Networking Events & One-on-One Appointments

NALMCO is cool under the heat of the California sun as you kick back and experience the many networking opportunities the Convention has available. From the re-designed opening reception that gives you space to plan meals out with your favorite representatives and colleagues after the reception to being in complete control of your One-on-One appointments, you have several chances to connect with attendees and friends including: 

Networking breakfasts in the exhibit hall

Free time to enjoy breakfast, visit exhibits and chat before activities begin.

Networking receptions

Fun and interactive receptions designed for casual interactions. 
  • Sunday evenings reception is a redesigned shorter light-reception with passed hors ‘d’oeurves and a beverage to kick off your evening before heading to dinner with your favorite representatives and colleagues.
  • Monday evening’s reception is a casual tailgating party where you can wear apparel from your favorite sports team aiding in new conversations and giving a whole new name to fun!
  • Tuesday evening’s reception offers a time to mingle with the crowd, meet new people and simply enjoy your evening together.

Networking Event

NALMCO’s premier networking opportunity is similar to speed dating, but with a bit more pizzazz! This fast-paced networking event is designed to have each General Member speak to each Associate Member for two to three minutes. It is not designed to display products/services, rather, Associates need to be prepared to give their elevator speech.

Each General Member Company will have its own small table. Associate Companies will meet with the General Members, one-on-one, for two to three minutes at the General Members table. Music signals Associates to move to the next General Member table. The music will be lowered while visiting. To be prepared for this event, you’ll will want to bring at least 100 additional business cards.

One-on-One Appointments

New in 2017, NALMCO will provide General Members and Exhibitors with One-on-One appointment cards so you can make appointments through the Networking Event with the those whom you need to devote more time.
