USGNN Original StoryTEXpo™ Room Rates Soon to Rise-Book Now and Take in Key Business Seminars

Sunday, March 16, is the last day to sign up for discount room rates as part of Glass TEXpo™ '08. The historic Menger Hotel is the host for this year's regional trade show, which will be held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, April 10-12.

The Menger Hotel is offering a discounted room rate of $129 per single/double, plus tax. To book your room, call 800/345-9285 and be sure to mention you are with Glass TEXpo. CLICK HERE to register to attend the regional trade show, co-sponsored by the Texas Glass Association.

Glass industry professionals are signing up to take part in two packed days of seminars, including a number of sessions intended to help improve daily business practices.

For the technologically challenged, and anyone who just wants to learn more, TEXpo is presenting a seminar on computer basics: "Is Your Computer Your Enemy or Your Friend?" The seminar will teach you how to assess technology decisions so that you can ask the right questions, get the right answers and understand the applications for your business.

"How to Increase Sales in a Challenging Economy" will have plenty of tips for everyone. From the moment your customer interacts with your CSR or phone system through the end result and they are with their vehicle ready to sign off on payment, are you truly offering the highest level of quality? If you can't answer for sure, come and learn how an "undercover customer" might be a practice you need in your business's future to ensure your clients receive the experiences you intend for them.

Texans will find especially useful the seminar on Texas' new franchise tax. Effective January 1, 2008, significant legislative revisions were made to the Texas franchise tax. These updates impact the tax base and rate. This seminar will provide information on exactly what these revisions mean to glass businesses.
