The conference for campus innovation.
We are the business of higher education: bookstores, dining halls, campus card systems, housing, and more. This is the conference where our professional peers gather from around the world, where over 180 companies share tomorrow's solutions, and where new inspiration and ideas are discovered in over 80 educational sessions.
A Brave New World. It's time to reinvent and redefine. It's time to innovate. Whether it's your campus or your conference, everything must move forward. So in San Antonio we will introduce a new General Session format, conference schedule, live event streaming, and more. We're building a conference designed to support your campus solutions.
Where an industry gathers.
Auxiliary Services, Ancillary Services, Business Services, Campus Services. No matter what your campus calls them, they all have one thing in common: non-academic campus support. And this is the conference where we gather.
A Conference For You. Our attendees have experience in all areas of auxiliary services. Here are just a few examples!
Over 80 educational sessions built for you.
It's all about revenue generation. The mission of making sure your campus is profitable. NACAS educational sessions focus on all areas of auxiliary services, from bookstores to parking to childcare and everything in between. Hear new ideas from industry colleagues, discover new trends from business partners dedicated to your success, and find out what did and did not work on other campuses.
How do we deliver this information? In three different educational session formats designed to meet multiple learning styles: 30-minute flash sessions, 60-minute extended sessions, and 60-minute corporate connections where business partners present you with their solutions.
