The O2CM Team

O2CM is a software package designed and built to aid in the running of ballroom "DanceSport" events

Without the help of many independant contractors, there would not be enough support for all the events that use O2CM. Below you will find a listing of our team, where they are generally located and how to get in touch with them. Find one that works best for your event.

Standard rates for the technicians listed below are $525/day plus travel expenses. Feel free to contact one of them to help support your event onsite with Computer systems and Scrutineering Services.

Not only are they experienced in running O2CM, but they have been to enough events to be an outstanding ally in keeping things running smoothly.
