Vegas Luck Smiles Upon NACE $10,000 Winner
NACE registered attendees had the opportunity to win a $10,000 cash grand prize
by dropping entry tickets, which they received with registration, into
five different tumblers located throughout the show floor and at various
event locations. To play the odds, attendees had to decide what tumbler
to place their tickets in, as tumblers were not combined, but treated
as independent drawings. The grand-prize winner was selected from the
five qualifiers (one from each tumbler).
Betty Osborn, co-owner of Quality Paint and Body, Inc. in Greeley, Colo.,
walked away the winner of the $10,000 cash prize.
"After attending NACE for years, winning this amount of cash was
delightful, to say the least. We haven't yet decided what to do with the
money, but we'll most likely invest in additional education for our employees
- perhaps set back a good bit of it for NACE 2007 registration and travel
expenses. NACE continues to expose our staff to a level of professionalism
that we strive to attain each and every day," said Osborn, a 21-year
veteran of the collision repair industry.
NACE 2007 will be held October 31-November 3, at the Mandalay Bay Convention
Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. The educational Conference will run
from October 31-November 3 (Wednesday-Saturday), and the Exposition will
take place Nov. 1-3 (Thursday-Saturday). The event will again be held
during Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week (AAIW), taking place that
same week in Las Vegas.
NACE, the world's collision repair event, annually draws an estimated
attendance of 25,000 to 30,000 industry professionals from around the
