We’re there! Yes, the DDIFO National Conference will begin Monday at the Rio Hotel & Casino in all the glitter and glamour that is Las Vegas! I hope those of you who are planning to attend enjoy safe and comfortable travel to the “Entertainment Capital of the World”! And, I also hope you’re registered (so we’ll have a seat and meals for you) and ready to be informed, inspired and entertained over our time together at the 2014 DDIFO National Conference. Remember, if you’re there Monday morning, you are welcome to attend the DDIFO Board meeting, or you can relax until Monday afternoon when BAC Chairman Clayton Turnbull officially opens the Conference with his Opening Keynote. And, I’m hoping your travel plans are such that you’ll be able to stay and hear former franchisor Robert Hoffman close the conference mid-day Wednesday with a very forward looking Closing Keynote Address. In between, we’ll pack plenty of timely information, valuable advice and counsel and a host of solutions in the Franchise Solution Marketplace, of course along with the Hall of Fame inductions, some great social times and the entertainment and excitement that is Las Vegas. I look forward to meeting you there!
