My Suggestions for this Seminar: 1) Arrive early to find parking and be ready to meet up at 5:45pm so I know how many tables to try to reserve for us to sit together. 2) Have a light snack before you arrive since we meet with vendors first before dinner. 3) Bring a wheeled backpack if you plan on bringing home heavy tour books from the vendors. 4) Wear comfortable walking shoes; bring a sweater or jacket. 5) Bring plenty of business cards for the vendors and travel agents you'll meet. 6) Wear your name tag if you have one. 7) Bring something to write with and a notepad. It is a lot of information you'll receive. 8) It is a lot of people so be prepared for that as well especially if you have mobility needs.
