MALVERN, PA -- MEI is planning to conduct a technology panel at the National Automatic Merchandising Association's 2013 OneShow in Las Vegas. The session, which will build on the success of last year's inaugural operator panel discussion, is set for 8 a.m. to 9:15 a.m. on Thursday, April 25, at Sands 407 in the Sands Convention Center.

Marketing director Chuck Reed will moderate a discussion among five operators who will relate their experiences in deploying the best existing and new technology to take back their margins. Enrolled as panelists are Alan Drazen, vice-president of Midlantic Vending (Philadelphia); Dan Holt, owner of Lincoln County Vending (Fayetteville, TN); Dick Hanson, general manager at Buffalo Rock (Birmingham, AL); Mark Stein, president and owner of Mark Vend (Northbrook, IL); and veteran operator and consultant Ben White of Vending Insights Inc. (Sykesville, MD). Operators attending the session will receive a technology White Paper at the close.
