Last weekend, thousands of convenience professionals began arriving in Las Vegas for an action-packed and insight-filled NACS Show. The annual event is expected to draw upwards of 24,000 attendees.

The NACS Show is an opportunity for convenience and fuel retailing industry professionals to conduct business, network and connect with peers and experts. The Show features 60 education sessions and a 420,000-sq.-ft. expo showcasing products and services from more than 1,300 companies. This is the 15th year that the event has been held in Las Vegas.

The Show officially began yesterday with education sessions, the unveiling of the Cool New Products preview room and a keynote session featuring marketing executive Bonin Bough. The pace picks up this morning with more education sessions, a general session featuring Sheetz CEO and NACS Chairman Joe Sheetz, and “Un-Marketing” expert Scott Stratten, and the much-anticipated opening of the expo.

The learning, buying and selling, networking and fun at the NACS Show continue through Wednesday. For Show highlights—including keynote session recaps, photos and more—look for a special NACS Show Edition of the NACS Daily each night this week. Additional show coverage will be provided at and in the November issue of NACS Magazine.
