There may be a few more words to describe the last date you can register for the 2018 BetterInvesting National Convention, but I hope the headline of this blog post will get the message across. Yes, Sunday, May 13, is the final date that registrations will be accepted for BINC, which will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Orlando at SeaWorld from May 17 – 20. There’s no hope that registration will be extended, so you must act now! Go to the BINC webpage and register immediately.
If you miss this last opportunity to register, you’ll also miss the most concentrated, highly acclaimed investment education convention in the nation. Since 1951, BetterInvesting has provided the tools and methodologies so that ordinary people from Main Street could reap the benefits from Wall Street and become lifelong, successful stock owners of corporate America.
Sixty-three classes will be offered, designed to increase your investment knowledge from newbie to seasoned-investor status. The schedule for these classes is now available for your viewing. Decide ahead of time which classes you’d like to attend and download to print the handouts, which will not be available at BINC, or view them from your laptop, tablet or other device while in class.
If you don’t register but you’re in the Orlando area for other reasons and your schedule permits, consider coming just for a day or so during the week. You will not be disappointed. Stop by the BINC registration desk to inquire.
Public Day Is Free on May 19
Saturday, May 19, is Public Day — a day anyone is invited to participate in free of charge. There will be plenty of investment education, including the keynote address, “50 Years of Lessons Learned,” delivered by Kelley Wright, managing editor of Investment Quality Trends newsletter. Representatives from government and different companies will speak, including from the FINRA and the Securities and Exchange Commission. BetterInvesting experts will also teach sessions on mutual funds, free online screening, and BI’s online tools. Download the Public Day schedule from the BetterInvesting National Convention webpage and register for this one-day event at Eventbrite. No meals are included, so plan accordingly.
Take the Trolley
The I-RIDE Trolley, which travels the International Drive Resort Area in Orlando both northbound and southbound, will be available right outside the lobby of the hotel. Trolleys arrive/depart approximately every 20 minutes. A map of the trolley service area will be in your attendee bag. One-day passes are only $2 per person, with lesser rates for seniors. Maps and other Orlando booklets of information will be included in the attendee bags. The trolley brochure will explain its route to attractions and places to eat, hours of operation and fun things to do.
In conclusion, don’t let the remaining few days before May 13 end without registering for BINC. More details can be found on the BINC website: http://www.betterinvesting.org/biconvention
