 History of the NACS Show


NACS has held an annual meeting every year since its founding in 1961, but it wasn’t until 1976 that the meeting included a full-scale expo, which was part of the meeting every two or three years. The addition of the expo demonstrated to suppliers that convenience stores were the channel of choice to move products.

In 1993, the annual meeting became the NACS Show. The Petroleum Marketers Association of America (PMAA) has held its Fall Meeting as part of the NACS Show since in 1995 and the Petroleum Equipment Institute (PEI) has held its annual meeting as part of the NACS Show since in 2002. In 2012, the NACS Show attracted more than 24,000 industry professionals from 65 countries — all seeking or offering the newest innovations, education and conversations about today’s important industry trends and issues.
