AWMA’s 2014 Marketplace & Solutions Expo was all-new, receiving rave reviews from exhibitors and distributor attendees alike, as AWMA implemented a number of enhancements to both our educational offerings and Expo floor – all making the AWMA Expo the premiere conference and trade show for convenience wholesale distributors.  Back at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino for 2015, we will continue to bring more action to our Expo floor, offer more business building content for distributors and bring more networking opportunities for all.  

“These Expo floor seminars are a great idea. It doesn’t draw people off the Expo floor for too long, yet we have an opportunity to learn.”

“This has been an eye opener. I never would have believed that we would get so much exposure as we have received here. It’s been fantastic. Our booth traffic has been incredible.”

Doug Byrd, president & CEO, Barry’s Gourmet Brownies, Clearwater, FL 

"We're here to meet all the manufacturers. AWMA had a great first-timer's event, with standing room only. We're getting new blood coming in, and it's exciting. It makes you want to come back again and again."
Dick Dunham, CEO, Stephenson Wholesale Grocery Co., Durant, OK, . 

"We are pleased with the changes AWMA made in the show. We have had a lot of customers come through today and we are getting a great opportunity to connect. Having seminars on the trade show floor helps to keep the people here. It's been a great show so far."
