The Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL) drew from the Hunger Games for its 2012 National Fall Leadership Conference (NFLC) titled Igniting Innovation. They offered workshops, keynote speakers, and networking opportunities in three Districts: Indianapolis, Denver, and Charlotte. We were invited to the District 3 event in Charlotte, North Carolina. Archery Tag®, Hunger Games-style, took place in the ballroom of the Westin Hotel. The 17th of November event was enjoyed by over 1,300 tributes reaped from the 2,500-3,000 attendees.
