2012 Additional Conference Activities

Gift Bag for You

Every conference attendee will receive at check-in a take-home Gift Bag stuffed with mosaic goodies and freebies, all courtesy of SAMA’s great sponsorship family. So leave a little room in your suitcase for product samples, money-saving product coupons, magazines, brochures and catalogs, and other promotional items.

Tesserae Brown Bag Exchange

Saturday, March 3rd 11:00am

Give and get a tesserae surprise! Participate in SAMA’s annual brown bag exchange and return home with new materials and a new friend. Bring a small bag filled with tesserae from your own mosaic supply, materials you would be excited to receive. Maybe the tesserae are significant to you, rare or unusual, or particularly beautiful. Consider choosing materials indigenous to your region, found on a trip, or unique to your mosaic style. Your offering may spark a colleague’s creativity or just make her smile. Your tesserae must fit in a brown paper lunch bag. Double-bag your pieces for extra strength, and wrap any items with sharp corners so that the bag does not tear. Please include a slip of paper with your name and street or email address and a note telling why you selected the tesserae. At conference registration, a SAMA volunteer will take your bag in exchange for a ticket to be redeemed for someone else’s bag during the exchange.

SAMA Store

Be sure to stop by the SAMA Store INSIDE the Vendor Marketplace! You’ll also be able to purchase past exhibition catalogs and posters, back issues of Groutline, mosaic guide books, and collectible logo items from past conferences. Renew your membership, update your contact information, or just stop in and say “Hi!”


Saturday, March 3rd at 6:00pm in the LC Bluegrass Ballroom.

Each year, thousands of dollars in merchandise, goodies, and gift certificates are donated by our generous sponsors and vendors and given away in a pulse-charging raffle, making this a must-attend event.  This year, it will be close the conference with a bang!   It’s a surprise a minute and a fun and exciting way to wrap up a day of inspirational and thought-provoking presentations. The more tickets you buy, the better your chances of taking home one of the coveted prizes.
