The National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) OneShowSM will move to Las Vegas for its next annual industry gathering, April 25 to 27, 2012, at the Venetian® Hotel-Casino-Resort and adjacent Sands Expo and Convention Center. While the city has changed, the OneShow remains the only time and place each year to meet with all the key players under one roof and see everything that's new in the vending, coffee service and foodservice industry. The event also will come on the heels of the first full year of NAMA's Industry Growth Strategy (IGS) and will showcase some of the many successes of that program, as well as plans for its future.
"Attendance in 2011 was up more than 11 percent over 2010, which was higher than the two separate 2009 shows combined," said LyNae Schleyer, NCE, CMP, NAMA's senior director, OneShow and Education, in a prepared statement. "In 2012, we expect even more stellar attendance due to all the buzz going on in our industry right now, not to mention the fact that Las Vegas is a terrific destination for both business and pleasure!"
There have been no prices increases for registration this year, and the early-bird member rate for this year's OneShow remains $79, through Feb. 15, 2012. "The low admission price covers a great many offerings, including three days on the show floor with 230-plus exhibitors, most of the education sessions, government affairs updates, outstanding networking opportunities - PLUS a free ticket to a surprise entertainment experience with top national billing."
Schleyer added, "We're very excited to be heading to Las Vegas with the OneShow. It's just an unbeatable location for affordable flights, hotel reservations, dining, shows and other attractions. We encourage everyone to bring along top staffers and family to enjoy the one-of-a-kind sights and sounds of Vegas!"
