Health & Safety Policy

(Updated June 13, 2022)

NACDS’ priority is to conduct the Total Store Expo (TSE) in a manner consistent with the health and safety of our attendees and industry partners. Our goal is to hold TSE in accordance with federal, state, and local regulations and recommendations applicable at the time of the event, as well as what NACDS deems is appropriate.  NACDS reserves the right to change, update, or add to these guidelines at any time as it deems prudent to best protect the health and safety of TSE attendees.  As such, attendees will be required to comply with relevant policies and requirements as communicated by NACDS.

  • Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required and verified before you will be allowed to receive your registration credentials.
  • If you are not fully vaccinated, you will be required to provide a negative PCR COVID-19 test result taken 48 hours prior to the date of when you pick up your meeting credentials at registration.

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.”
