EAST PETERSBURG, PA — The National Association of Oil Heating Service Managers (NAOHSM) will celebrate its 50th convention and trade show in Hershey, PA, from May 18-22, 2003.

The upcoming convention will highlight a number of new events and showcase some industry nostalgia.

Antique truck and van buffs will have the opportunity to show and view restored oil trucks and vans, which will be showcased on the grounds of the Hershey Lodge. On May 19, attendees can cast their vote to determine Best of Show for the two nostalgia categories — oil trucks and service vans. Winners will receive a plaque and special recognition at the awards banquet on May 20. Visitors will also be able to view vintage burners, antique tools, advertising memorabilia, and more.

The traditional Management Day has been expanded to provide a variety of two-hour courses through-out the convention. According to NAOHSM, it has put together eight courses to assist managers and other conference visitors with everyday business-related issues. In addition, over 300 oil heating manufacturers and service vendors are set to display their products at the Hershey Lodge indoor and outdoor exhibit space.
