  • 2012 International Pawn Symposium & Conference

    Ladies and Gentlemen in Pawnland!

    We have updated information for this year’s upcoming 2012 International Pawn Symposium & Conference scheduled for September 9th – 14th at the Historic 5 Star – Ritz Carlton Hotel in Georgetown Cayman Islands on 7-mile beach.

    Here is a link with some information on the Ritz Carlton Grand Cayman Location:

    Ritz Carlton – Cayman Islands

    We have added two more night stays for a total of 6 nights for this year’s event so that we may all take in some of the many excellent group social functions we are planning for this Historic Event and to enjoy the glamour and beauty of the Cayman Islands themselves.

    Moving forward with some of the feedback we received last year in Naples we have shortened up several of our days just a bit so that we can ALL have planned social or family functions together or individually to partake in many of the island hospitalities that are offered.

    The Cayman Islands offer WORLD CLASS activities unparalleled anywhere else in the world today. The Caymans’ have been long known as one of the top 10 diving locations on the Planet today as well as providing excellent deep sea fishing grounds and a variety of ocean and marine activities suited for just about any age or ability level.

    Here is a link with some information on Cayman Island activities:

    We are also billing this year’s event as “Family” friendly!

    Children will be welcome and we will have several of our social functions geared around good ol’ fashioned family fun. We are looking at sand-castle building competitions on the beach, sea turtle aquarium visits, dolphin swims, snorkeling, diving, swimming with the stingrays, submarine dives, fishing, golfing and more. We will have a host of options that will fit just about any of our attendees’ desires traveling from around the world to attend our event this year.

    This year’s event promises once again to be unlike any other event of its kind in the  Pawn Industry today. We will be mixing and mingling with some of the best and brightest minds this industry has produced along with some other skilled and knowledgeable folks that will be interacting and presenting even a wider array of subject material for our consumption.

    We have assembled a variety of packages to accommodate just about anyone wishing to attend.

    Our Attendee packages include ALL nightly room charges, ALL the meals, ALL the cocktail socials and ALL of the functions at the property itself.

    All you need to do is get yourself to the Islands and we will take it from there!
