Brand new NAC website effective Thursday, Sept. 12
The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) announced that a brand new website with a clean and modern look will debut on Thursday, Sept. 12. The transition is expected to take place on Thursday evening and may take several hours. During this transition, the website and email service to NAC will be unavailable. The new NAC digital portal will be exceedingly member-friendly while also having the ability to be updated almost instantaneously with information that is most important to NAC members and non-members alike.

By the end of the year, the site will also have a searchable Membership Directory that will allow NAC members direct access to the website of fellow members via specific concession categories. The digital directory will be an updated version of the annual printed directory now exclusively available in the spring edition of Concession Profession. The new site will also provide immediate registration capabilities for all NAC educational activities. The current NAC website has served its purpose for many years but is obviously generations behind what we all now expect in our daily informational needs.

The investment in a new NAC website is possible only because of the continued support of the NAC members and generous sponsors.

Current website sponsors are: Coca-Cola, Nestle, Pepsi, CCSI, ConAgra, Cretors, Eisenberg, Gold Medal, Hershey's, Kernel Season's, Odell's, Ovations, Promotion in Motion, Weaver Popcorn, The Proctor Company, ReactorNet, Ricos, Sodexo and Ventura.
