the Dutch education system since 1980. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science has commissioned NOB to promote and support high standards of Dutch education for Dutch-speaking children around the world.

ASTD (American Society for Training & Development) is the world's largest association dedicated to workplace learning and development professionals.
Webvent produces over 80 webcasts a year for ASTD. Roughly half of these have over 200 attendees, with occasional audiences of up to 1000 people – all interested in expanding their knowledge of emerging learning technologies, making business decisions based on best practices, pursuing the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance (CPLP) credential, or simply expanding their professional network in learning and development.
“Producing webcasts for multiple departments or communities of practice can be challenging. Many people are involved in managing the relationship with the presenters, managing the events calendar, scheduling / hosting / moderating the webcasts, finding the right sponsors, etc. Webvent uniquely offers ASTD a central application from which they can manage these processes as a team”, says Rick Borry, President of Webvent, Inc.
“To ASTD the real value is not just that we don’t have to worry about producing these webcasts, it also drives traffic to our Buyers Guide and our Store, which has become much more valuable for our sponsors and audiences”, says Brandon Finlen, Director of Marketing ASTD.
ASTD proves that many topics currently delivered as white papers, reports, or books become much more interesting when strengthened by a webcast delivered by the writer. The huge number of attendees is clear evidence of that. Visit webcasts.astd.org to see the ASTD site on Webvent.

Strategic partnership to include co-marketing of products and services
Hunt Valley, MD, August 9, 2012–
Network Media Partners, Inc and Webvent, Inc today announced a strategic partnership agreement for joint marketing and delivery of products and services to member-based associations, including existing customers of Network Media.
“Webvent’s Adaptive Media Network is an innovative, no-risk software and sales service that provides supplier-to-member media marketplaces for associations. It is an intuitive, well designed product, and an excellent value-add for our customers,” says Chip Boyce, President of Network Media. “One huge benefit from a sales perspective is that the sales team already working with prospects, advertisers, exhibitors and sponsors is able to sell this product vs. outsourcing the sale to a 3rd party.”
Nick Kuppers, Webvent Co-founder, adds, “Network Media’s customer base and reputation are very impressive, with the likes of Association Forum of Chicagoland and American Industrial Hygiene Association, to name a few. Our partnership with Network Media began in 2011 through a mutual customer (American Society for Training & Development), and we now extend it formally to offer the best of software and digital media sales and service to all kinds of professional and trade associations.” The first customers have already signed up, and these new supplier-to-audience marketplaces will be announced when they launch in December.
