vending, Rahm Emanuel CHICAGO -- Rahm Emanuel, the 55th Mayor of Chicago, has issued an official proclamation welcoming participants in the National Automatic Merchandising Association's 2014 OneShow to the Windy City. This year's OneShow is set for April 9-11 at McCormick Place.

NAMA vice-president of events LyNae Schleyer reported that the proclamation expresses Chicago's pride in hosting the show and its educational program.

"NAMA has a strong tradition of uniting the leaders as well as 'up-and-comers' to develop modern products and service techniques," the mayor said. "NAMA provides advocacy, education and ongoing research for a membership boasting more than 1,800 companies. I recognize NAMA for work that impacts local and global communities."

Emanuel won three terms to the U.S. House of Representatives from the 5th Congressional District of Illinois, and served as chair of the House Democratic Caucus from 2007 to 2009. He was appointed White House Chief of Staff by President Obama after the 2008 presidential election.

Founded in 1936, the National Automatic Merchandising Association has been headquartered in Chicago for almost eight decades.
