ASAE conference followup: watch out for those promotions

I just listened to a quick audio clip (available here) of a followup interview with an attendee at the ASAE and the Center annual meeting last August in Boston. This person was disappointed by all the hospitality vendors on the show floor, and in particular the ones offering personal incentives to meeting planners who book their destination. I must have missed this one, but from what she says, it sounds like someone was giving away a car to planners who bring meetings to their city?? She's right when she says that this doesn't make anyone look good, and that we need to "clean up our act."
