7-Eleven National Coalition Sets 2012 Show Dates
TUCSON, Ariz. -- The National Coalition of Associations of 7-Eleven Franchisees (NCASEF), the professional trade association for 7-Eleven convenience store owners, is getting ready to say aloha to its 2012 convention.
The association will hold its 37th National Convention and Trade Show July 8 to 12, 2012 at Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort in Honolulu. The theme of the convention and trade show will be "Islands of Opportunity."
"We encourage both vendors and store owners to set aside these dates for the convention and trade show," said Bruce Maples, chairman of the National Coalition. "We're thrilled to be able to bring the convention and trade show back to Hawaii, and we want this experience to be both a memorable and profitable one for vendors, store owners and their families."
NCASEF is hoping to build upon this year's success. More than 60 major sponsors and 280 exhibitors participated in the 36th National Convention and Trade Show this past July in Las Vegas -- making it the most to date, according to the association. As part of their annual giving campaign, on the third night of the convention, NCASEF presented the Muscular Dystrophy Association with a check for $420,000. The next night, at the Grand Banquet, it presented Hire Heroes USA with a check for $310,000.
