The August launch of retail’s newest and fully integrated tradeshow and strategic exchange will feature an address by former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) announced.
The NACDS Total Store Expo will be held August 10-13, 2013, at Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev. Secretary Clinton will speak during the Business Program on the morning of Monday, August 12.
“Secretary Clinton will bring to the NACDS Total Store Expo first-hand insights on some of the most pressing issues facing the world and the nation today,” says Steven C. Anderson, IOM, CAE, president and CEO of NACDS. “Her remarks will help to deliver on a core promise, that the NACDS Total Store Expo will bring together diverse leaders who can help participants forecast the operating environment and take action together in new and exciting ways.”
The NACDS Total Store Expo has been crafted to maximize strategic dialogue among retailer and supplier personnel with diverse responsibilities. Its approach will help to identify new opportunities from the pharmacy, to every aisle of the store, to the supply chain to the implementation of technology. The end goal is to meet the needs of consumers and patients in new and dynamic ways, for example, with a truly broad approach to health and wellness.
An array of programming will complement an exhibit hall that already is 97% sold out and that will prove to feature compelling products and services for today and beyond. Author and business consultant Jim Collins joins Secretary Clinton among an array of speakers committed to the event.
