MYRTLE BEACH, SC -- An awards ceremony at the 2012 Atlantic Coast Exposition recognized outstanding service to the industry, the sponsoring state associations and the community.

The Virginia Automatic Merchandising Association conferred its Vendor of the Year Award upon Rick Matthews, H&L Tom's Distributors Inc. (Virginia Beach, VA).

Additionally, show managers honored this year's best ACE exhibits.

Consolidated, followed by Newco Enterprises. In the Single-Booth classification, first place went to Flowers Foods/Mrs. Freshley's and second to Kellogg's.
