Finally, we are headed back, live and in person, and it feels so good! It seems like forever since we’ve walked the floors of the exhibit hall at the NACS Show, and we could not be happier to once again experience all this conference has to offer. This year, it is show time in Chi-Town and as we prepare for next week, we want to share our Top 5 Tips & Tricks to help you get the most out of your visit.
Check them out below and be to put them to good use!
Map Out Your Route
It is always good to have an idea of which booths you are hoping to visit. The NACS Show floor is pretty big, 420,000 square feet to be exact, and with over 1200 industry exhibitors, it is easy to get distracted from all the excitement. So, take a look at the Expo Map and create your own personalized path!
Set Session Reminders
Trying to fit everything you want to see and do into your schedule can be tough. If you have one or two sessions you just have to catch, we recommend setting reminders or alarms on your phone to notify you beforehand, and allow yourself plenty of time grab a seat, this way you won’t miss a single second.
These days the health and safety guidelines are constantly changing. Make sure to keep yourself up to date on the requirements that the NACS Show, and the city of Chicago have put in place. NACS has done a great job putting safety first. From extensive surface cleaning to designated masks servers, they are doing everything they can to make sure we are back together again while limiting the risks.
Don’t Forget Your Badge
Think of your badge as your Golden Ticket! This is the key to all the wonder and joy that the NACS Show has to offer. Make sure your badge is secured to its lanyard and that you always have it visible when walking into and around McCormack Place.
The most important thing to remember when attending the NACS Show is to have fun! This is the time to make new friends and build business relationships with people from all different parts of the convenience store industry. Don’t forget to head over to the MTI Booth, # 7352 for all kinds of ventless, foodservice fun!
