I was calmly working at my desk, when suddenly our Senior Trade Show Coordinator and Master of Attendee Registration Nicole Harless came storming into my office and in a loud and excited voice exclaimed, “It’s started. It’s started. We are already receiving attendee preregistration forms and we have not even started our PRI Trade Show preregistration campaign!”

Nicole’s excitement stems from the fact that we have already launched our extensive print and web-based advertising program both domestically and internationally. I guess I can confidently say that “advertising pays” as we are getting a great response.
