The NACS Show is the convenience and fuel retailing’s premier industry event and this year, it took place in beautiful Las Vegas, NV. Both buyers and sellers from around the world attend the NACS Show to conduct business and network with others from the convenience and fuel retailing industries- as well as discuss new ideas and partnerships. Members of the GreenPrint team are frequent to NACS events, as GreenPrint’s CEO, Pete Davis, recently attended and spoke at the NACS Convenience CEO Forum in Hamburg, Germany. A few members of the GreenPrint team participated in the NACS Show in Las Vegas this year.
The NACS Show expo is segmented into six different categories: Fuel Equipment & Services, Food Equipment & Foodservice Programs, Candy/Snacks, Facility Development & Store Operations, Merchandise, and Technology- all including an unforgettable hands-on experience. The NACS Show also offered attendees an innovative, futuristic experience with the Cool New Products Preview Room, which housed new innovations, products, services, and growth opportunities for all that step inside. Within this room, attendees were able to easily locate new products, capture product details, access retailer info, and even print a custom shopping list.
Aside from the networking and product discovery opportunities presented at the NACS Show, over 60 education sessions designed by fellow industry peers were available and open to attendees. The education sessions included topics ranging from Promotions that Work, to Innovating Like a Startup, to Supplier Sessions. The goal was for leaders in the retailing and technology industries to remain on top of the newest tips and trends in order to grow their business and position themselves for new opportunities. “The NACS Show was a great opportunity to network with other people in the fuel retail sector, allowing me to feel more integrated into our professional community. Also, the educational sessions gave me the chance to learn from inspirational individuals about the challenges in our field,” said Amanda Kardosh, GreenPrint’s Business Development Director.
GreenPrint attended the NACS Show because each day they work with clients both in the retailer fuel and fleet industries. Remaining knowledgeable on current industry trends, creating new relationships, as well as strengthening long-term relationships in an ever-changing economy are of utmost importance to the GreenPrint team, which is why attendance to the NACS Show is a must. “The NACS show is a good moment to put a face with the name. In a digital world, it is so important to have this chance to meet our customers and partners in person and share new ideas,” said Kardosh. “It is also a great opportunity to network with companies from different parts of the world. For instance, I had the honor to meet the marketing team of the most important fuel retail company from Brazil and present GreenPrint`s solution to them.”
The GreenPrint team returned, stating that an incredible amount of sharing, learning, and leveraging can happen at NACS. “It was a unique opportunity to expose solutions and share ideas, and connect with people from all over the globe,” said Kardosh.
