The International Reading Association is going big this year by offering convention attendees an exclusive opportunity. You could be attending IRA’s 58th Annual Convention in sunny San Antonio as our VIP, an experience you won’t want to miss!
IRA’s “VIP Experience” package* includes a $100 gift card to Boudro's, a crowd-pleasing Texas bistro where the guacamole is made for you table-side and a $100 gift certificate to Paesanos Riverwalk, an old-world meets modern Mediterranean eatery that has been a local favorite for decades. The package also includes four tickets to the Rio San Antonio Cruises River Tour, a can’t-miss water tour led by guides who not only point out the sites but give you the history behind them. We’ll also upgrade your room reservation at your official IRA Convention hotel, because after all, don’t you deserve an upgrade?
As if that isn’t enough, the VIP winner will also receive spectacular treatment inside the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, including prime, up-front seating reserved at all three General Sessions, which means no rushing to secure your spot before each session begins! The winner also receives a VIP meet and greet with select speakers, a $100 voucher toward the purchase of books and merchandise at the IRA Bookstore, and a one-year online membership to IRA (existing members will receive a one-year extension to their current membership.)
Register on or before March 22, 2013 for a chance to win this package. Enter promotion code AC1309G when prompted. If you’ve already registered and booked an IRA Convention hotel, you’re already entered into the VIP contest. Our lucky winner will be notified by March 28, 2013.
The IRA 58th Annual Convention runs from April 19 to 22, 2013, in San Antonio, Texas. Visit www.iraconvention.org and the iPlanner Program Grid and Event Search for details.
