Honoring Our Past
Looking to Our Future
Registration Services by An Ideal Partner LLC
In Conjunction with
Lori Amundsen Drinks established An Ideal Partner in 2001 to replace the manufacturing process often employed by other registration companies. Rather than having a team of departmentalized services, Lori wanted to be involved and accountable through all phases of the service plan. Year after year, Lori is part of the full Ideal experience for every client.
Operational support comes from a 20+ year partnership with Tom Dehn, Mike and Traci Perkovich of BADGEGuys.com (programmers extraordinaire and production workhorses). We build custom, online forms and processes to meet the unique perspectives and practices of each event.
Lori is a recipient of the President’s Award from the Trade Show Exhibitors Association and a Merit Award from the International Association for Exhibition Management.
An Ideal Partner is based in the heart of Baltimore, Maryland, within driving distance of Washington DC and three major airports. BADGEGuys has offices in Atlanta and Dallas. Together we serve events all over the world.
And in our most recent past, open session seating, plated meals and roaming cocktail receptions gave way to networking and new personal contacts. We embraced communal experiences in close proximity to one another.
My, how times have changed.

"We’ve come to rely on Lori and Tom to understand our clients’ unique needs to build out the perfect registration solution. From initial data capture, to registration flow to pre- and post-event reporting, everything we get helps us do our job better and makes our clients very happy. Lori can sit behind a skirted table for a small meeting or conduct an orchestra of thousands. The scalability and flexibility of An Ideal Partner is superb."
"Never underestimate the importance of your registration company and its leadership. From online to on site they are the ones interacting with your attendees, setting the stage for what you hope will be a great convention experience. Personable, professional and reliable, I want no one other than Lori Drinks on my registration front line. An Ideal Partner has played an integral role in the success of CinemaCon since 2011."
“An Ideal Partner is exactly that. As the registration partner to the American Pharmacists Association for over 20, stress-free years, Lori and her team expertly and professionally managed registrations, reporting, staffing, on-site coordination and exceptional customer service. When we decided to maximize the power of our in-house CMS, Lori created a roadmap for our transition - and stayed with us until we were ready to go it alone."
