-- An appointment-based trade show, the NACDS Total Store Expo is designed to meet the needs of companies of all sizes. The show seeks to maximize opportunities and value for retailers and suppliers over a short period of time, and offers new insights in today’s evolving marketplace, providing a roadmap for the future of their businesses.
The key to success: Plan Ahead.
Designed for exhibitors of the NACDS Total Store Expo by members of the NACDS Retail Advisory Board, the NACDS Total Store Expo Guide to Success provides valuable information and tips on how to prepare for and “work” the evolutionary trade show.
Tips on how to plan for meetings with current and potential trading partners and best practices to make the meetings more successful are included in the “Advance Tips” and “Total Store Expo Appointment Tips” sections of the guide.
The guide’s feature “A Look at Your Day” provides exhibitors with programming information and helpful tips for each day of the trade show.
“Fully utilizing the NACDS Total Store Expo Guide to Success can help make business meetings during the trade show more meaningful,” said NACDS Senior Vice President of Member Programs and Services Jim Whitman. “The NACDS Total Store Expo brings together industry partners across departments and functions with an eye towards the entire store, so it’s important to put a plan in place that fosters results that extend far beyond the four-day trade show to help companies chart their course of business in the months and years to come.”
