Texas Social 2014

Texas Social 2014 update

This year's Texas Social turned out to be a huge success. The Texas Social was held on Thursday night from 8-Midnight during the National CEC Conference in Philadlphia. We had over 750 give away items (cowboy hats, bandanas, LED Blinkies, and Glow in the dark tubes) that were gone in the couple of hours. We had a superb band, Jakes Country Band as the entertainment. Door Prizes were collected from venders at the expo and winners returned to the expo to pick up door prizes. We had great response from the expo venders. Texas Social next year will be in San Diego, California at CEC 2015 Convention & Expo.  Expected date and time is April 9th from 8-12pm.
