We’d like to pass on two important notices from the world of conferencing. Do remember how informative (and fun) February’s IFA convention was? Well the IFA wants everyone to know that early bird booking to attend next year’s event has opened. The 2010 IFA annual conference will be held in San Antonio from February 5- 8th. The IFA has opened early-bird booking for members to IFA members only until September 15. Early bird booking means a saving of $50 on registration fees. But if you book online today, you can save $100 on booking fees. There’s more info here. It will be the 49th annual IFA convention and is certain to be as much of a blockbuster event as this year’s conference, where Bill Clinton provided the keynote address.
In the shorter term, there’s an interesting IFA event being held in LA at the end of September. The IFA has announced plans for its Franchise Development Super Session which will be held in Los Angeles from September 30 to October 1st in the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites. This year’s Super Session title is “Selling Franchises in a Challenging Economy”. There'll be a revamped agenda and its program will aim to keep you on the path to successful franchising. Highly notable is the keynote speaker: internet and technology entrepreneur Scott Ksolosky.
A CEO of three successful start-ups and a Turnaround Expert, Scott will be sharing some of his innovative ideas on how to use to the internet and technology to generate sales. You can also expect the “unconference” format for a section of the event. It’s sure to be a n energizing session, and you can book your place today at the IFA’s website.
Knowledge is power in this economy, so inform yourself at these two events.
