The NAC Concession & Hospitality Expo

Refresh, Reopen and Reengage with NAC on Nov 10-12 in Dallas

About/Register


The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) will host a conference and trade show on Tuesday, November 10 through Thursday, November 12 at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. The event is designed to fill a void within the concession and hospitality channel with a reimagined educational and business to business format.

This retreat will be noticeably different than the annual NAC EXPO with a smaller footprint, tighter three-day, two-night time frame and registration fees that reflect the revised model. More details about registration, agenda, sponsorships and trade show booths will be released in the days and weeks ahead.

Registration is now open! Registration for ReTreat and any Optional Programs will only be offered On-Line or by calling us at 312.236.3858. Hotel accommodations are available and must be arranged separately. Use the Hotel link on this page.

Unsolicited Dallas Room Phone Call Scam
NAC members and exhibitors may receive unsolicited phone calls from companies stating that they can provide you cheaper rooms than we can in Dallas for The NAC ReTreat. Please be aware that these individuals and companies are known to scam clients by getting credit card numbers and pertinent information that can be used in nefarious ways. You are receiving the most affordable rate at Hyatt Regency while also supporting NAC. DO NOT PROVIDE THESE CALLERS ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION AND PLEASE REPORT THEM TO US AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO THAT WE CAN PROVIDE THEM A CEASE AND DESIST LETTER.
