Sneak Previews of 2009 Convention Sessions

Robin Heppell, who will be one of our Convention presenters, has taken it upon himself to interview a few of our speakers and create audio files on his site to provide sneak previews of their sessions.

If you're still deciding whether to attend or if you're already registered and want to get a flavor of some of the breakouts in store for you, stop on over to Rob's site at Funeral Gurus and check out the interviews. Thanks, Rob, for putting those together!

For what it's worth, our numbers for this event are looking great, with 305 booths currently pre-sold and registration figures at 120% of where they were two years ago, when we hit our all-time record (based on an apples-to-apples, two-weeks-out comparison). Not too shabby, especially in today's down economy. That speaks to the incredible slate of sessions Program Chair Jeff Kidwiler and his committee have put together.

It won't be long now! We're really looking forward to seeing all of you there!
