Thompson Square to Headline Chairman's Dinner & Gala
Double-platinum recording artists Thompson Square have been selected to perform at the Chairman's Dinner and Gala during the 2014 NGA Show! Thompson Square, country music's biggest breakout act of the last few years, is the performing duo of husband-and-wife Keifer and Shawna Thompson.
They have earned over 25 awards show nominations - including two GRAMMY as well as American Music Award and Teen Choice nods - and made music history when they received awards from both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) and Country Music Awards for "Vocal Duo of the Year' in 2012. Thompson Square was awarded its second consecutive ACM Award for Vocal Duo of the Year in April 2013.
Bob Woodward to Kick Off 2014 NGA Show!
Bob Woodward, famed Washington Post journalist, author, and Watergate scandal reporter, has been selected to kick off the 2014 Opening General Session, sponsored by Kraft.
Called "possibly the best reporter of all time", Woodward has penned 17 best-selling books on top of his Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of Watergate and the September 11, 2001 attacks.
The 2013 show was one of the largest in NGA history, with over 2,700 in attendance including retailers, wholesalers and industry partners. The NGA EXPO Floor sold out in record time, bringing independent grocers together with manufacturers of a wide variety of products and solutions.
The NGA Show is the place "where independents gather"
, so this is an event you won't want to miss!
