"Cinema Show & Tell" 2015
Please join Mid-Atlantic NATO for our 6th Annual "Cinema Show & Tell" on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 12 & 13, 2015.
Thanks to support from over 500 attendees including 75 different vendors and 10 studio partners, our regional convention continues to grow every year!
This year we are excited to announce a few changes including a new two-day format at The Waterford of Springfield. Yes! Tuesday's trade show and banquet, as well as Wednesday's Seminars, will all be held at The Waterford. We will go offsite for a few hours on Tuesday afternoon for our Studio Showcase at the nearby Regal Stadium Kingstowne 16, but other than that, we'll be in one place both days.
Our educational seminars will feature Larry Etter of NAC. (National Association of Concessionaires), speakers from Homeland Security and NATO plus more. Stay tuned for information!
For our overnight guests, we are excited to return to the Hilton Hotel in Springfield, Virginia as our host hotel at an incredible rate of just $124 per room per night. This great location in northern Virginia has easy access to major highways and public transportation, and is just a short drive or metro ride from Washington DC's Reagan National Airport. The hotel is within walking distance of The Waterford as well as the recently re-opened Springfield Town Center.
Who should attend?
This is your perfect opportunity to meet independent and local theatre owners as well as managers from the larger circuits who influence the corporate buyers!
Get to know your vendor and film studio reps in a smaller venue where they can take the time to visit with you one on one!
This is your chance to feel like you are part of the big picture! Learn about new products from the vendor reps without the large expense of traveling to a national convention. Meet film studio reps and attend seminars to learn more about the industry.
