Podcast: One thing every operator and supplier should do in July

July 5, 2023
In this episode of Automatic Merchandiser’s Vending & OCS Nation podcast, host Bob Tullio explores and discovers the importance of industry advocacy and NAMA's Fly-In & Advocacy Summit that is designed to promote it.

What should every operator and supplier consider doing in July? It’s the NAMA Fly-In & Advocacy Summit, July 25th and 26th in Washington, D.C., our nation’s capital, where operators can have their voices heard by legislators.

Matt Bisenius, vice president of external affairs at NAMA, and Robert Jackson, director of government affairs, present a strong argument for attending the event, while outlining what operators should expect, including a cocktail on a storied rooftop, and the potential results of the effort. 

This podcast also features some insightful comments from Mark Dieffenbach of Hershey and Louis Baresh from Executive Refreshments in Dallas.
