Overview

Event Overview:

Shaping the Industry

For over 80 years, NACDS has served as a vibrant community of chains and suppliers. For much of this time, the NACDS Annual Meeting has served as its signature event. Those who attend for the first time quickly learn why. It is the opportunities. It is the results. It is the relationships. It is the member service. It is like nothing else. Make it yours!

Key Participants

Participants at the Annual Meeting include Retail Chairmen, CEOs, Presidents, and Senior Vice Presidents of Marketing, Merchandising, Operations, and Pharmacy and their executive-level counterparts and decision makers from supplier companies.

Strategic Exchange Appointments

The Annual Meeting provides numerous opportunities to meet and discuss strategic issues with key trading partners. Appointments, traditionally made in advance of your arrival, set the stage for profitable business initiatives implemented in part through future opportunities at the NACDS Total Store Expo.
