Up next - WATERCON2013!
It seems like March of 2013 is a long time from now, but it will be here before we know it. One of the drawbacks of the aging process is that time seems to go by faster.
WATERCON 2013 is going to have a lot of the same things as this year’s event, but we’re also implementing a few changes. For instance, we will once again have a Grand Opening for the Exhibit Hall, but the Hall officially will open at 1:00 p.m. on Monday afternoon. We’re going to have two meet and greets in 2013, one on Monday afternoon and one on Tuesday, which we expect will bring in a lot of attendees to the Hall.
Also new for 2013 will be a 12:00 noon conclusion to our festivities on Wednesday. Here is the Exhibit Hall schedule for WATERCON2013.
Monday: Grand opening at 1:00 pm
1:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Tuesday 9:00 am to 6:00 pm
Wednesday 8:00 am to 12:00 noon
The Exhibit Hall is approximately half sold as I write this in late July. As most of you know, exhibit spaces are assigned by priority points, but you can register at any time regardless of your point total. Early registration can be a big benefit to you. Let me explain why. When you register you are put in the queue for your point total and you will receive your booth assignment prior to anyone else with your point total that registers after you. So, if you haven’t yet registered, do it now! We sell out every year so get registered and don’t get shut out!
The MAC Committee and the ISAWWA will once again sponsor a FREE webinar for exhibitors. This year’s webinar, "GET THE MOST FROM PRE-DURING-POST” is loaded with valuable information and tools you can use to maximize not only your experience in the Exhibit Hall but also your follow-up process after the show concludes.
Even those of you who have participated in trade shows for many years will gain valuable insights into how to increase your booth traffic and, most importantly, how to assure yourself of 100% lead follow-up. There will be two different sessions, one in February and one in March so everyone in your company can attend. I can guarantee that you will pick up tips and ideas you never thought about from the Voice of Trade Show ROI, Richard Erschik. Register today at www.isawwa.org.
The MAC Committee is made up of a group of folks just like you. We have members from service organizations, rep houses and water operators. If you want to know more about who we are and what we do as a committee, then tune in to the Webinar, Get to Know Your MAC Committee, on September 28th at 10:00 a.m. You can register for this free webinar on the ISAWWA website
We look forward to seeing everyone at WATERCON2013 in Springfield, March 18 – 21, 2013.
