Arlington, Va. – With one month until the 2015 NACDS Total Store Expo kicks off in Denver, Colorado, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) announced that the Exhibit Hall is sold out. The NACDS Total Store Expo will take place August 22-25 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
“The one thing that matters most at the NACDS Total Store Expo is the strong engagement of retailers and suppliers, and that strong engagement is aligning again to create another exceptional opportunity for participants at the 2015 event,” said NACDS President and CEO Steven C. Anderson, IOM, CAE. “The industry’s enthusiasm and support for this event are greatly appreciated. The focus now is on fostering the preparation by each participant, to help create a successful and productive experience for retailers and exhibitors.
“Now in its third year, the NACDS Total Store has proven effective in bringing together retailers – across all departments and categories – with the right suppliers to develop business opportunities that extend long after the four-day show,” said Anderson.
While the exhibit space is sold out, online registration is still open for retail and supplier companies that may wish to send additional members of their team to the trade show. A wait list also is available for those still interested in exhibiting should space become available.
The programming and business opportunities at the NACDS Total Store Expo are uniquely tailored to the needs of attendees and their businesses, making it a show that is not-to-be-missed.
