NACS events are designed to help strengthen the convenience and fuel retailing industry with relevant and timely topics that include leadership, legislative advocacy, global markets, the newest products and services and targeted educational programs for participants of every business size. NACS events bring together the industry's retailers and suppliers to establish and build connections, exchange ideas and promising practices and thrive.

Last updated 4/2/2020: Our team is actively monitoring the disease situation that has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”) with direction from officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and our venue partners. After new guidance issued from the White House, and the CDC, we realize it is simply not possible, under current conditions, to execute certain events at this time and responsibly deliver the event value NACS strives for.

As a result, NACS has made the difficult decision to alter or postpone certain events: 

  • NACS Convenience Summit Asia: Postponed to March 2-4, 2021
  • NACS Convenience Summit Europe: Postponed until June 2021
  • NACS Industry Update Luncheons: Postponed until the fall
  • NACS State of the Industry Summit: Moving away from an in-person event and focusing on a virtual experience offering.
  • NACS Leadership for Success: Postponed to August 9-14, 2020

NACS is committed to planning safe events and providing guidance as it becomes available from government agencies and public health experts. Any further updates will be communicated directly to event attendees, and posted here, as they occur.
