Ruby Sky Event Planning Inc. makes it easy
for corporations to get it right!

Online event-management system takes the hassle out of
conferences – for both organizers and guests.


BARRIE, ONTARIO, CANADA – June 15, 2012 – Corporations requiring event registration, are now able to tap into a secure and user-friendly online service that captures all required data – including special requirements – without overflowing inboxes or ever-changing spreadsheets.

Barrie-based Ruby Sky Event Planning Inc. has chosen Cvent, the world’s largest software provider of cloud-based event-management solutions, as its online platform to increase attendance and decrease costs for events. Cvent’s software streamlines and simplifies event planning and management allowing organizers to focus their time on strategic decisions rather than repetitive tasks.

“We implemented this web-based tool for our own use and then saw the opportunity to share it with other corporate organizers who have similar needs,” said Julie Peden, Ruby Sky’s Founder and Chief Operating Officer. “We are proud to introduce R-Sky, a tailored version of Cvent’s event registration solution which can be customized to match individual branding guidelines while providing attendees a hassle-free way to sign-up. The event registration websites are even mobile-friendly for added convenience.”

Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2012, Ruby Sky is a full-service event-management company specializing in the management of meetings, conferences, special events and travel incentives throughout Canada, the USA and the Caribbean.

The new Privacy Act-savvy software not only captures the necessary information to confirm workshop choices, create accommodation lists with roommate selections, and schedule flights according to individual preferences; it does so with customized invitations and websites that mirror corporate colours and logos while highlighting event themes. R-Sky also has multiple registration paths (available in English and French) so each registrant sees only pertinent questions and fee options – and then enjoys a secure environment for payment processing.

Because the program was set up by industry specialists at Cvent, R-Sky provides coordinators with comprehensive flexibility to manage and track all aspects of their events with access to real-time reports. They can also use the program to:

  • promote sharing and increase their event’s exposure by prompting users who have completed the registration process to share the event with their social networks
  • distribute surveys and track results to gauge attendee expectations and satisfaction and
  • automatically send out event reminders, special update notices and changes to schedules


Once the event actually begins, Cvent’s program also facilitates onsite registration and generates name badges. Afterward, it produces certificates for continuing education credits, which is especially important for those with designations to maintain.

R-Sky takes human error out of the equation and allows event organizers to manage a great deal of data efficiently and effectively,” adds Peden, who leverages Cvent’s capabilities to further her own company’s mission. “In general, it helps us maintain the level of excellence our clients have come to depend on over the last decade.”
