"Getting Business Done"
One of our vendors will be working with the Association staff for this incentive. No one will know the vendor identity. During the Summit, the 5th program administrator or carrier attendee who visits this vendor's trade show table and asks the contest question, "How can your product or service help me get business done" will win a One Thousand Dollar AMEX gift card from the TMPAA. We will not announce or inform the winner until the general session on Wednesday morning.
The more vendor services you learn about, the greater your chances of walking away with One Thousand Dollars, and potentially a valuable resource for your business.
It's a win, win for everyone.
