2015 Conference Competitions – WIN AN iPAD MINI
To increase networking and sharing of great ideas we want to create a dedicated ‘Market Place’ at this years conference.
We are inviting you to ‘sell your wears!’ and have 10 table tops for the 10 best entries.
We are not asking you to bring your prize carrots or lettuce!, what we want are your professional ‘gems’ that have worked well for you/your service. It could be a service report, a funding bid proposal, a marketing promotion that worked or a new element of your business/service that has been successful. Set up your stall and be prepared to chat to the Conference delegates about your work. In exchange for your sharing all selected ‘Market Stalls’ will receive a LLT ‘hoody’ top for free – and the BEST stall (as voted by the delegates) will win an iPad mini 🙂
So, send us the outline of your idea and copies of any paperwork/documents that you think you would like to have on show on your stall by the 12th Sept and we will notify you if your idea has been accepted for the Market Place.Simulation Suit Superstars competition
