Each NACS Show registration includes access to the expo as well as access to the more than 45+ education sessions.

To help guide your session selections, NACS developed three segments: launchers, experimenters and transformers.  You can see all the education sessions and sort them by category here.

“The segments were designed to give attendees an idea of what to expect from a session. If you want how-to’s and best practices, go to launcher sessions. If you’re looking for new ideas on something your organization is already tackling, attend experimenter sessions. And, if you are interested in thought leadership looking to the future and at the trends in other industries, attend transformer sessions,” explained Jenna Collard, director, education engagement, NACS.

The segment you choose may not be the same across all topics—in some areas you might be searching for how-to’s and best practices and on other topics you could be seeking inspirational, forward-thinking thought leadership.

"Our speaker lineup this year is a powerhouse of industry leaders eager to share their experiences, driving our industry towards the future while embodying the NACS Show theme of 'Winning Together,' said Brandi Mauro, executive education program manager, NACS. “Go for the ones that truly light up your interests and align with your goals. The best sessions aren't always the most popular; they're the ones that leave you inspired and thinking long after they're done.”

NACS offers two digital tools to maximize your on-site experience: My Show Planner and the NACS Show mobile app. You can research the events you would like to attend, create a personal agenda, and then export it to your calendar. The app syncs with your customized schedule—so you only need to plan once. Stay on top of events, explore your saved education sessions and exhibitor visits and navigate the expo floor on-site using the interactive map feature.
