Stay Connected at the Spring Show, Win Prizes
At the 2015 World Show and Celebration, the MFTHBA launched its new mobile alert service. This service allows those interested in MFTHBA programs and events to receive information directly to their cellular phones. In addition to the main group, special groups were established for the MFTHBA’s two main events: the Spring Show and Three Year Old Futurity and the World Show and Celebration.
Attendees to this year’s Spring Show and Three Year Old Futurity are encouraged to sign up for the special Spring Show and Three Year Old Futurity text group. “We had excellent feedback from exhibitors and attendees at the Celebration last year,” shared Amber Wilson, 2015 MFTHBA Promotions Committee Chairman and now Region 4 Director. “This method of communication allows the MFTHBA to directly connect with people at the show.”
Similar to the way the system is used for the World Show and Celebration, subscribers can expect to receive an increasing number of text messages as the event gets closer and during the event itself. “We try to keep text messages to just a couple a month for most of the year but as the event gets closer, subscribers can expect one per week. During the event itself there may be several per day,” shared Ms. Wilson.
Signing up for the text group is open to anyone interested; however, there may be fees associated depending on the subscriber’s cellular phone plan.
Starting Wednesday June 8 through Friday June 10, subscribers to the Spring Show and Three Year Old Futurity group will be randomly selected to win gift bags provided by the MFTHBA Promotions Committee. All subscribers are eligible. The winner will be randomly selected by the MFTHBA mobile alerts service provider. Winners will receive a text message alerting them to their winnings. Winner must be present at the show the day they receive their text to win. Prizes must be picked up in the MFTHBA the same day.
