There's danger on the show floor!

We spent last week at NACS in Atlanta - a dangerous show if you are on a diet! Exhibitors at The National Association of Convenience Stores went all out with breathtaking exhibits, fantastic content and mouth-watering samples. Haribo had a mind blowing watermelon sculptor creating art right there in the booth while Red Bull was setting the party scene with a live DJ and video games.
