NAMA Fly-In Features "Don’t Miss" Evening Event

June 17, 2015

CHICAGO – June 16, 2015 – The NAMA Fly-In, taking place July 21-22 in Washington D.C., will feature an outstanding Tuesday evening welcome reception and dinner -- a “don’t miss” opportunity for the industry.

Sponsored by Coca-Cola Refreshments and CPI (Crane Payment Innovations), the evening will take place in the Paladian Ballroom in the Omni Shoreham Hotel.  Since 1930, the hotel has played host to presidents and inaugural balls, making it a true Washington landmark.

Designed as a notable opportunity for operators to network, the evening will feature presentations by high-ranking Members of Congress who will address the group about the importance of the grassroots political process and the significant role operators play in that regard.

“As a member of the Emerging Leaders Network and a Captain for the Fly-In, I am looking forward to the opening dinner and the networking opportunities it will provide for young business people in the refreshment services industry like me,” said Chris Hart, Southern Refreshment Services.

“In my role as Fly-In Captain, I have joined a leadership team from across the country in promoting participation for the event. This dinner, immediately following the welcome reception and preceding the Monument by Night Tour, is a perfect kick off for the event as an important part our advocacy efforts,” he continued.

“We thank the industry for their participation and support of the Fly-In, and the dinner is no exception,” said Eric Dell, NAMA’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs.

“With their support, we’ve been able to develop a truly memorable experience for our members they will value and enjoy.”
