SAAC Records, Second Locations and New Lapel Pins
SAAC Long Beach Show Reports Record Pre-Registration
The SAAC Show, August 6-7, 2008, in Long Beach, Calif., reported a record number of distributor pre-registration—many attributed to response to the shows offer of a free $50 gas card given to distributors attending the show for both days. The SAAC Board of Directors realize high gas prices are affecting distributors, and want to help them out by subsidizing their fuel bill for the ride to Long Beach.
This year, The SAAC Show introduces an incentive pavilion on the show floor, where a group of leading incentive suppliers will teach distributors how to sell customer loyalty, safety, sales and recognition programs.
Since moving to the Long Beach Convention Center in 2000, The SAAC Show has helped suppliers and distributors prepare for the largest sales quarter of the year. Many clients are also initiating incentive programs and corporate gifts at this time or they are making plans for the upcoming year. This has allowed The SAAC Show to provide the valuable opportunity to have business partners connect and explore ways to do more business.
