Why join NACS? Well, in the words of those who know...


 "I look forward to receiving my NACS newsletters and would never miss a convention, as I always come away with tips to help me improve our shows. NACS provides not only great information, but a wonderful network of other show producers and resources to help me continue to grow our shows."  - Barbara Pudney, Vice President, Paragon Group, Inc.


"The American Academy of Pediatrics recently launched its first consumer event – the Healthy Children Conference & Expo. Throughout the planning process, I’ve often referred back to lessons learned at NACS events, or called on fellow NACS members for their insights and expertise. The content and the connections have made my membership in NACS truly invaluable. I look forward to greater participation in the association in the years to come!" - Joanne M. Bonaminio, Manager, Consumer Tradeshows, American Academy of Pediatrics

 “I have been a member of various event-related associations over the years, but found that most of them focus almost exclusively on trade shows. When I joined NACS, I found an organization that focused solely on consumer shows and events. The materials presented at the conventions, the content in the newsletters, the people I network with – all are valuable resources to me as a consumer show producer. I look forward to the NACS convention every year!" - John Marriott, Motor Trend Auto Shows


 "NACS provides me with a valuable resource for face to face candid conversation, honest interaction and casual interaction with peers that produce consumer events and have experienced challenges as our company. On many occasions the information gleaned from events (and NACS resources) have saved us money and provided ideas for enhancing our event. I STRONGLY encourage anyone in our industry to join and become involved." - Bill Medved, COO, The Metropolitan Cooking & Entertaining Show
