The NACDS Total Store Expo is the industry’s largest gathering of its most influential leaders. It will give you and your company a unique opportunity to gain new insights into today’s evolving marketplace and set your course for the future.


The NACDS Total Store Expo is a one of a kind opportunity for retailers and their suppliers to gather to create a new dialogue that will drive not only the top line, but also operational efficiencies. By coming together across multiple functions and encompassing all products and categories available in your stores, attendees will gain new insights into your own business as well as across your company.


The NACDS Total Store Expo allows you to maximize selling opportunities to retailers while getting the most out of your trade show investment. Included in your booth fee is the highly acclaimed Meet the Market, a value-added program open to new exhibitors and past exhibitors with new products and services. This opportunity guarantees appointments with key retail buyers in your category through a series of 10-minute pre-set meetings on the day prior to the opening of the exhibit hall.

TSE is a huge value for us! It's a great opportunity for us to see our manufacturers and see some of not only our reps but some of the other people within their organization. I get to go back to my office with a whole bunch of to-dos, so I’m building the rest of my end-of-the-year plan right now.

This is a great conference. There is such a diverse group of companies present, from technology to pharma, merchandising, etc. It’s a great experience, and a very nice business networking opportunity.

The biggest success is when the buyer invites you back to their headquarters for sort of the next meeting, to let us discuss how to come into their store to learn about their programs and really learn how to get on their shelf.
