NEW: ExperienceGuru

ALA is focused on developing methods to improve your meeting experience. ExperienceGuru is a tool that gives you a direct line of communication to our staff while you’re in Los Angeles, in case you run into any issues but are unable to leave the meeting room or cannot easily find available staff onsite. In this way, we have the opportunity to resolve issues on the spot. Here’s how it works:

  • You will receive a text message on your cell phone before, during or after different experiences throughout the conference.
  • The message will contain a link that you can click to quickly provide your feedback.
  • Respond using a simple three-point scale: Good, Neutral or Poor. You’ll provide comments if an issue needs to be addressed.
  • ALA tracks the feedback in real time and can respond immediately as needed.

You can participate by marking the “Check here if you want to participate in ExperienceGuru” box when you register, and providing your cell phone number. Please note that standard messaging rates apply. International attendees please confirm that you have international roaming prior to participating.

Registration for ExperienceGuru will close May 2, 2016. Standard text message fees from your provider will apply.
