CAMEX has a long history of being the campus retailing industry's meeting place. For more than 90 years, volunteers and staff of the National Association of College Stores (NACS) have worked together to create and grow this leading industry event. Today CAMEX is the industry's largest trade show and educational event attracting more than 2,100 qualified buyers from more than 1,060 campus stores as well as 750+ exhibiting companies.
Until recently, the opportunity to have a celebrity attend an event, attach themselves to a name-brand or endorse a certain product or idea was untouchable. The thought of paying a person to promote a product was seen as something only Fortune 500 companies could afford. Social media has changed all that with brands and businesses utilizing celebrity influencers to connect directly with their demographics and increase sales and profits.
