Come join the Rainier Chapter of the American Payroll Association for Payroll Mystery Train on September 21- 22, 2017

 
Vendor Opportunities:

The vendor area will be filled with participants following clues from one scene to another, with the fun and excitement of playing your vendor games.  Be ready to show them all how much fun your products and services can be. 

We will provide you with vendor tickets to hand out to each participant. Once they have collected all the vendor tickets, they will be able to enter their name into a drawing for a prize, provided by the Rainier Chapter. This will provide you with the time you need to gather information from the attendee, give a demonstration of how you can help them be more successful, or you can just provide them with the ticket and send them on their way.  The choice is yours. The game guarantees everyone in attendance will visit with you. 

Our theme this year is "Payroll Mystery Train". Think Who Done It, Clue Style, how to solve the mystery of payroll on the Mystery Payroll Train .  We highly encourage you to join in all the fun by outfitting your booth to fit the conference theme. Vendors that participate in the theme will be entered in a best booth contest, the winning vendor will receive a special award and a gift certificate for 1/2 off the cost of the vendor booth for the 30th Northwest Regional Payroll Conference.

The winner will be announced during the closing vendor session.
