North Carolina Vending Association Draws 120 To Membership Appreciation Event And Golf Outing In Jefferson, N.C., Looks Forward To Atlantic Coast Expo

Nearly 120 members and guest recently gathered for meetings, food, fun and networking. The North Carolina Vending Association (NCVA) membership appreciation event and golf outing was held at the Jefferson Landing Golf Club and Resort in Jefferson, N.C.

An added bonus brought some friends from our sister associations in South Carolina (South Carolina Vending Association) and Virginia (Virginia Automatic Merchandising Association) to join in on the fun.

NCVA president (and Atlantic Coast Expo Planning Committee Chair) Wayne Seagraves said in a prepared statement, “We all had a great time getting together to have some fun and get a little work done at the same time. The feedback I have received from the event has been overwhelmingly positive – folks had a great time and were very pleased how the meeting was planned and executed. Everybody is ready to do it again – what a great stepping stone to kick us off in a big way for ACE in October.”

ACE 2012 has sold out the exhibit space and operator registrations are underway. ACE Show Director Beth Bowen commented, “We were thrilled to sell out our exhibit floor over three months before show time. There seems to be a renewed excitement in ACE and the value of the expo to our industry.

Michelle Thomsen, assistant director commented, “We have been extremely pleased how operators are registering at such a quick pace for the event.” Online registrations are available at
