Front-Runner Workshop: Feb. 13, 2014
BTA Southeast will host the first of its two district events, open to BTA members and non-members from across the country, on Feb. 14-15, 2014, at the Walt Disney World Swan in Orlando, Fla. This event will be a great setting to learn from industry leaders, gather new ideas and network with your peers.
The event will feature a keynote presentation by Mason Olds of Canon U.S.A. Inc., five additional educational sessions presented by industry leaders and a dealer panel. In addition, there will be time to visit with 30-plus exhibiting sponsors, many of which will hold drawings for great prizes during the event. Dealer attendees can also enter on-site for a chance to win one of five $100 American Express gift cards and be entered into the BTA District Event Sweepstakes.
From 4 to 9 p.m. on Feb. 15, the event will wrap up with a trip to one of the Disney theme parks of your choice: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom.
