NACS Convenience Summit Europe Postponed
For NACS, taking care of the global convenience community is of highest priority. As coronavirus (COVID-19) rapidly spreads across the globe and continues to impact communities, NACS has been vigilantly monitoring and adopting recommendations from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and local and national health authorities.
Given the escalation of travel restrictions, guidance on social distancing, and the lock-down of many communities and borders, NACS has decided to postpone this year’s NACS Convenience Summit Europe scheduled for 2-4 June, Berlin, Germany.
Henry O. Armour, Ph.D., president and CEO of NACS, shared the decision in a letter to attendees, stating:
“Every year, I look forward to the high-quality networking and provocative thought-leadership content this event provides to the European convenience retailing community. There are few events of this caliber that allow us to share our vision for the future that we’re building together.”
He added, “And while I was particularly excited about hosting this year’s Summit in Berlin, it is simply not possible to deliver the value we all expect at NACS Convenience Summit Europe in a responsible way under the current public health circumstances.”
