The NACS Crack the Code Experience offers three ways to dive into each on-trend topic.

October 13, 2020

ALEXANDRIA, Va.—The NACS Crack the Code Experience will feature more than 50 content-rich education sessions loaded with insights and innovation that pay off today, tomorrow and far into the future. Explore topics ranging from cannabis to food trends to delivery during the five-week digital experience and curated marketplace, November 2 through December 4, 2020.

Large or small, one store or 500+, c-store operators of all sizes can find relevant solutions via the NACS Crack the Code Experience. From strategy and market analysis, building social media buzz to data security, operators can increase growth and sales in any geographic location.

Here’s just a sampling:

Cannabis in the Age of COVID will be live on November 12 at 11:30 a.m. ET. COVID-19 derailed what was poised to be a landmark year for cannabis in terms of legalization and CBD regulations. Find out what’s next for the category in this session moderated by Melissa Vonder Haar, marketing director of ISEE Store Innovations, and featuring Jonathan Havens, partner, Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr, and a former FDA regulator.

Preventing and Deterring Theft will be live November 23 at 1:30 p.m. ET. In many instances, police will not come to stores or make an arrest for thefts below a certain value threshold—well above the price point of merchandise typical to convenience stores. Because of this, nearly 80% of retailers do not report theft—creating ever-increasing shrink. Some companies have hired their own security to deter theft, while others have created partnerships with local law enforcement. In this session, theft deterrence experts and retailers will identify some of the easiest ways to identify and lower instances of theft, as well as ways to keep employees safe. Hear from Mike Fitzgerald, protective services manager, QuikTrip Corp.

View the full lineup and filter sessions by the track that relates to your role in your organization: Category Management, Customer Experience, Foodservice, Fuels, Government Relations, HR/Labor, Marketing, Operations, Professional Development, Small Operator, Supplier and Technology.

Each Crack the Code Experience education session will be available in three ways:

LIVE—The session will launch for the first time. Speakers will be on deck to answer questions during and after the presentation through the chat function.

ENCORE—Sessions will be played identically as they were when launched LIVE, at a second scheduled time, except speakers will not be present to answer questions. The benefit of this format is that numerous persons will be experiencing the content together synchronously, with the ability to chat.

ON DEMAND—Within a week of the LIVE and ENCORE sessions, session recordings will be made available to all attendees to view any time they like. Access to these recordings will last through the end of 2020.

The NACS Crack the Code Experience is a five-week digital experience and curated marketplace connecting convenience retail buyers and sellers from around the globe. Running November 2 through December 4, 2020, it will feature 24/7 access to forward-looking ideas and insights, plus innovative new-to-channel products and strategic connections.
