"The professionalism of the OCI team makes conferences run so smoothly [...]"

“OCI routinely negotiates unbelievable deals for our conferences, saving us thousands and thousands of dollars. But as far as I am concerned, the contribution OCI makes to conference planning goes well beyond 'saving money'. The professionalism of the OCI team makes conferences run so smoothly that the organizers and attendees can focus on the programmatic content of the conference.”
