CAMA connection: CAMA Expo Sold Out
CAMA Expo Sold Out
CAMA is delighted to report a “sold-out situation” for Expo 2007 to be
held on May 18-19 at the Westin Bayshore Hotel in Vancouver. When we were first charged with booking space for our second Western
Show in the last four years, we were cautiously optimistic.
CAMA is delighted to report a “sold-out situation” for Expo 2007 to be held on May 18-19 at the Westin Bayshore Hotel in Vancouver.
When we were first charged with booking space for our second Western Show in the last four years, we were cautiously optimistic. Clearly, we overlooked the enthusiastic leadership of our West Coast Committee – co-chaired by Glen Jackson (Ryan Vending) and Gordon Leckie (Brokerhouse) – as well as the lure of the beautiful surroundings. This is great news for both suppliers and operators as it brings CAMA to an expanded audience; it also bodes well for the decision to rotate CAMA shows between Quebec, Ontario and B.C. on a three-year cycle.
CAMA Expo 2007 is shaping up to be an innovative and educational trade show. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit new exhibitors as well as returning companies, and to meet and speak with a number of members for whom a major reason for joining CAMA was to meet operators from the region.
The format of Expo 2007 is also new. The show floor will open on Friday afternoon, and remain open for an upscale cocktail reception concluding at 8 p.m.
HR consultant, Barbara Adams, will present a “tailored” workshop on a topic challenging all members today: “Finding and Keeping Great People” on Saturday morning before the trade show opens. Following on the 2006 success of the Healthy Vending Seminar, both Healthy Vending 1 and Healthy Vending 2 will be offered. We encourage you to pre-register for these important educational sessions, and please note that only CAMA members are eligible for the Healthy Vending Certificate (for more information e-mail email@example.com)
Visit the CAMA booth for the exciting release of our new industry advocacy program – designed to proactively tell a positive story about vending. Having been the brunt of too many negative advertisements and misinformed reporting, CAMA is designing a Good News program to tell our story to a variety of audiences.
Important industry partners are supporting Expo 2007. The B.C. Ministry of Health will be represented on the show floor and all attendees should take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from their dietician representatives. The Royal Canadian Mint will be there with their latest releases – as well as an Olympic athlete.
And, in closing, all work and no play is certainly not the intent of the show committee. We hope that you will join with us for a Saturday evening dinner cruise on the Magic Charm to cap off this wonderful event. See you in Beautiful British Columbia.o
