Multiple winners of cash and prizes at SURFACES/StonExpo/Marmomacc Americas 2012
Whether it was a random education session, a crowd waiting for Chris Grundy’s or Antonio Ballatore’s autographed photo, or a large gathering standing in line at on-site registration, the promotion ran true to its pre-event campaign – winners could be awarded at “Anytime. Anywhere. Anyone,” the organization said.
Jami Battin of Millers of Clafin in Great Bend, Kansas was thrilled to winduring her 12noon Wednesday session and said, “This is wonderful and so gratifying to be awarded while simply participating at the show. I’m minding my own business, listening intently to Danny MacNair present his tips and tricks on selling stone, and I win a $100 bucks! What could be better? I’m definitely going shopping!”
An additional $1,000 Big Money giveaway was done daily at 2pm at the Custom Building Products booth. Each attendee was given an entry ticket to drop in one of two hoppers for the daily drawing to choose/contact three finalists. Of the three attendees that won the daily cash, Laurie Goodrich of Goodrich Floor Coverings in SaltLake City, Utah, was the show’s Thursday Big Money winner. Since the rules state you must be present to win, once she was contacted that her ticket had been drawn as a finalist, she had to rush over from the Tropicana.
“My husband and I had just left the show floor and were resting after walking the exhibits for three days. As soon as I got the call, we headed back over to the hall and I’m so glad we did. Winning the $1,000 cash was indeed a surprise to what we felt was already a good experience. We come every year – the last 15 years straight – and wouldn’t miss it,” she said.
