    New Year, Lots of Changes!
    We really enjoyed having our Spring Show in beautiful Monterey, CA. Unfortunately, distributors found it difficult to travel so far for the show and our attendance wasn't where we wanted it to be. The PMANC Board worked very hard to find a new location that was close to where our distributor members lived, worked and played.  San Jose seemed to be a logical choice when we analyzed our heat maps. We discovered a company was remodeling a historical landmark in the San Pedro area of San Jose. 

    So what's changed from last year's Spring show?
    OND DAY EVENT
    - The 2020 Spring Showcase will be a one-day event on March 26 BUT we will have set-up hours from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm  March 25th. We strongly urge you to come and set-up early if at all possible. Access to Blanco will be from the street and we'll only have a few parking spaces in front of the building to unload. There is a large public parking garage located a block away.

    SHOW TYPE
    - The show will be a table-top show with 8' x 30" tables with a drape.

    NO GOLF
    at this Show - No golf tournament with the Showcase, however, we're planning a golfing event later in the year. 

    AFTER- PARTY
    - We're hosting a party AFTER the show from 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm. Drinks, music, great food and networking.

    END-USERS
     - Distributors will be able to bring their clients. Guests will wear a totally different lanyard for easy recognition and we'll have
    a lot of safeguards in place to make sure their presence on the floor will be monitored.

    NO HOST ROOM BLOCK -
    Since most of our exhibitors will be local, we did not secure a hotel room block. BOOK YOUR ROOM EARLY! There is a large convention in San Jose the week of March 23rd. Please make your own travel arrangements for a hotel room if needed. There are many hotels by the airport that have availability.

    WE APPRECIATE YOU!
    Thanks to all of you who have supported PMANC through the years. We simply wouldn't have been able to do what we do without you! Please let us know how we can better serve your needs in the coming year. Let's keeping GROWING together
