Exceptional Value.  Outstanding Event.

On behalf of the National American Logistics Association (ALA), I want to personally thank Sharon Zambo-Fan and the entire ALA Hawaii Chapter for facilitating another outstanding event. 

I would also like to give a special thanks to Mr. Robert Bianchi, the CEO for the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEX), who attended and provided excellent discussion with all the companies that attended. 

A special thank you to the Dr. Pepper and Snapple Group for sponsoring this year's show. We could not have provided the outstanding level of value without your support.

Most important, I want to thank all the companies that exhibited and supported this year's show. Our mission is to help manufacturers, distributors, brokers, media companies, of all sizes, to support and to successfully sell within the military resale channel. Already, we're seeing the success from these relationships. If you missed this year's show and want to make sure you make next years, just send an email to membership@ala-national.org.
