We are very excited for the 2017 SPEC Franchise Conference this year, which promises to be the largest event we have ever held! With a record number of TSPA locations, several new ESI locations, and the largest vendor support we've ever had, you can expect to have an amazing time of education, fellowship, and fun.
Participation in events like these are crucial to the success of your schools and we want you to bring all of the necessary team members you can; to accomplish this we make every effort to keep ticket prices as low as possible. A large expense every year is the catering of the food...specifically lunch. This year, we will provide an extended lunch break so attendees can seek out their own meal choices, whether at the several onsite eateries or the seemingly endless number of restaurant and fast-casual dining options around the hotel in downtown Phoenix.
We have a variety of classes available for each department in your school, our cocktail party for mingling with other schools and vendors, and our awards dinner and show that will include a variety of totally new award categories! If you have someone traveling with you this year who isn't attending the conference, but you'd like to have join you at the awards banquet - an option for a Awards Banquet-only ticket is available in Registration.
Be sure to include mobile numbers for all attendees you register as we will be sending info via text prior to and during the event. When posting to your school or personal social media pages about the conference, please use the following hashtags (use school brand that applies): #gainingtheedge2017 #tspaeducation #esieducation
