Preparations are under way for the third annual NACDS Total Store Expo, August 22-25, in Denver. See you there!
A key aspect of the upcoming NACDS Total Store Expo is preparation. As Chain Drug Review’s editor David Pinto pointed out in a recent article, “As every seasoned retailer knows, preplanning is essential to gaining the most value from the meeting.”
The innovative format at the NACDS Total Store Expo provides business partners the edge they need to collaborate productively, with an eye toward the entire store.
In order for participants to maximize all the opportunities available at the appointment-based conference, NACDS has put in place a variety of resources and tools on the NACDS Total Store Expo website so participants can come to the event ready to hit the ground running, with their advance work behind them and their ability to effectively position themselves for success ahead.
NACDS-TV provided regular updates leading up to this year’s event with insights on several features, including the highly-rated Meet the Market and Meet the Retailer programs, and an essential pre-event “Know before You Go” video. Watch a full playlist of videos and, beginning August 22, be sure and watch NACDS-TV for ongoing daily highlights from the conference.
Part of being prepared is downloading the NACDS Events app, which allows participants to personalize schedules, access up-to-date conference information, search companies, personalize schedules and more. Exhibitors can also find information about the Product Showcase, where new products are displayed on the trade show floor.
The excellent presentations at the conference include the Business Programs, where key experts provide insight on emerging issues. This year’s keynote speaker will be television journalist and author Tom Brokaw. NACDS President & CEO Steven C. Anderson said, “We look forward to hearing about his experiences in telling the news over the last several decades, as well as his more personal life lessons in battling cancer as shared in his powerful new memoir.”
Direct input from NACDS members drove the creation of the Insight Sessions at the event, featuring presentations by experts on a variety of key healthcare and front-end issues.
The innovative format at the NACDS Total Store Expo provides business partners the edge they need to collaborate productively, with an eye toward the entire store. The conference is about to start—it’s time execute plans that will deliver on the needs of consumers and pharmacy patients.
