Bally’s room block closes March 19

The room block for GTS at Bally’s closes March 19th — just days from now! Book your rooms before the cutoff to get the best rate!

To reserve your room for GTS 2008 online, you can go to the GTS hotel reservation page of the Bally’s website. Reserve your room today!

Staying longer than 7 nights? Book your reservation through the Bally’s Las Vegas call center at +1 800-634-3434 (or +1 702-967-4111). Ask the reservation specialist for the “Game Manufacturers Association 2008 Trade Show” rate, convention code SBGMA8.

Very important – We have had two calls from people who are saying the reservation agents can’t find our code or event name in the reservations system. As there are 200 reservation agents, we are trying to track down WHO is making this error. Our contacts have verified – again – that our info is in there correctly so this is very, very disturbing. If are having this problem, we need the name of the reservation agent you spoke with, approximate time of call, and number called from. This will enable our Bally’s contacts to pull the recording of the call and figure out what the problem is.

Questions? Contact Jodie Panzeri at Ops(at)gama.org or +1 614 255 4500.

Three shows for the price of one!

The Game Manufacturers Association (GAMA), the National Retail Hobby Stores Association (NRHSA), and the National School Supply and Equipment Association (NSSEA) are pleased to announce a “Mega Week of Trade Shows” in Las Vegas, from April 20-26, 2008.

All three associations will be having their respective shows autonomously, yet registration and badges for any individual show will be accepted for entry into the other two. Please check with the individual show websites for times and locations.

Entry to exhibit halls does not guarantee entry to all seminar and special membership programs in each show. The shows are being held at the Las Vegas Hilton and Bally’s Las Vegas.

Free Retailer Passport saves exhibitors time, trouble, and giveaways

Giving away product samples at this year’s GTS? Let the GTS Retailer Passport program help you easily promote and monitor your giveaway program. Here’s how it works: Every attending store location gets one passport. Someone from that location presents the passport at your booth. You tell them about your product, stamp the passport, and give them your sample. It’s an easy way to make sure that the right people get the right amount of your goodies!

To participate in the GTS Retailer Passport program, contact Matt Ragsdale (sales@gama.org, 614-255-4500). Register by April 11, 2008 to get into this year’s program!
