Why Attend

The NACDS Annual Meeting is the industry’s most prestigious gathering of its most influential leaders. It is the classic “Top-to-Top” business conference, attended by industry decision makers.

It will give you and your company a unique opportunity to gain new insights into today’s changing marketplace and set your course for the future. Participation is restricted to executives from NACDS member companies and their spouses/companions.

The Annual Meeting format includes two formal business programs featuring business experts, industry panels, and renowned speakers. These sessions are followed by “strategic exchange appointments” (meetings) between retailers and associate members in the designated “strategic exchange spaces” (meeting umbrellas and cabanas), private meeting rooms, or other designated meeting spaces located throughout the hotel.
