The National Coalition of Associations of 7-Eleven Franchisees (NCASEF) has announced its 38th National Convention and Trade Show—”In It To Win It”—is scheduled for July 14-18, 2013 in Las Vegas, at the famous five diamond Venetian Hotel and Casino Resort.
All of the approximately 4,500 7-Eleven franchisees throughout the country (representing 5,700 stores), as well as vendors selling to 7-Eleven, are invited.
More than 60 major sponsors and 250 exhibitor companies participated in the 37th National Convention and Trade Show this past July in Honolulu, among the most successful to date. As part of its annual giving campaign, the National Coalition raised $410,000 for two charities, Hire Heroes USA and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. NCASEF hopes to build on those successes and exceed both donations in 2013.
The Venetian Resort-Hotel-Casino, the largest property in the country to receive AAA’s Five Diamond Award and Mobil Four-Star, is one of the world’s most luxurious resort and convention destinations. Re-creating Venice’s legendary landmarks, the resort offers unmatched service and quality for leisure and corporate guests. The resort features marble facades, a working canal, over 300 mall shops, 16 fine dining as well as 21 casual dining establishments, two nightclubs and eight lounges.
“We’re looking forward to our biggest convention and trade show to date,” said Bruce Maples, chairman of the National Coalition. “The 7-Eleven system has added over 500 stores already this year, the company is implementing forward-looking technologies, and we have the most efficient distribution system available,” Maples continued. “We’re looking forward to hosting all 7-Eleven franchisees nationally, as well as our most significant vendor partners at the show.”
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 almost 4,500 convenience store owners whose nearly 5,700 franchise-owned stores employ almost 40,000 workers.
