Elevate FAQ's

Q: Who is invited?
A:  The individual to whom the email was sent is invited.  AWPA invitations are intended for a particular person at a company, not the entire company.  For example, if is invited, Sally is the one invited, not Ted.

Q: Can I bring someone?
A:  Yes, both AWPA members and preferred vendors may purchase a ticket for one additional person if you so desire. For this event, we’d love for that person to be a personal guest, such as your significant other.  Please do not invite a separate vendor who is not on our list.  This defeats the purpose of YOU being our preferred vendor.   If you don’t have a +1, we want you to come yourself. We are all friends here and we want everyone to get to know each other!

Q: I received an invitation, but I can't attend the gala.  May I send someone else from my company?
A:  No; stand-ins are not permitted to attend.  The purpose of our exclusive and individual-based preferred vendor list is to get to know   YOU.  Two planning companies have vouched for YOU personally for your excellent product and customer services.  Not all   representatives of all companies provide the same level of service.  So Sally cannot send Ted in her place.  Ted may only attend if Sally is   in attendance.

Q: Can more than one representative from the same company receive an invitation to the AWPA Elevate?
A:  Absolutely!  If AWPA members love working with both Sally and Ted, they may both receive their own invitations to attend.  In that case, each of them would be allowed to bring a +1.
