2024 NASM Conference & Industry Summit

September 11th-13th, 2024

The NASM Conference and Industry Summit brings together Shell-branded Wholesale Marketers from across the country for three days of networking and learning. Together with industry leaders and Shell representatives, NASM members will experience the luxury of The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa — a Forbes Travel Guide four-star property.

Location

Houston, Texas

Join us in Houston, Texas for the 2024 NASM Conference & Industry Summit. Known for NASA’s Johnson Space Center and it’s proximity to Galveston Bay, Houston is often nicknamed the “Bayou City” or “Space City”. However, most NASM members know it as the home of Shell – the brand they all have chosen to represent.
