Exhibitor Registration

The NACDS Total Store Expo is an exhibits-based trade show. Only full-time employees (not third parties or business partners) of exhibiting companies are eligible to register to attend.

​Registration Fees

All manufacturer, supplier, services, sales and marketing, and consulting companies must have their own booth space in order to attend. Booth space fees include one complimentary registration per 100 square feet. Additional registrants are required to register at the appropriate individual fee.

Associate/Exhibitor, Member: $1500
Associate/Exhibitor, Non-Member: $2550

Complimentary Spouse/Companion registration is available and includes participation in all official NACDS receptions, the Total Store Expo Extravaganza, and the Business Program(s). Spouse/Companions will not be given access to the Exhibit Hall. Spouse/Companions assisting in booths must purchase a full registration badge.

Registration Policy

(As of January 13, 2022)

For the health and safety of everyone, NACDS will require that all Total Store Expo attendees be fully vaccinated and wear a mask when appropriate. NACDS has partnered with HealthShield by 42Chat to collect vaccination proof and store it privately. Each registrant must complete the NACDS Vaccination Verification Form and provide a mobile number, and that of their spouse/companion if attending. This form will be sent directly to all registrants at a later date. Following the completion of this form, registrants will receive a text message to the mobile phone number(s) provided with instructions on submitting your proof of vaccination. Failure to provide this information will prevent your attendance at the 2022 NACDS Total Store Expo.

*Medical Exceptions
If you are unable to be fully vaccinated due to a medical exception, then you will only be able to attend if you provide proof of a negative COVID test taken 48 hours prior to picking up your meeting credentials at the conference AND wear a properly fitting face covering that covers your nose and mouth at all times during the conference, except when you are eating or drinking. Any unvaccinated person who does not wear a mask will surrender their right to remain at the conference. Please contact Mary Medawar at mmedawar@nacds.org for instructions on submitting your negative COVID test.

NACDS reserves the right to alter, modify, and/or limit registration to the Total Store Expo based on government regulations and/or recommendations made by public health officials concerning health and safety. Any such changes will be communicated to registered attendees.

​Associate / Purchasing

The Associate Purchasing registration is intended for employees of non-retail companies attending the conference in a purchasing capacity.

  • If you are attending in a sales capacity, please complete the Associate/Supplier/Exhibitor Registration Form.

​Associate/Broker (Manufacturer’s Representative)

NACDS defines “manufacturer agents, brokers, and sales and marketing companies” as non-full-time employees, individuals and/or entities engaged and remunerated by more than one company to assist/consult in these companies’ sales, marketing and/or management efforts. Further, they do not take ownership of, or bill for, any products for resale or operations. NACDS reserves the right to render final and binding decisions as to qualification in this category for registration purposes. While we would prefer that Manufacturer Representatives take full advantage of the event as an exhibitor, your company may elect to register by one of the following three methods:

Purchase A Booth:

Exhibiting companies receive full show privileges, including Meet the Market. Your company badges will reflect your company’s name. To purchase a Booth, visit the Booth Information page under Exhibitors.

Associate/Broker, Member Registration Fee: $1500
Associate/Broker, Non-Member Registration Fee: $2550

NACDS Member Companies:

If your company is a member of NACDS, you may register under your own company name. Your company badges will reflect your company’s name. Meet the Market is not included. Please email registration@nacds.org to inquire about your company’s eligibility.

Associate/Broker, Member Registration Fee: $2700

​Associate/Broker Form


Register as an attendee under an exhibiting company you represent at the show. Your company badges will reflect the exhibiting company’s name, not your own company’s name. Meet the Market is not included.

If electing this method, contact the exhibiting company’s booth coordinator and request their exhibitor registration password. YOU MUST REGISTER AS A PAID REGISTRANT. Use of the exhibiting company’s “complimentary badge allotment” is not allowed.

Associate/Broker, Member Registration Fee: $1500
Associate/Broker, Non-Member Registration Fee: $2550
