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 8/12/2020: 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 Show: The 2020 NACS Show, scheduled for October 11-14 inside the Las Vegas Convention Center, has been canceled due to the current State of Nevada virus mitigation mandate limiting group gatherings to 50 people or less. NACS will be directly communicating to registered attendees no later than August 7 to quickly facilitate full refunds for the event.
