Award recipients will be announced at the President's Dinner during ETA's Annual Meeting & Expo April 15, 2008, held at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
The Expo is a place to network with partners, clients and colleagues, as well as take in many exhibitors and gain information about new products and services.
New this year, attendees must register for the conference to make reservations at the Mandalay Bay Resort. Once registration is completed, recipients will receive a reference number that must be given to the hotel reservations desk to reserve a room.
