This summer brings an extraordinary opportunity for the members of IAVM and The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC). In July, both trade associations will be holding their showcase events back-to-back in the city of Minneapolis. NAC will host the Concession & Hospitality Expo on July 19-22 at the Depot Renaissance in Minneapolis. IAVM will host its VenueConnect just a few days later on July 23-26 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
As part of the Alliance Partnership Agreement entered by the groups in May 2016, members of each association can attend the Trade Show portion of both shows for free. In addition, the agreement provides for mutual membership rates to exhibit or attend the full conferences.
This unique convergence in the Twin Cities allows for members of each association, who share many common opportunities and challenges, to maximize their travel and trade show budgets by attending both events.

About the NAC Concession & Hospitality Expo
The National Association of Concessionaires will bring together the top food and beverage concession leaders in the recreation and leisure-time industry at The Concession & Hospitality Expo on July 19-22 at the Depot Renaissance in Minneapolis.
Formerly known as the NAC Annual Convention & Trade Show, the event is an educational conference in its 34th year covering a wide range of concessions and foodservice topics. The business sessions are practical and focused on the concessions industry and provide interaction between all types of operations. In addition, exciting social functions allow for attendees to network in a less formal setting. Your full convention registration fee includes all educational sessions, food functions, social events, venue tours, and the trade show.
As part of the Expo, NAC will host its own trade show specifically for the recreation and leisure-time foodservice industry. The trade show will feature companies that provide products and services to all types of recreation, leisure-time, and public assembly facilities. The 2016 Trade Show will be held on Wednesday, July 20 (1-4 p.m.) and Thursday, July 21 (2-4 p.m.) and is open to full and tabletop displays.
