The 37th NCASEF National Convention, themed Islands of Opportunity, prepares to welcome attendees to Honolulu.
The National Coalition of Associations of 7-Eleven Franchisees (NCASEF) announced today its 37th National Convention and Trade Show will be held July 8 – 12, 2012 in Honolulu, Hawaii, at the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort.
Vendors, store owners and their families are all encouraged to attend. The theme of the convention and trade show will be “Islands of Opportunity.”
More than 60 major sponsors and 280 exhibitors participated in the 36th National Convention and Trade Show this past July in Las Vegas, the most successful to date. As part of its annual giving campaign, on the third night of the Convention, the National Coalition presented MDA with a check for $420,000. The next night at the Grand Banquet, the Coalition presented Hire Heroes USA with a check for $310,000. NCASEF plans to build on those successes and equal or exceed both donations in 2012.
The Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach Resort, which is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary, occupies 22 lushly landscaped oceanfront acres on the widest stretch of famous Waikiki Beach and offers a wide variety of fun activities for the entire family.
“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,” Maples continued.
The National Coalition of Associations of 7-Eleven Franchisees is the national trade group for 7-Eleven storeowners in the U.S., representing the interests of 5,000 franchise-owned stores, and their membership organizations, which employ nearly 40,000 workers.
