The sales team for the Conference Center expects approximately 600 attendees for the conference, using 250 lodging rooms in Lake Placid. "NYSSA is a great group for us," said Arlene Day, director of sales and service. "They fit perfectly in the Conference Center, and we have the outdoor facilities to showcase the Antique Sled Show and the groomer exhibits. This group is a perfect example of the potential for the Conference Center to increase business during shoulder seasons and mid-week periods." The Conference Center at Lake Placid sales team promotes and markets the many opportunities for the attendees, spouses and families to enjoy and explore the destination while in Lake Placid. Some of the promotions offered to visiting groups include a coupon booklet with specials at local restaurants, shops and attractions, a town-wide scavenger hunt, and group-specific offers, such as the specials that participating restaurants are offering to the NYSSA attendees.
