Wimpy Goes To A Conference
When I received an email from YTB last month, I had a similar response. It seems that they are in the process of pre-selling registrations to their Annual Convention (July 29 to August 2, 2009 in St. Louis) for a mere $98. But you need to pay for it by December 31st. After that, it increases to $125 and finally $250 "at the door".
Pre-selling registrations at a discount is nothing new. In fact, CLIA began pre-selling their CLIA 360 show shortly after the last one concluded. But as we all know, thanks to YTB, CLIA is not short of cash and everyone is fairly certain that they will actually be around to have their show.
But such is not the case with YTB. With RTAs flying the coop in droves, the stock tanking, their insiders selling shares, two class action suits, an attorney general suit, and a MAJOR supplier preparing to terminate their agreement, I am not so sure YTB will be around for the big shindig in July.
