New NACS App Keeps Industry Connected at NACStech
More than 1,200 attendees are expected at this year's NACStech, which will take place May 21-23 in Nashville, Tenn. The event will feature two general sessions, the annual concurrent PCATS/Convenience Store News CIO Roundtable sessions, more than a dozen focused workshops and 100 exhibits. For the third consecutive year, CSNews is the exclusive media sponsor for NACStech.

NACStech educational sessions will cover topics including technology project management; benchmarking data; mobile couponing and payment; mobile, social and loyalty marketing; payment platform standards; point-of-sale (POS) trends; data mining; PCI network design; and item-level inventory.
The NACStech expo will feature POS systems, fuel equipment, automation consultants, cash-handling systems, software vendors, electronic displays, kiosks, knowledge management, loyalty programs, mobile applications, personnel software systems, security services, card processing systems, training services, and wireless and networking services.
