ISSI Carnevale 2014 Co-chairs


TAKE-OFF Table Registration

21 Jan

Dear event leaders,

This year, we start our Carnevale season on Monday, February 3rd with the 2014 Carnevale Take-Off.  Some of you are familiar with our usual “Kick-Off” as the starting event, however this year we have decided to change it to “Take-Off”.   The idea is that you are in an airport getting ready to “take-off” to other destinations and cultures.

We invite you and your event group to sign up for a table at the Take-Off to showcase your event, performance, talent, etc.  This is the sign-up link.  Due to limited amount of space in the Ballroom, we have to narrow the amount of tables to 8-10.  Please be as detailed as possible in your sign up to make it easier for us to choose. It will be difficult!
