ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- NACS, the Association for Convenience & Fuel Retailing, launched a new mobile application (app) specifically for its THE Tech EVENT, which will take place from May 6-10 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas.
The app is intended to help attendees easily navigate the event and is compatible with most smartphone and tablet devices.
This marks the first year of THE Tech EVENT, which combines the former NACStech and PCATS Winter Meeting conferences. The trade show will deliver technology education, information and solutions on topics including "Big Data," HTML5, data security, mobile payments and the future of technology innovation.
