NACS State of the Industry Summit

The NACS State of the Industry Summit is the authority for data and insights into the fast-paced and constantly changing convenience and fuel retailing industry.

This is the only event of the year where retailers gain the most comprehensive industry financial and operational metrics and consumer shopping behavior insights. Industry experts help break down what the numbers mean for your business, and share opportunities for meeting the challenges of the current economic climate.

Retailers attending the Summit are the first to learn:

  • Industry performance metrics and category insights. In-depth analysis on the opportunities and watch-outs for retailers going forward, including key category performance and trends.
  • How top performers stand above the rest. Insider knowledge about how the top performers continue to grow their business and areas to enhance your own company's performance.
  • How consumers drive the convenience retail model. Drive sales and profits using exclusive NACS data on consumer shopping behavior that tracks the path to purchase at convenience stores.

First to Know, First to Take Action
For 45 years, NACS has produced the most comprehensive review of industry metrics in its annual NACS State of the Industry Report. Summit attendees benefit from the first look at the exclusive information and resulting analysis contained in the report — the only benchmarking publication for the U.S. convenience and fuel retailing industry.

Powerful On-Site Connections
Face-to-face interactions create relationships that are critical to building and maintaining our industry as the preferred retail channel of trade. Numerous networking opportunities give Summit attendees a chance to share their best practices and insights, creating a stronger convenience industry for all. These conversations are valuable to both retailers and suppliers who want to gain a better understanding of this dynamic industry.

Who’s Attending
The NACS State of the Industry Summit draws convenience and fuel retailing industry leaders from across the country who are interested in learning what the top performers are doing to grow their businesses. See who joined us last year.
