Vendor 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 sally@abceventcompany.com is invited, Sally is the one invited, not Ted.

Q: Can I bring someone?
A:  Yes, you may purchase a ticket for one additional person if you so desire, but we strongly encourage you select another associate from   your business.  Please do not invite a separate vendor who is not on our list.  This defeats the purpose of YOU being our preferred   vendor.   From the example above, if Sally wants to bring Ted from ABC Event Company as her +1, she can.  Please feel free to attend alone.  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 vendor mixer.  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 Vendor Mixer?
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.
