Current Trends for the Pawn Industry Hello to all
PCG is proud to announce that we are taking our Pawn Symposium concepts that we produced back in 2011 and 2012 in the Cayman Islands and are expanding and rolling out our 3rd Annual “Pawn Symposium Conference & Trade Show in Orlando Florida”
Dates for our 2016 show are May 9th through May 12th and our 2017 dates are May 19th – 22nd.
We have selected the 4 diamond Gaylord Hotel & Resort in Kissimmee Florida as our host property and are looking forward to welcoming our growing community to our latest production series.
Here is a link to the Resort:
Here is some info from the property on the resort itself:
“Experience all the wonder and enchantment of the Sunshine State at the luxury Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center. Our hotel’s extraordinary service and superior amenities are conveniently located in the greater Orlando area – less than ten minutes from the main gates of Disney®. Our majestic resort spans over 63 acres and celebrates Florida’s history, culture and natural beauty in both architectural style and landscape design. Our extravagant South Beach pool, Cypress Springs Family Fun Water Park, luxury spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and 400,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space allows you to accomplish all your getaway desires without having to leave our resort. Whether traveling for business or pleasure, experience satisfaction at Gaylord Palms Resort, where extraordinary service and superior amenities create a world-class Florida escape”.
PCG is gearing these productions up to be both – family and business friendly events. Orlando Florida offers a wide range of activity for the kids and families alike and remains the #1 destination spot in the world today. The venue provides access to the theme parks and much more in Central Florida. Our shows will be open to anyone who wishes to attend with proper identification and registration.
Symposium Conference & Trade-Show
Through our active engagement in the Pawn community and other industries we have determined there is a common need to bridge a wider segment of other industries together within the Pawn space and vice versa.
The purpose of this format is so that we may all share in the collective knowledge, support, peer groups, relationships, and resources that are available to all of us in order to better serve our customer base, expand our operational capabilities and maximize our abilities to survive in this ever changing landscape we call business.
Through our combined global efforts PCG has developed a variety of colleagues and clients from a wide range of folks in the Pawn space and other industries like the alternative finance groups, jewelry operations, rent to own, music industry, gun industry, second-hand dealers, buy sell operations and Law enforcement to name a few.
We are here to attest to that fact that other industries share the same struggles we do in the ever competing business space in an attempt to make and create more business opportunities.
This results in seizing the opportunity to combine these other industries with our global initiatives while creating winning combinations along with access and input for everyone in business or those who may desire to be in business.
We believe this is a recipe for delivering up new faces, new clients, and new opportunities for those of us in the trade industries as the benefit to our supporters, clients, fans, family and others.
Our goal for the two upcoming shows will be to enhance the trade-show experience for our vendors and attendees by providing more direct inter-action on the trade-show floors. The host of high-level educational programs that will run concurrently and individually outside of trade-show hours will allow all attendees to attend the presentations they desire or all of them if they so choose. This will allow trade-show days to be dedicated solely to our vendor partners and attendees for more networking opportunities at the event itself.
We will be offering up a wide-range of high level educational series programs all geared to expanding business acumen, providing more access to other opportunities and integrate with other business professionals up close and up front.
We have a guest “Key Note” speaker that also promises to rock the house!
PCG is setting up our site and registration processes now and will begin pre-selling the event starting now. Individual attendance to the event will be $395 per person and will include all activities of the event itself.
We will be offering a $100 pre-registration discount per attendee that will run from now until October 1st for any of the early birds who would like to save some money and secure their spot for the show.
The Resort has provided us with a standard room rate of $169 per night at the property. We do have a block or rooms secured and are anticipating a sell out of this block. We do suggest pre-registration with PCG to guarantee room space.
More details will be posted as we set our agenda, symposium topics, trade-show details and more.
Feel free to contact us directly to get your name on the list and we will forward the registration information as it comes online.
