A European education

In 2019, NACS—the association dedicated to advancing convenience and fuel retailing—is bringing successful innovations in convenience retailing to two exciting European markets. Join your global colleagues 5-7 June, when convenience and fuel retailing industry professionals from around the world will gather in London, England, for knowledge and networking, and the opportunity to discover new ideas from retail store tours.

The NACS Convenience Summit Europe is the main “must-attend event” for the European and international industry with retailer roundtables, international best practice presentations on key trends/developments in the global industry, case studies from top-performing retailers and our famous awards night programme. You’ll discover what’s working and what isn’t in your market. You’ll also find new ideas, products and solutions that are addressing the challenges and opportunities of today, tomorrow and 10 to 20 years down the road. No other event brings together convenience leaders in store operations, marketing innovations, retail design, fuel delivery and other key retail areas in such an intimate and open setting.

From there, attendees have the option to travel to Amsterdam, The Netherlands 9-11 June for NACS Market Tours Europe. Designed to provide a closer-look into retail operations and solutions, as well as a deep dive into discussion-based learning, store tours are led by convenience industry experts, who will immerse you in leading retail environments. You’ll see the products, payments solutions and purchasing paths that can turn your operation into a true destination shopping experience, increasing first-time visits and delivering loyal repeat customers.
