Register Now! - Fall Regional Wholesale Meeting in San Antonio - October 4-6, 2015
Early October is the perfect time to visit San Antonio and Tom Preston, San Antonio Produce Market Manager has put together a great agenda for NAPMM’s Fall Wholesale meeting and there couldn’t be a more beautiful venue than the conference Hotel Valencia, a boutique style property located directly on the RiverWalk.
San Antonio is the seventh most populated city in the United States of America and the second most populated city in the state of Texas, with a population of 1,409,019. It was the fastest growing of the top 10 largest cities in the United States from 2000 to 2010.
The Alamo Mission in San Antonio ("the Alamo") located in Downtown, is Texas' top tourist attraction. Because of the mission, San Antonio is often called the "Alamo City" The River Walk meanders through the Downtown area. It was one of the first restorations of an urban river. Lined with numerous shops, bars, and restaurants, as well as the Arneson River Theater, this attraction is suffused with the local sounds of folklorico and flamenco music during the summer, particularly during celebrations such as the Fiesta Noche del Rio.
The Downtown Area also features Cathedral of San Fernando, The Majestic Theatre, HemisFair Park (home of the Tower of the Americas, and UTSA's Institute of Texan Cultures), La Villita, Market Square, the Spanish Governor's Palace, and the historic Menger Hotel. On the northern side of the Alamo complex, beside the Emily Morgan Hotel, is the San Antonio Cavalry Museum, which features cavalry artifacts and exhibits and is frequented by local re-enactors.
Our host, Tom Preston and his lovely wife Mary, will host attendees at their home to kick –off the event on Sunday evening. Monday will feature tours of the San Antonio Produce Market and the new San Antonio Wholesale Produce Market as well as lunch at the Acenar HotMex CoolBar sponsored by Allied/Republic Waste. Tuesday will feature a morning meeting and tours.
The Fall Meeting registration fee is $75 for current NAPMM members and $150 which includes a one-year membership for those who do not have a current membership. The $149 room rate at the Conference Hotel is good three days before or after the conference to give conference goers time to explore all that San Antonio has to offer. Register today!
