The Countdown Begins!
CHICAGO — January 20, 2020 — As part of the second annual National Vending Day — March 5 — NAMA launched a Tool Kit specially designed to support member company activities: “The Tool Kit — including graphics, FAQ’s, marketing ideas and more — provides turn-key resources for NAMA members to bring National Vending Day come to life in their markets. More value-added content, including best practices from year one and social media graphics will be shared broadly,” said Roni Moore, NAMA’s Vice President of PR.
For the second year, National Vending Day will recognize the people who proudly make, sell, enjoy and love vending and the products the channel delivers. From multinational brands beloved around the world to multi-generational business owners, route drivers and plant floor employees, vending touches people’s lives in ways large and small.
New this year: a more comprehensive effort, with an expanded focus on advocacy, culminating with events on Capitol Hill. NAMA will showcase the industry and its total economic impact of nearly $26 billion. The U.S. Convenience Services industry is represented in every community across the United States through traditional vending and micro markets — unattended retail — as well as office coffee and pantry services. The industry, providing 140,000 good paying jobs with $7.21 billion in wages, pays $3.5 billion taxes at every level of government. From manufacturing to small-drop distribution, the industry meets the needs of consumers everywhere they are.
