It’s that time of year again, the high speed ovens are humming, e-cigarette coils are being charged and energy drinks are being carbonated. All that can only mean one thing: the 2017 NACS show is right around the corner! If you’re in the convenience store segment and not heard of the NACS show, I’m pretty sure you must live under a rock! NACS is the largest gathering of the cstore channel, bringing together thousands of folks who eat, breathe and live in the convenience segment. We’ll be attending the NACS show for our fifth year and we hope to see you there! Still on the fence about attending? Let’s talk about the show in today’s blog and see if we can’t convince you to attend!
Never been to NACS?
The NACS show brings together buyers and sellers for the cstore industry from around the world. Taking place over the course of four days, NACS is filled with new product launches, educational sessions, fun events and a huge trade show scene. How huge? 400,000 sq. ft. huge!! And if that sounds overwhelming, you should know the expo is broken down into six categories: Fuel Equipment & Services, Food Equipment & Foodservice Programs, Candy/Snacks, Facility Development & Store Operations, Merchandise and Technology. So you can totally pick and choose which areas to see and what to skip! Attendees come to discover new trends, products and strategies to help them increase sales, gain new customers and improve their bottom line. Last year nearly 24,000 people attended the NACS show, so you can be sure you’ll have the chance to network with the right people in your industry.
Why do you attend?
Here at MTI, we're huge fans of the convenience channel. If you read about the cstore industry at all, you know that foodservice is really on the rise and we're happy to help facilitate that transition. The switch from microwaves and roller grills, to fresh fried foods and fast baked subs and pizzas doesn't have to be a hard one! We're here to make the switch painless and immediatly profitable for your business, which is why attending NACS is such a great show for us.
From the easiest frying equipment you’ll ever come in contact with, to our high speed oven boasting the throughput advantage, our ventless lineup is PERFECT for convenience retailers. Cstore owners and operators love the ease of use and versatility our products offer, plus with our unique ventless operation, we make foodservice convenient and affordable. Since foodservice is one of the few areas of sales that shows consistent growth within the cstore industry, our booth is definitely one to check out!
Where can we find you?
We’ll be showing off our equipment with free product demos, food tastings and more at booth 6541 in South Building. You can find a map of the event here.
So will we see you at the NACS Show?
We hope so! If you’d like to schedule a time to meet one on one with one of our sales representatives, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
