September 12th – 15th 2011
Ritz Carlton – Naples Florida

Ladies and Gentlemen, we have developed our initial schedule of speakers and events for our upcoming Pawn Symposium & Conference scheduled for September 12th – 15th in Naples Florida.

I am very pleased to announce that from our select client list we have exceeded more than ½ of our allotted attendance space.

On behalf of myself, my team and the many other souls assisting us with this epic and historical event, I would like to remind all of you that may be “sitting on the fence” to get your requests on over to us ASAP if you would like to get on our list.

Due to the extreme intimate nature of our attendee feedback mechanisms, attendance has to be limited for this event.

We have tentative pricing structures for the event. Your admission fee of $3499 per attendee gets you a room at the Ritz Carlton for the 4-nights of the event, all attendance to the functions, cocktail reception, all meals excluding two nights, attendance to the dinner show and closing ceremony. Additional attendees that do not require a room admission fees will run $3299 per person.

There are room upgrades available and we are offering Golfing and Fishing expeditions outside of the days of our event. For those of you who may choose to stay longer, our room rates are at a discount and you may add nights at your leisure.

If you would like to do some golfing and or fishing, you may go directly to our reservations online page which will be online in the next week or so.
