    Look who’s exhibiting at this year’s Southern Convenience Store & Petroleum Show

    With little more than a month to show date, the Southern Show is proving once again to be a sellout. According to Tradeshow Co-Chair Chris Tiller, Flash Foods, “we are well above last year’s booth sales compared to the same time frame as the 2013 show. This indicates that retailer attendance should be high as well.” The Georgia convenience store market is roughly a $30 billion industry. Boasting over 5,600 stores in the market serving an average of 1,135 customers a day, we are a very viable industry in which to sell goods and services to consumers.

    As the industry changes and looks to increase inside sales, many c-stores are increasing their “fresh offer” by updating their food service programs as well as their grab-n-go products. Matt McGhee, Neighbors Express, who shares the Co-Chair responsibility with Tiller states, “we’ve seen a recent increase in our foodservice sales and hope to find new innovative & fresh opportunities at the Southern Show. We’ve made a focus this year to recruit new foodservice vendors since all retailers are trying to increase their inside offer.”

    As well as foodservice, other exhibitors in attendance include beverages, snacks, fuel & petroleum, energy services and a plethora of brokers that represent many lines of goods and services.

    Exhibitors, Beware!

    Recently, Oil Express, ran an article advising that travel companies are contacting exhibitors that participate in several Southeast tradeshows.  To date, GACS is not aware of any contact with our exhibitors.  Should you be contacted by a travel service to secure your hotel in Macon, that service HAS NOT been endorsed by GACS.

    Please note, that while NACS does use a  housing company, GACS DOES NOT utilize a travel/housing company to secure hotel rooms for the Macon area.  We suggest contacting the Macon Marriott directly at 478-621-5300 or using this link to secure a hotel room adjacent to the Macon Centreplex.  Otherwise, we suggest contacting any other hotels directly.
