July 31, 2018 – We're pleased to welcome ConferenceDirect® to Equine Info Exchange. When you're planning your next meeting or conference, they are your best choice for a hospitality pro and horse industry veteran. On your behalf, ConferenceDirect secures the best hotel accommodations, meeting space, conference venues, and hospitality services available – and negotiates the most favorable terms possible.

From the site selection and contract negotiation to room block management and post-event audits, every service they provide is focused on maximizing your event/meeting ROI. ConferenceDirect Associates are seasoned negotiators, understand every detail of hospitality and event-related contracts, and help protect you against potentially costly and often overlooked details.

Judy Lee-Kirchmann, ConferenceDirect Global Account Executive, has been in the hospitality industry for over 30 years. She worked with the Hyatt Hotels Corporation as Director of National Accounts, with a wide variety of clients from ESPN Productions, Mars/Masterfoods Inc, and the US Marshals Service, to associations such as Thoroughbred Racing Associations and the American Morgan Horse Association. Now, with ConferenceDirect, Judy has the ability to represent her clients with all hotel brands. Her intimate knowledge of hotel operations, coupled with her group sales and customer service background, serves her clients well.

But it is in thoroughbred racing where her heart lies. She grew up on the backside at Ak-Sar-Ben, in Omaha, NE. Her father, the late Don Lee, is in the Nebraska Racing Hall of Fame as a turf writer. Her brother, Denny Lee, is Chairman of the Nebraska State Racing Commission. She is the proud owner of a retired racehorse, Little Joe Lewis.

“I am deeply aware of not only the achievements in the racing industry, but the challenges as well. When the decision to have a conference is made, every detail affects the bottom line and ultimate success of an event. I know this industry, I respect it, and it shows in how I represent my beloved thoroughbred world to hotels. In my mind, this is the most important group a hotel will have, and I do all possible to ensure everyone at a hotel is aware of this as well. No one else will represent your group the way I will. The leverage I bring to the negotiating table with ConferenceDirect is immeasurable. We have contract clauses and concessions that only our clients receive,” says Ms. Lee-Kirchmann
