Vendor Opportunities:


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 still being determined.  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.
