    PCG’s Symposium Concepts and productions intend to deliver up some of the most optimal full-service educational trade shows being provided in the pawn space and in other related industries to date.

      • Event Conclusion

    Our goal for the two upcoming shows will be to enhance the trade-show experience for our vendors and attendees by providing more direct inter-action on the trade-show floors. The host of high-level educational programs that will run concurrently and individually outside of trade-show hours will allow all attendees to attend the presentations they desire or all of them if they so choose. This will allow trade-show days to be dedicated solely to our vendor partners and attendees while hosting various functions in the trade show areas.

    We will be offering up a wide-range of high level educational series programs all geared to expanding business acumen, providing more access and knowledge to other opportunities and integrate with other business professionals up close and up front. A number of our Sponsors will be providing educational programs in options and benefits for their products and services.

    We have a guest “Key Note” speaker that also promises to rock the house!

    PCG is setting up our site and registration and IS pre-selling the event starting now.

    Individual attendance to the event will be $395 per person and will include all activities of the event itself.

    We will be offering a $100 pre-registration discount per attendee that will run till October 1st 2015 for any of the early birds who would like to save some money and secure their spot for the show.

    The Resort has provided us with a standard room rate of $169 per night at the property. We do have a block of rooms secured and are anticipating a sellout of this block. We do suggest pre-registration with PCG to guarantee space.
