As the Total Store Expo draws near, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores has put together a checklist to help industry members gear up for a successful event.
TSE, which marks a new concept for trading partners, will combine the Marketplace Conference, the Pharmacy and Technology Conference and the Supply Chain and Logistics Conference into one mega trade show held Aug. 10 to 13 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas.
"It is going to allow for multiple conversations just having supply, front end or consumer goods, and pharmacy and technology there. In one conversation you can actually address all four of those areas," said Jim Whitman, SVP member programs and services at NACDS. "We're excited that so many people [are] joining us in what we really believe will be a very innovative way of doing business as we move forward."
At press time, TSE was nearly 90% sold out with more than 40 first-time companies.
