CHICAGO—One of the main reasons retailers attend the NACS Show is to see new products and services. NACS makes it easier than ever to find new products on the Expo floor with the Cool New Products Preview Room.
Located in Booth 7837 in the South Building/Hall A, the Cool New Products Preview Room is based on the Show Expo and organized into five categories—Facility Operations, Foodservice, Fuel Equipment & Services, Merchandise Candy & Snacks and Technology.
Retailers get a first look at the Cool New Products Preview Room starting at 10 a.m. Tuesday. It’s open to retailers-only until 5:30 p.m. On Wednesday, retailers have exclusive access from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., then access is open to all attendees from 11:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Thursday hours are 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Friday hours are 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
A trip to the Cool New Products Preview Room offers attendees a chance to get up close and capture product and exhibitor details to create a personal shopping list. New this year: Show goers can scan their favorite Cool New Products via the official NACS Show mobile app. It automatically syncs with the My Show Planner website.
“With thousands of exhibitors, it’s nearly impossible to see everything at the Show,” said Nicole Walbe, NACS director, supplier engagement. “Cool New Products offers a snapshot of new products, trends and innovations in the industry and can be used as a ‘roadmap’ of what to look for in the expo.”
More than 250 new products, services and opportunities from across the U.S. and abroad will be featured in this year’s Cool New Products. Look for the “Top 10 Cool New Products” list that is published each day in the NACS Show Daily News.
