As you make your plans to attend the International LCT Show, Feb. 29-March 2, please join me as I host the very first networking session of the Show, Sunday, Feb. 28, 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Oceanside C, Mandalay Bay conference center, Las Vegas. If you are coming for the first time, this is the best way to meet new friends at the start of the annual global Show. Don’t worry if you don’t know a soul, as I am going to take care of that for you in this structured and fun event sponsored by Chosen Payments.

Come early as this session was standing room only at the LCT East Show on Nov. 8, 2015. I’m going to spur a flurry of new friendships, new business relationships and business card exchanges in a session similar to speed dating.

Here’s how it works:
You will take a seat at a small table opposite another operator and engage in a two-minute quickie conversation. Each party gets 60 seconds to share information about the area they serve, fleet size, length of time in business, or any company details. At the end of the timed discussion, I’ll ring a cow bell and shout out, "ROTATE." One person would follow an arrow on the table and move to the next table to begin the next session while the other person remains.

Some of the most popular affiliate managers on the planet will be present, including Perry Barin from Music Express. Barin is always looking for top talent in small markets, and this could be your chance to get onboard with one of the most established networks in the industry.

If you really like someone and want to move on to a “second date” we will have a "mingle area" where you can take your new relationship to the next level over a cocktail. This is another example of the networking opportunities provided at LCT shows specifically aimed at helping you grow your business.

Remember, you don’t have to be a “newbie” to come to this session. If you like meeting new people, this is the place to be. My friend and industry partner, Jeff Brodsly, CEO of Chosen Payments, will share the stage with me.

Chosen Payments has generously sponsored this one-of-a-kind session and I will share my own experience about being a client of Chosen Payments. I call myself a Chosen One as they have gone above and beyond my expectations. More on that story at the Show. Come see us! Come meet new people! See you there on 02/28/16 at 4 p.m. Put it on your calendar now!
