Don't Miss the Discount for EXHIBITORLIVE 2017
This year's conference, March 12-16 in Las Vegas, will feature 169 educational sessions and workshops, covering everything you need to solve your most difficult marketing challenges.

Register by February 7th and you will save $200 on any multi-session pass. Learn more at www.ExhibitorLive.com.

EXHIBITORLIVE Discount

This year we are celebrating 25 years of Certified Trade Show Marketers! Hopefully many of you graduates can join us on March 12th at the CTSM Graduate Dinner and Awards Event to recognize new graduates and help us celebrate. Stay on for the week and take some of the new sessions to keep current and work on your certification upgrades.

If you are already registered for EXHIBITORLIVE, don't forget to pack a new or gently used children's book (or a few of them) for Spread The Word Nevada (formerly called Kids 2 Kids). This charitable endeavor is doing a great job getting books into the hands of kids who have none because they can't afford them. The collection box for books will be near the show office, and monetary donations can be made in the show office. Let's help them out!

Get On Track to Complete Your CTSM Portfolio
Three more Portfolio Power-Working Weekends are scheduled this year to offer focused time away from distractions. Each weekend includes 12 hours of intensive workshop time with advisors on hand for immediate feedback.
  • April 21-22 in Atlanta, GA
  • June 10-11 in Minneapolis, MN
  • August 12-13 in Milwaukee, WI
Register here: www.ctsm.com/portfolioPowerWorkingWeekend-s.asp

Portfolio Power-Working Weekends Work Do PPWW's Really Work? Lillian from Chicago and Krista from Buffalo attended the recent Portfolio Power-Working Weekend in Tampa this month, accomplishing much. Lillian will have five sections completed and plans to submit in February. Krista's show is coming up in April. She completed as much as she could pre-show and has notes of what to add in the remaining sections when her show is over. We are confident they will both achieve CTSM certification soon!
