This year, The Trail To Success takes us to exciting Las Vegas, for the best in learning, networking, great food and fun (including the chance for a re-match of the fierce bowling competition we experienced at Reno in 2008!)




Gain invaluable knowledge--with keynote and educational sessions to grow your business.

Make new business contacts--take part in unparalleled networking opportunities and develop long-term relationships with leading experts in the field of weighing and measuring.

Interface with top suppliers--learn about the latest advances in the industry, and get demonstrations of the latest products and technologies that are changing the face of weighing and measuring. (Who'll win Outstanding Product of the Year?)

Enjoy a range of dining options--from Zagat Award Winning Restaurant Billy Bob's Steak House and Saloon, to every possible type of cuisine at the Food Court.

Save big! We've negotiated a great room rate of $45/night (with no resort fee!)

There's something for everyone at Sam's Town:
  • Enjoy the nightlife at Roxy's Saloon with live music and dancing!
  • Catch a movie at the Century 18 Movie Theatres
  • Experience Mystic Falls Indoor Park--relish the serenity of a rolling waterfalls, the delight of fountains shooting eight stories into the air, or the excitement of Sunset Stampede.

And, if you want to go off site, Sam's Town offers free round-trip shuttles to properties including Harrah's, The Riviera on the Strip, The Freemont, and The California.

Mark your calendars for four days full of great educational sessions, networking events, relaxation and fun. See below for our preliminary agenda.

ISWM Conference and Expo Exhibit & Sponsorship Opportunities

ISWM's Dealer / Distributor Survey
If you're a Dealer/Distributor member of ISWM, you may have received an email from ISWM Board member Bert Baxter asking you to complete an important survey as part of our new research program. We are gathering data from our Dealer/Distributor members in order to produce a research report on key operational trends and benchmarks that can help all our members improve their businesses.


The more answers we get, the more useful the report will be, so please check your email to see if you got the invitation to participate.
