Holy cow! We are less than 13 weeks until NAMB National, 89 days to be exact. Free registration went out to all of the exhibitors last week, so they should be getting them out to their customers this week. Please check the NAMBNational.com Web site for a list of exhibitors. They were all given codes to hand out to their customers for free registrations to NAMB National. These are a $495 registration that is free, supplied by them for you to attend. And right now, most airlines are running specials to Las Vegas, so rates are fairly cheap, so do not delay. Come and experience a conference that is all about you and the originator.
