The MiLB™ Promotional Seminar centers on the exchange of ideas amongst clubs. As the saying goes, ONE IDEA IS WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION. The same can be said for your personal and professional networks. Making a new connection can become an opportunity that may not have presented itself otherwise.
Attendees will have the opportunity to interact and network during any number of the many social events that will be held over the three days in Louisville. Please take advantage of these events and make your Promotional Seminar experience as beneficial as possible.
