ALEXANDRIA, Va. — On the heels of many spring and summer events being cancelled as cautions against the coronavirus pandemic, NACS announced this week that the 2020 NACS Show is moving forward as scheduled. The event is scheduled to take place Oct. 11-14 in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Show registration and housing for the event opened this week at nacsshow.com.
NACS and the event’s supporting partner organizations—PEI, PMAA and Conexxus—are working with local, state and federal agencies, health officials and venue partners to ensure attendees' well-being, the association said. They also have extended the cancellation policy to 30 days pre-event to offer registered attendees additional flexibility. As public health guidance is updated, any changes to the delivery of content and experience at the 2020 NACS Show will be shared with registrants and exhibitors immediately, it said.
“The NACS Show is still a number of months away, but our preparedness plans are evolving daily in light of new guidance on COVID-19. Our team is taking precautions and proactively running contingency scenarios to guarantee we deliver the same high-quality networking, access to new products and thought leadership you’ve come to expect without jeopardizing anyone’s well-being,” said NACS President and CEO Henry Armour.
“We’ve heard positive stories about how our industry has innovated to adapt to quickly changing times. We’re looking forward to continuing this momentum in October by showcasing new ideas, products, technologies and innovations to help deliver the future of convenience,” said Armour.
NACS, the global trade association dedicated to advancing convenience and fuel retailing, serves as an advisor to more than 1,500 retailer and 1,600 supplier members from more than 50 countries.
