This is an executive-level event designed to help highway fuel retailers gain insight into how trends are likely to affect their operating environment. Expert speakers kick things off by presenting information - but it is the interaction among the power players in the audience that turns information into actionable insights. We keep the attendee list small, design robust group discussions, and build in ample time for discussion among the entire group. Who’s Invited? We invite top-tier highway fuel retail industry executives and suppliers. These include NATSO’s board of directors, the NATSO foundation board of directors, and leaders from other NATSO members and top suppliers. What’s the dress code? Casual attire is appropriate for all events. How can I book a hotel room? Please book your room at the host hotel, the Renaissance Nashville, online. Where is the event? What airport is nearby?
