 About

 

Keeping You Connected and Informed
In 2018, NACS President and CEO Henry Armour will share and discuss insights, issues and opportunities that are relevant to convenience and fuel industry retailers and suppliers at 16 Industry Update Luncheons around the country. And, you’re invited to attend.

An Event That Can Position Your Company for the Future
NACS Industry Update Luncheons bring together regional convenience and fuel retail and supplier leaders for a unique experience where they connect, exchange ideas and hear industry performance trends and metrics in a casual setting.

By attending, you’ll gain insight and knowledge on:

  • NACS State of the Industry Report data relevant to your region and state
  • Important legislative and regulatory issues facing the industry and how NACS is advocating on your behalf
  • Timely and topical initiatives, including nutrition and anti-obesity campaigns, motor fuels, tobacco regulations, card swipe fees and mobile commerce

To learn more, watch a short video or view photos from last year’s highly successful and often sold-out luncheon events.

At each Industry Update Luncheon, guests will enjoy casual networking time, followed by a seated lunch including a 60-75 minute interactive presentation and discussion delivered by NACS President and CEO, Henry Armour. Be sure to bring your questions!
