For the second year, NATSO is partnering with Insight to offer NATSO members a phenomenal learning trip to Europe. This year's International Study Tour, Sept. 24 - 28, begins in Oslo, Norway, with hosted retail study tours, transitions to the ‘Future of Convenience’ conference and exhibition in London and ends with an optional trip to Paris for a day of hosted retail visits.
This unique event offers convenience and fuel retailers from around the world a unique look into best practices in the advanced European market. The program combines presentations, exhibitions, video interviews and store visits to the most innovative retail and petroleum formats.
In addition, this year Darren Schulte, NATSO’s new vice president of membership, will join the study tour! This is a great opportunity to learn in person from Darren's retail expertise. Darren has nearly three decades of experience in truckstop and travel plaza operations and merchandising, most recently as the vice president for retail merchandising for TSC Global/Barjan LLC. Attendees on the study tour will have the invaluable opportunity to discuss and dissect specific product presentations, store layout and designs, product and customer flow, and more with Darren in person in Europe.
