The NACDS Total Store Expo is the industry’s largest gathering of its most influential leaders. It is a combination of both strategic and tactical business meetings between existing and new trading partners and is attended by industry decision makers.

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 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.


Registration is COMPLIMENTARY for all qualifying Retailers.


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

I’ve attended every Total Store Expo since its inception. TSE is a great platform to launch and introduce new items as well as have very productive meetings with our retail and vendor partners. At E & J Gallo Winery, we find the show to be as valuable as Annual.”
