The 2017 NACDS Total Store Expo got under way on Saturday with a flurry of Meet the Market and Meet the Industry events.
A pre-exhibition event, Meet the Market allows exhibitors to introduce their latest products, technology and services to the retail audience at the Total Store Expo in a series of 10-minute appointments arranged by NACDS, resulting in thousands of presentations throughout the day.
Meanwhile, a series of Meet the Industry sessions kicked off in the afternoon. Featured presenters included Day Gooch of The Vitamin Shoppe, Bill Renz of Rite Aid, Heather Mayo of Boxed Wholesale, Joe Hartsig of Walgreens, Mike Holz of Surescripts, Carlos Garcia of Facebook and Jason Osborne of Walmart.
The afternoon also saw the Supply Chain Summit, with Deloitte Consulting’s Tim Crane and Bill Kammerer, and NACDS Institute session focusing on care delivery best practices for pharmacy technicians. That led into the evening’s welcome event and NACDS Leadership Reception and Dinner.
In this NACDS-TV day-one recap of the Total Store Expo, also hear from Sumeet Singh of Five Rivers Rx, Mardell Ray of Bi-Mart, Ina Perales of H-E-B and Wayne Duan of Walgreens.
