MoKan NAMA Taste of KC Tour

Written by NAMA on Monday, February 25, 2019 , 12:09 pm

Start your 2019 Agri-Marketing Conference with MoKan NAMA’s Taste of KC Tour!

Savor, sip and share on NAMA’s flavor tour of Kansas City. The food and drink are sure to be on-par with the conversation and networking at The Roasterie and Rye. You’ll feel finer than a Prohibition-Era politician when you end the day with cocktails at Tom’s Town, a 1920’s-style Kansas City Speakeasy!

In the morning, your regularly scheduled caffeine buzz will get a jolt with a behind-the-scenes tour of The Roasterie factory. Attendees will learn
secrets of brewing the best at-home coffee, and receive a complimentary Roasterie pub glass – not to mention a sample of The Roasterie’s
mouthwatering Nitro, Cold Brew or Iced Tea.

We’ll keep the fun moving and get back to the roots of agri-marketing with a delicious meal at Rye on the Plaza. After chowing down, attendees will get the chance to learn about Rye’s farm-to-table philosophy, as well as their partnerships with local farmers who provide the ingredients for top-tier American fare.

Then, bootleg the spirit of Kansas City Prohibition-Era Spirits at the beautiful art deco lounge of Tom’s Town Distilling Co., a local speakeasy
that draws its roots from the infamously crooked politician, Tom Pendergast. Sip one of Tom’s Town’s award-winning craft cocktails after a tour of the distillery and barrel room. Because, as Tom Pendergast loved to say, “the people are thirsty.”

Register today so you can savor the aroma of the coffee business, share a farm-to-table meal and conversation,
and flout prohibition with your NAMA friends and colleagues!

Cost for the tour is $75.

Wednesday, April 10
9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

NAMA FoundationTopgolf Outing

Written by NAMA on Friday, February 1, 2019 , 9:14 am

We’re Dialing Up Your Golf Experience

The last few years have been such a success that the NAMA Foundation is continuing the alternative golf outing again for 2019! Join your peers at Topgolf for a competitive and fun time everyone can enjoy—no golf experience required.

Here’s how it works… Take a swing at microchipped golf balls, aiming them at targets to rack up the points. Just picture a 240-yard outfield with dartboard-like targets in the ground. You can choose from different games where you aim your golf balls at different colored targets. The closer to the center or “bull’s-eye” you get and the farther out into the field you hit, the more points you receive. Plus, enjoy great drinks and food in an upscale club atmosphere. Fore!

Are you more of a visual person? Check out a video of Topgolf.

Take a look at the website: Topgolf Overland Park

When: Tuesday, April 9, 2019

Where: Topgolf Overland Park

Time: 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Cost: $100/person

A chartered bus will leave the hotel at 1:00 p.m. to take everyone to Topgolf. Appetizers and drinks will be provided. 


Cost for the outing is $100 per golfer. Click here if you just need to register for the Golf Outing. If you need to register for the Golf Outing AND register for the Conference,
