NAC and IAVM to be Alliance Partners

| May 13, 2016

The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) along with the International Association of Venue Managers (IAVM) are excited to announce that the two trade associations have entered into an Alliance Partnership Agreement.

As part of the agreement, the two Associations have agreed to work together in sharing information and content in media outlets, press releases and social media networks to the benefit of their respective memberships. Also, each group has agreed to cross-promote two major events that will both take place in Minneapolis in July. NAC will host the Concession & Hospitality Expo on July 19-22 at the Depot Renaissance in Minneapolis. IAVM will host their Venue Connect just a few days later on July 23-26 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

The agreement includes complimentary trade show passes so that members of both organizations can attend both shows, and provides for mutual membership rates to exhibit or attend the full conferences.
