Travel Show October 21, 2009

Hi All,

I thought I would try posting this information and see if it reached some travel industry agents not on our radar.  If you do read this and decide to attend, let me know when you see me that night.  All travel industry folks are welcome.  Read the letter for details.

Hello Travel Industry Colleagues:

This year I have been asked to chair the Midwest ASTA Trade Show event, being held at the Wyndham O’Hare on Wednesday, October 21st, beginning at 5:00pm sharp!!  Be among the first travel agents in the region to get the full scoop on what travel suppliers have in store for 2010. A few new elements are being introduced this year which are sure to be very popular. First, there will be a mini trade show, beginning at 5:00pm!  You will be provided with a map of all the vendors’ locations and a passport to get a label from every vendor you speak to.  If you speak to 2/3 of the vendors, you will be entered into the drawing to win a $500.00 gift card.  If you visit ALL the vendors, you will be provided a voucher for your next ASTA dinner meeting for free, either in November or December.  During a multi-course sit-down dinner, suppliers will make brief presentations in a roundtable format allowing for a more focused educational opportunity in which agents will gain additional knowledge and become better prepared for a new sales year. During the main course, there is a program featuring six suppliers followed by special door prizes to wrap-up the evening.

Please consider this attachment as a personal invitation from me inviting you to attend this trade show hosted by Midwest ASTA, designed to be an educational not membership recruitment event.  We will look forward to having you join us that evening!  Please pass the information along to any of your other travel agency colleagues!  I hope you are one of the winners of our fine prizes!  We encourage all non-member travel agents to come to the trade show where you can pick up the latest ASTA information along with that of our valued suppliers. Thanks for considering this invitation.

See you on Wednesday, October 21st!

Warm regards,
