Hotel owner Subhash (Sam) Shah was the winner of a new 32GB IPAD 2 at the ValueXpress booth at the Asian-American Hotel Owners (AAHOA) Convention and Trade Show in Las Vegas, NV last week. When we first contacted Mr. Shah and told him he’d won the IPAD, he responded, “No, I don’t want to buy an IPAD!” Then just as quickly he remembered the ValueXpress drawing and realized he had won the IPAD! The excited Mr. Shah came right over to our booth to claim his IPAD.
Mr. Shah is the owner of the Bali Hai hotel located on North 1st Street in Yakima, WA. The hotel is designed in “Tiki” style, including a distinctive neon sign. The lobby has Tiki décor and Sam has neat reproduction postcards of the Bali Hai in its early days. Sam has owned the 28-room property for 4 years. The property has a nice pool and a great family atmosphere.
“We were thrilled that Sam was in the trade show hall when we drew his winning card,” said Jay Bhakta, who runs the Mississippi office for ValueXpress. “It was a pleasure to meet and speak with Sam.” A big success, over 300 cards were submitted for the IPAD drawing.
