Come on down to AAGLA’s 15th Annual Trade Show, at the fabulous Sportsmen’s Lodge (which is more like a luxury hotel after their remodel), located at 12833 Ventura Blvd. in Studio City.
This year we will again conduct a drawing for a free booth for one lucky exhibitor at AAGLA’s 2012 Trade Show. If you’re interested and haven’t booked a booth yet, there were still a few left at this writing. Call Angela at 213-361-4190 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The seminar schedule follows, and the Exhibit Hall is open from 10am-3pm, and it’s all free to attendees.
