     •       Brand Awareness. Participating in the SIOPSA Conference raises your profile, creates increased
             awareness of your company and its products/services and generates interest in what you have to offer.
             The event also offers an ideal opportunity to educate potential customers through demonstrations and
             deminar presentations.

     •       Awesome networking opportunity. Networking is one of the top three ways, along with speaking and
             writing, to get new clients. At the SIOPSA Conference, you can network with presenters, colleagues, and
             your ideal clients. It's a three-in-one big win!

     •       Prospects, Prospects, Prospects. You can go away from the conference with more new prospects than
             you know what to do with. Talk to people, make the first move. Have a really great "gem" to give to
             prospects, such as a free CD. You then give them one in exchange for filling out a form that signs them up
             for your newsletter.

     •       Great professional contacts. Other professionals will be exhibiting at the conference too. They may be
             directly related professionals in your niche, or they may represent other services that your ideal client
             may want to use as well. Connecting with them; making professional contacts and creating long term
             referral sources are all invaluable advantages.

     •       Meet with potential buyers

     •       Marketing your product

     •       Increased awareness to build a quality customer base
