​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 this capacity, please refer to the Retailer Registration page.
  • 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: $1600
Associate/Broker, Non-Member Registration Fee: $2650

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: $2800

Manufacturers Rep/Broker Registration 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: $1600
Associate/Broker, Non-Member Registration Fee: $2650
