The Show

Many associations around the country, such as ours, have joined forces and are participating in regional trade shows. LOMCSA (Louisiana Oil Marketers and Convenience Store Association) P&CMA (Petroleum & Convenience Marketers of Alabama) and MPMCSA (Mississippi Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Stores Association) hold the Gulf Coast Food & Fuel Expo in the spring of each year, in Biloxi, Mississippi.
