2021 NACS Show: Welcome to Chicago!

After 20 months of being apart, the NACS Show took place live and in person October 1-4 in Chicago. Our industry thrives when we share, collaborate and work through our challenges together, and the 17,273 who convened in Chicago agreed that there’s no better place to do that than at the NACS Show—the global event for all things convenience.

From smiling faces—behind masks—to social media posts, Show-goers shared their enthusiasm about being back together and the relationships that are a central part of our industry.

That sentiment was echoed again and again across the four days of the Show and on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, making the 2021 NACS Show the most socially connected Show ever.

The NACS Show was the largest tradeshow in the country over a 20-month period—not just convenience, not just retail but all shows—a testament to our industry’s passion for advancing convenience retail.
