Services - Event Services

We highly suggest utilizing the University of Maine’s Conference Services Division to help plan your entire event.¬† One call can activate arrangements for food service, housing, technology, meeting room reservations and all other conference-related services.¬† Their experienced professional staff are ready to assist with every conference need, allowing the conference chair to focus on content rather than logistical details, such as:

  • Coordination of meeting room set-ups, exhibit space, dining and lodging arrangements
  • Flexible accommodations wiht competitive conference rates for groups of 15 to 1,500
  • State of the art instructional technology, video conferencing, and audiovisual services
  • Web-based pre-registration and on-site registration services including credit card processing and customized confirmations
  • Account management and direct billing services
