National Automatic Merchandising Association OneShow Exhibitors Support Strategic Sponsorships

Sponsorship packages for the National Automatic Merchandising Association's (NAMA) OneShow are once again overwhelmingly popular as evidenced by the significant number of exhibitors that have renewed their sponsorship packages, NAMA Director OneShow Sales and Service Sue Ralston, CEM, announced. In addition, Ralston reported that the show boasts several new sponsors including Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, Keurig, Inc., and Red Bull North America.

"Approximately 90 percent of 2010 exhibitors have renewed their strategic sponsorship packages, which are designed for additional visibility and access to NAMA members and attendees to OneShow 2011," said Ralston in a prepared statement.

The NAMA OneShow will be held April 27 to 29, at Chicago's McCormick Place North. It is a one-stop opportunity to see all that's new in the vending, coffee service and food service industry and truly a must-attend event.

The levels of sponsorship include founding/gold, silver, bronze and event, with each level offering specific benefits designed to provide year-round visibility. Benefits include mentions in pre- and post-show press releases and related mailings. InTouch Magazine, on the OneShow homepage and in the program book.

Promotion of sponsors continues throughout OneShow in the registration and VIP areas.

"We especially thank Kraft Vending & OCS for stepping up to the gold level and are pleased to announce an exciting new sponsorship by Mars Chocolate. The company will have an exclusive sampling event prior to the Opening Session on Wednesday afternoon," said Ralston. Mars Chocolate is also sponsoring the Drum Café, a unique and interactive event taking place at Center Stage at 2 p.m. Wednesday, April 27.

Ralston also mentioned the need to remind the industry that NAMA is a not-for-profit association, and all funding sources are reinvested into education, protecting and promoting the growth and image of the industry.
