ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Registration for NACS Convenience Summit Asia (CSA), taking place February 28 – March 2, 2023, in Bangkok, Thailand, is now open. CSA is the only event where convenience retailers can see what future disruptions are taking place today.

The 2023 summit will provide an immersive look into the future of convenience retailing. Senior-level convenience and fuel executives will gather in person for the latest thinking and knowledge exploration on changing shopper behavior as well as deep-dive Ideas2Go Retail Experience Tours of some of Asia’s most iconic brands. No other convenience retail summit helps you uncover unique perspectives, drive value for your organization and build strategic relationships in Asia.

“Many of Asia’s most iconic brands are in Bangkok, all operating at a high level in a truly competitive market,” said Michael Davis, NACS vice president of member services. “These must-see retailers include CP All PLC’s7-Eleven, PTT, Café Amazon, Texas Chicken, Central Food Hall, Family Mart, Tops Daily and Shell.”

When it comes to the center of the store, “Bangkok is one of the most competitive price markets in the world,” Davis said. “It’s all about price competition with high standards.” Retailers who participate in the Bangkok store tours will get an up-close look at how the Thai convenience market successfully competes with supermarkets and minimarts.

The summit will feature:

  • Thought Leadership: Retailers will discover new ideas, products and solutions that are addressing the challenges and opportunities of today, tomorrow and 10-20 years into the future.
  • Strategic Relationships: No other convenience industry event brings together leaders in store operations, marketing innovation, retail design, fuel delivery and other key performance retail areas. Meet leaders who can make a difference to your business and career in a face-to-face setting.
  • Immersive Learning: On the heels of a disruptive two-plus years, attendees will hear retailer case studies, success stories and best practices that will help them benchmark their business for today and tomorrow.
