2019 SMALL PORTS SEMINAR WELCOME 


(Updated 06.05.19)

Meeting Location:
Enzian Inn
590 Highway 2
Leavenworth, WA  98826


Dear Port Colleagues and Friends:

Welcome to the 2019 WPPA Small Ports Seminar! 

Once again we will gather at the Enzian Inn in Leavenworth for two days of education, discussion, and networking with your port peers.

This year’s seminar will officially run from 1:00 pm Thursday, October 24, to noon on Friday, October 25. 

Rooms at the Enzian Inn have been reserved for our group but require a two-night stay. Those requiring only a one-night stay will be housed right next door, at the Linderhof Inn. Pets are welcome at the Linderhof Inn.

We look forward to seeing you in Leavenworth!   

Sincerely,

 

James Thompson, Executive Director - Acting
Missy Goodell, Member Services Manager


 

Attention Associate Members:  "Speed-NETWORKING" Opportunity -  Thursday, October 24, 4:30 - 7:00 pm

Our “Associate Member Speed Networking” will be held once again: On Thursday afternoon, the hotel will set up ten (10) 6’ tables in the same room as our reception (Continental Room).  You will set up your display on this table and at the end of our general session on Thursday; we will have our attendees move to that room to meet with you.  

Some of our ports are unsure of how to get a project going or who to go to for the help they need.  This will be your chance to help guide them through this process and educate them on what your company can offer.  The “Speed Dating/Networking” portion of the meeting will start at 4:30 p.m. and run through the reception which begins at 5:30 p.m. and continues until 7:00 p.m.  You will be able to leave your display up during the reception and our experience from previous years is that folks continue to visit your tables during that time.  We are required to breakdown and leave the Continental Room after 7:00 p.m.

This is a first-come, first-served offer and the tables are limited.  For the first ten (10) associate members who contact us, we will reserve a table for you.  You will be charged $150 for a table and this will include one free registration.  Any additional attendees from your firm will be charged the regular registration fee of $100 each.
 

OTHER Sponsorship Opportunities:

Thursday Evening Reception Food: $500 (4 sponsorships available)
–       Included: two free registrations and a table at the reception if you request it

Thursday Evening Bar: $1,000 (1 sponsorship available)
–        Included: three free registrations and a table at the reception if you request it

As always, all sponsors will receive recognition during the meeting as well as being listed on our website and in the program as an event sponsor.
 

Contact Missy Goodell at (360) 943-0760 or mgoodell@washingtonports.org to secure a Speed Networking table or to be a Sponsor.  Thank you!
