With an agenda featuring more than a dozen speakers from the convenience store industry’s leading chains, NAG 2017 is one industry conference you cannot afford to miss. Register by August 18 to take advantage of Early Bird pricing to receive a discount off the registration fee.

The convenience store industry continues to grow sales at record numbers, but the stakes have never been higher as convenience store owners face competition from multiple retail channels. As challenges increase across the board, savvy retailers are learning to trim costs from their operations, developing leaner, more efficient top quartile businesses.

The National Advisory Group (NAG) has been working overtime to create an environment where small, mid-sized and family-owned retailers can interact with each other and share ideas for reducing operating costs and increasing sales. The proof can be found in our world-class educational lineup for the 2017 NAG Conference.
