We had a great time at 2012 Celebrate! Convention and Trade Show June 28-July1 in Las Vegas, NV. We stayed at a comfortable and spacious hotel, Tuscany Suites and Casino on Flamingo Rd. We met so many talented people that are part of the gifting industry. I had an opportunity to lead two informational classes on the importance of developing a professional website and offered strategies for marketing using the many social media directories offering free advertising options. In addition to the information classes, we also exhibited for two (2) days.
I learned a lot from all the attendees that I had the pleasure of meeting and I hope that I was able to provide valuable information to help attendees grow their businesses and avoid some of the pitfalls of template-based web services and ways to protect domain names from phishing scams and web services that can make it difficult and sometimes impossible to retrieve a domain name.
We look forward to working with any attendees that decide to employ our services to grow their businesses. We congratulate three (3) attendees for winning 500 Free Business Cards:
INSTANT WINNER: Amazing Gift Baskets and more, Wesley Chapel, FL
Tradeshow Drawing: Essence Gift Baskets, Las Vegas, NV
Tradeshow Drawing: Carters Balloons & Candy Creations, Victorville, CA
