case study

WMS Logo

WM Symposia has been partnering with X-CD Technologies to provide our conference platform database for more than 20 years years. They’ve provided us with a customized solution that manages our conference from start to finish. From abstract management, attendee management, exhibitor management and conference management.. They’ve been customizing a solution that delivers our conference year after year. We’ve been fortunate to have X-CD and hope the relationship continues in the future. 


  Susan Walter, Managing Director WM Symposia 


  • WM Symposia had outsourced development of a customized event management database to a web developer and maintaining and customizing the solution had become costly, risky, and inefficient 


  • X-CD began providing online abstract and paper management software for WM in 2004
  • X-CD worked with WM Symposia to help customize a solution over several years that worked with the conferences unique needs and complex workflows


  • After over 20 years of close partnership, WM Symposia uses nearly all of X-CD’s conference software and solutions to deliver the worlds largest conference on radioactive waste management
