CHICAGO -- The government affairs symposium at the upcoming NAMA OneShow will address important developments at the federal level and their impact on vending, foodservice and coffee service companies' bottom lines.

Representatives from the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Justice and the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing will again be invited to attend and share their knowledge and guidance with NAMA members.

Final rules on calorie disclosure and the Americans with Disabilities Act accessibility requirements should be in place when the OneShow opens in late April, and legislative and regulatory experts will share guidelines on compliance. Timely updates on coins and currency, including paper currency redesign plans and how those plans may affect operators' businesses, will also likely be covered.

The 2012 NAMA OneShow will be held April 25-27 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas. Open to all show visitors, the government affairs symposium will take place on Wednesday, April 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
