Did you know that when a Vendor Signs up to become a Sponsor, they receive a ZAG license plate highlighting a very important conservation organization and ZAG, Inc. makes a donation to the highlighted organization for that year? When you are at a trade show, don't forget to spot that license plate and thank them for being a Sponsor!
