2 Tanka staffers take their first trip to Las Vegas to network, learn about exporting and shipping
One of the ways Tanka Bar rounded out 2011 was sending our shipping and fulfillment manager, Rachel Hunter, and Eugene Stover, sales specialist and customer care, to Las Vegas, NV. They represented Native American Natural Foods at the Intertribal Agriculture Council Symposium.

"It was awesome! I would definitely go back if I could. It was like there were so many places to be and to go see in such a small time frame," Eugene recalls about their visit. "During the day, we had conference meetings on how to export products to different countries. It was exciting to learn about because we are looking into exporting products."

There was plenty to learn at the event, but they also got to squeeze in a little sight-seeing at places like M&M World, New York-New York and rode on the roller coaster. They took pictures with Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Jimi Hendrix at Madame Tussauds wax museum.

Rachel found the opportunity not only educational, but exciting as well. She said she learned a lot about the shipping business.

"My trip to Las Vegas is something I will never forget, I just want to thank Mark [Tilsen] and Karlene [Hunter] for choosing Eugene and I to represent our company with the Intertribal Agriculture Council," Rachel said. "The IAC seminar helped me with some of my shipping concerns, and talking with other people who are in this type of department gave me a few good tips on how to save money in shipping."
