NFAIS Annual Conference

National Federation of Abstracting and Information Services
Strategic Imperatives--A Meeting of the Minds
Four Seasons Hotel, Philadelphia, PA
Feb. 21-24, 1999


Maybe you couldn't get away this year to attend all four days of the
NFAIS Annual Conference, or even two days under our "half-conference"
rate.  With about two weeks to go until the doors open, we've already
achieved our expectations for this meeting.   But there are about 30
seats still available, which we'd like to offer on a first-come basis to
those who only have a day to spare.  Yes, you can still sign up for full
or half conference registrations, but starting today we'll also accept
registrations for single-days only.  Take the train from D.C., New York,
or Boston and drop in for the program, hold sidebar meetings with your
business associates, or simply mingle with 200 leading figures in the
database industry.

Daily registrations are a great way to give your staff exposure to the
Federation without incurring overnight expenses.  They are also a great
way to still "hit the conference" while staying in route for the meeting
you need to attend the next day.  All you need do at this point, is
choose your day . . .
