4 Reasons to Get Excited for CAMEX 2016
02/15/2016 — Leah Palnik
This time of year there’s one word you’re guaranteed to hear all around the PartnerShip office…CAMEX. CAMEX is the campus retailing industry’s largest educational conference and buying expo, attracting more than 2,250 attendees from nearly 1,000 campus stores as well as 650+ exhibiting companies. It’s produced and hosted by our parent company, the National Association or College Stores (NACS), so it’s a very important show for us. Our staff has been busy preparing for CAMEX 2016 and we can’t wait to share all of the great things we’re brining this year with you. Here’s why you should be looking forward to joining us in Houston:
1. Because no one can resist free coffee and cookies
You read me right – FREE. During the show you can come to our booth to relax and enjoy a cookie with a hot beverage. We know that when you come to CAMEX you're doing a lot of running around and it can be tiring. That’s why we want to give you the opportunity to kick up your feet and recharge.
2. Because we’re all just big kids at heart
If relaxing and recharging isn’t quite up to your speed, we have something else you might enjoy. You can get in the action with our new racing game! Who says race cars are just for kids? You can challenge your fellow show attendees or one of our staff (just don’t expect us to let you win) in a variety of battle and race modes on this exciting track.
3. Because we like winners
We’ve joined forces with our fellow NACS Inc. subsidiaries, IndiCo, NACS Foundation, and NACSCORP, to give you a chance to win one of five great prizes. Four people will be selected to win a gift basket valued at $250 and one lucky winner will go home with the grand prize – an iPad Air.
4. Because an aquarium is a pretty awesome place to throw a party
The fun doesn’t stop at the show. We’re sponsoring a party with IndiCo, NACS Foundation, and NACSCORP at the Houston Downtown Aquarium on Sunday night. Make sure you come to the Night at the Aquarium to explore the rides and exhibits and enjoy some complimentary food and drinks.
Are you excited yet? All fun and games aside, the best part of CAMEX for us is the opportunity to connect with you. If you’re going to be at the show, we hope you stop by booth #2931 to have some fun with us. See you in Houston!
