One of the most popular elements of the NACDS Annual Meeting is Meet the Retailer.

The brief sessions provide an opportunity for suppliers to meet with executives from drug, mass and other retailers. The retailer presentations typically include an overview of company, how they use Annual Meeting to conduct business, topics to discuss with suppliers and a question-and-answer period.

Held last Saturday, the 2017 NACDS Annual Meeting’s Meet the Retailer sessions featured executives from CVS Health, Walgreens, Fred’s Pharmacy, Sam’s Club, Cardinal Health and The Vitamin Shoppe.

“During the NACDS Annual Meeting this week, one of the often-discussed trends was the need for retailers and supplier partners to collaborate for a truly positive shopping experience — one that makes consumers enjoy and value their time in the store,” NACDS president and CEO Steve Anderson wrote in a post on the association’s website. “I thought a lot about the extent to which NACDS focuses on reflecting the chain and associate membership in this regard. Members tell us often that NACDS meetings and conferences create highly positive experiences that make them uniquely desirable and effective venues for advancing one’s business.”
