Your CAMEX Experience

Night at the Aquarium

Formerly the closing event on Monday, it’s now on Sunday, March 6, to make it easier on your CAMEX schedule. Join the NACS subsidiaries for an evening at the Aquarium—an opportunity for light food, fun, and good company. Get your ticket pack at the event to enter for a chance to win a gift basket or an iPad Air at the subsidiaries' booths during trade show days. (This event is included in CAMEX/CCRA Value and First Timer Registrations. No additional tickets will be sold due to space limitations. CAMEX badge required for entry.)

CAMEX Connect (formerly CAMEX Daily Planner)

CAMEX Connect is the new source for planning your CAMEX Experience. Once registered, you can login to add sessions, booths, and see Who’s Registered. In January, sync your Schedule with the CAMEX Mobile App, sponsored by Case Logic. New this year: Match your product category interests to exhibiting companies, and schedule appointments with exhibitors!
