When a show brings the nation’s top buyers and sellers under one roof, offers them informative sessions that address all of the pressing issues impacting them, and provides the perfect environment for conducting business, then it is considered well worth the time and investment. The NATO Show has done just that, year after year.

By exhibiting at the 2016 show, you will be able to:

● Conduct business with the nation’s top tobacco and OTP retailers and wholesalers. NATO’s passionate commitment to protecting the interests of all tobacco retailers for the last decade has earned the respect of 7-11, Smoker Friendly, The Pantry and Speedway in addition to wholesalers/ distributors such as Core-Mark International and McLane Company, who attend the show each year.

● Stay informed about the industry’s top regulatory headlines and must-know information revolving around sales trends, FDA regulations and their enforcement. Learn how these issues are impacting tobacco retailers and their buying habits.

● Support the show that supports you! NATO is the only national retail trade association that specializes exclusively in tobacco issues on the local, state and federal level.

To qualify for the Member rate, the applicant must be a current NATO Member for the duration of the NATO Show (through April 22, 2016). If you are not a NATO member and wish to join, visit www.NATOCentral.org and click on Join NATO.  For further information about membership, please call 866-869-8888.

How Booth Space Is Assigned

Booth assignments for the NATO Show are confirmed by appointment only. The order of appointments for priority placement is based on a variety of factors including NATO membership status, current and historical financial support, exhibit history, number of booths purchased and proximity to competitors.

Once priority placements have been made, space is sold on a first-received, first-assigned basis. No assignment, guarantee of specific space, or “holding” of space will be made until a completed Exhibit Space Application and the booth fee are received. When booth space has been assigned, the NATO Show will send an email confirmation of space to the trade show contact listed on the application. Please allow 10 business days after the date of receipt for confirmation of booth assignment.
