Strategic Exchange

The Annual Meeting provides numerous opportunities to meet and discuss strategic issues with key trading partners.

Strategic Exchange Appointments

Strategic Exchange Appointments, which are traditionally made in advance of your arrival, set the stage for profitable business initiatives implemented in part through future opportunities at the NACDS Total Store Expo.

Various venues at The Breakers will be used to support these important gatherings. Strategic Exchange Appointments take place in a variety of meeting spaces including Umbrella Spaces, Bungalows, Corporate Village, and Indoor Meeting Spaces. Special policies regarding reservations and use are described below. Availability is limited. Please follow the procedures in acknowledging your company’s interest.

The Annual Meeting is strategically focused and adheres to a noncommercial format. NACDS prohibits the scheduling of business or social functions during official conference events. Please read the Annual Meeting Rules and Regulations in their entirety.

Please contact Jim Whitman, Sr. Vice President of the NACDS Member Programs & Services Department, at (703) 837-4610 or if you have any questions concerning these policies.
