Emails to Attendees
IIANM is pleased to share our attendee list with exhibitors. Most tradeshows don’t allow this anymore, so let’s keep this valuable perk by following a couple of guidelines:

We'll email all exhibitors the list of attendees about three weeks out from the event, then weekly as the event draws near. You will receive a final list of attendees after the Convention as well.
We ask that you do the following (based on the CAN-SPAM Act): Do not add attendees to your electronic mailing list without their permission. And if they request that you do not email them, please don’t!
As an exhibitor of the TradeShow, personal emails to the attendees to invite them for coffee, or to visit your booth, etc., is absolutely fine. Plus, you’ll get a much better response rate if your email is personal!
Please reference the following dates and name of the Convention: IIANM Annual Convention & TradeShow, September 17, 2021, Isleta Resort & Casino

If you are inviting any agents to dinner or late-night affair outside of the official Convention program, we ask that you please plan to do that on either Tuesday or Wednesday night 🙂
