The National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) has launched its 2012 Marketplace Conference mobile app, which provides tools for conference attendees to enhance their planning overall experience for the NACDS Marketplace Conference, to be held June 23-26 in Denver.
“NACDS utilizes cutting-edge innovations in technology to enhance efficiencies and experiences in its member programs and services,” said NACDS president and CEO Steven C.
