Post Your Messages of Gratitude to Our Troops!

Have you ever wanted to express your appreciation to our men and women of the U.S. Armed Services to just say “Thanks” for serving our country? Now you can – just by posting them right here on the FOSE Insights Blog!

Through our partnership with Operation Gratitude, we’re collecting your messages of gratitude for our troops, which will be included with care packages sent to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed in harm’s way. To participate and express your gratitude, simply post your message in the comments below. Your messages will be included with care packages put together and shipped by the good people at Operation Gratitude, all wrapped with good wishes of love and support!

Operation Gratitude seeks to put a smile on a service member’s face & express our nation’s appreciation by sending care packages and letters personally addressed to U.S. Military deployed in harm’s way, their children left behind and Wounded Warriors recovering in transition units. Help support their mission and show your appreciation for our troops by posting your Message of Gratitude below today!

Support Our Troops: Retweet & Recycle Your Phones at FOSE

Great news – FOSE is partnering with Operation Gratitude on a phone recycling initiative to support our overseas troops!

Operation Gratitude seeks to put a smile on a service member’s face & express our nation’s appreciation by sending care packages and letters personally addressed to U.S. Military deployed in harm’s way, their children left behind and Wounded Warriors recovering in transition units.

Simply bring your old cell phones and smartphones to FOSE, July 19-21, and drop them off at the 1105 Media booth on the Expo floor – booth #521. All phones collected will be recycled to benefit Operation Gratitude and help them send care packages toU.S.troops.

Plus, 1105 Media, Inc. will donate one care package for every 30 retweets of the following between now and Tuesday, July 19th:

So, gather your old phones and collect them from friends and co-workers to bring to FOSE – and don’t forget to retweet the message above to help FOSE and Operation Gratitude send care packages to our brave military men and women serving our country in harm’s way!

Exhibitors Prepare for FOSE

Exhibitors Prepare for FOSE

 

The count-down is on! FOSE 2011 opens in less than 5 weeks…so to all the companies preparing to exhibit, we have one question for you:

 

Is your exhibit ready?

 

For anyone who may be new to exhibiting, that really isn’t just one question because so much goes into preparing to exhibit at a show, it’s really a series of questions. As the seasoned pro know, you can’t just show up to your booth, a lot of work goes into preparing for the opening of a show.

 

Calling All FOSE 2011 Exhibitors

So, on that note, we’d like to take this opportunity to remind all FOSE 2011 exhibitors that discount order deadlines are fast approaching for the following booth services:

  • Hi-Tech Electrical Discount Deadline = June 28
  • Freeman Advance Order Discount Deadline = July 1

 

You can find all discount deadlines and order information in the FOSE 2011 Exhibitor Resource Center. And, stay on top of all upcoming deadlines and important dates with the FOSE Cheat Sheet.

 

We look forward to seeing you next month at FOSE!
