Testimonials

Since the beginning of our partnership in 2009, the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics has been extremely pleased with the commitment and professionalism Ruggles uses to market our annual meetings. Attendance at our meetings has grown yearly partly due to their detailed, timely, and effective marketing strategies. Their targeted campaigns directed to our various member demographics have been very successful as shown by increased meeting attendance and engagement with exhibitors. Most recently, Ruggles facilitated a video and webinar session for our Ambassador Program that produced digital media that will assist us with member recruitment and retention with the younger demographic.

Ruggles is constantly working on offering great benefits for the CCAS members. They manage all aspects of the Society operations and have played an essential part in our membership growth and development. From membership recruitment, retention and engagement to financial management, Ruggles empowers all members to create meaningful change and contribution to our Society.

Every year, since our Society’s conception, Ruggles has worked diligently to provide our members with the CCAS Annual Meeting. This is the hallmark event for our Society every year and highlights the attention to detail and membership centered mentality of Ruggles. The organization, infrastructure, marketing and teamwork that goes behind putting these meetings together is outstanding and one of the main reasons for our growing attendance year after year.

To our Board of Directors, Ruggles delivers professional management services that permit our Board members the time and energy to focus on future projects and actionable goals. They are partners in providing strategic direction and guidance to our leadership, driving growth and success. It’s been a true pleasure working with Ruggles for the past years.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with your wonderful team over a number of years. In every case, I’ve found that from the initial RFP to contract negotiation and execution of the event, your team has been professional, well versed in the program and a delight to work with. The positive culture you’ve built shines through with each manager and the client they represent. I always look forward to working with your team.

The Virginia Society of Anesthesiologists has maintained a long and successful relationship with Ruggles Service Corporation that is almost 50 years old. The continued success of the VSA is due in large part to the outstanding management provided by the Ruggles team, led by the Hinckley family over the past five decades. I’ve had the personal privilege and honor of working with the Ruggles founder, John Hinckley, upon whom the tradition of personal, professional and high-quality service is based. The team and staff at Ruggles are top notch and keep our organization running smoothly. Our management team takes a personal interest in our society, to make sure our members’ needs are met. We could not be more satisfied with the association management services provided by Ruggles.

The Society for Pediatric Anesthesia has partnered with Ruggles for more than 30 years. Over those many years they have been an integral part of the incredible success of the organization. As the SPA has grown from a few hundred to a few thousand members Stewart and the rest of the Ruggles team have guided and advised us every step of the way. The Ruggles team are not only our management company, they are friends and colleagues who share our commitment to membership and our passion for children.

The Louisiana Orthopaedic Association Annual Meeting is a well-organized and fun conference to participant in! We have attended LOA for many years and Dana and Julie make registration a breeze. All registration is done online and they are easily accessible for any questions or needs before the conference as well as someone being present on site throughout the entire conference. Thank you for all you do for us as exhibitors and the physicians attending. Our expectations are always exceeded!

Ruggles Service Corporation is an exemplary Medical Association Management Company. Over the course of the past five years I’ve attended over a dozen meetings coordinated by their exceptional staff. Planning and attending meetings coordinated through the Ruggles team is remarkably easy and problem free. The entire process, from registration to onsite activities, runs smoothly and efficiently. Staff are delightful to work with, they are incredibly friendly and helpful. The event registration process is straightforward, event logistic details are relayed in a consistent, thorough, and timely manner. Onsite logistics are meticulous, move-in and move-out details are flawlessly orchestrated. Their meetings are always well attended, making the whole endeavor very worthwhile. Finally, exhibitors and attendees can also always count on plentiful and delicious meals and receptions.

I have been an exhibit planner on the American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics meetings for over 5 years now. As a planner, the AOAO meetings are among my favorite shows to manage. Dana and Julie are terrific and make planning this event pleasurable. It is easy to submit your application (you can pay online), they provide all the necessary details in a timely manner, they are extremely receptive and responsive if you have any questions and the onsite attention to detail is great. The exhibit hours are concise yet appropriate, and I have noticed that the events have grown over the years. The attendees are genuinely interested in product knowledge. They are engaging and you walk away from the meeting knowing it was worth your time, dollars spent and the effort.
