San Diego selected to be the future home to annual conference in 2019 and 2020
ARLINGTON, VA – Today, the National Grocers Association (NGA) announced that the 2019 NGA Show will be held in San Diego, California on February 24 – 27, 2019 and February 23 – 26, 2020. This move in location is directly in response to the need for a larger convention space to meet the growth in exhibitor and participant attendance and reflects the continued growth of NGA, which has doubled its membership in the past five years.
“We are very enthusiastic about the future of The NGA Show as well as the independent supermarket industry, and San Diego an exciting destination to match that sentiment. As we continue to expand we look forward to working with our Show partners to deliver value to attendees and make this a memorable conference,” said NGA President and CEO Peter J. Larkin.
With more than 35 educational sessions and workshops, the Show offers an unparalleled chance to catch up on industry issues, trends, and developments. Education seminars, roundtable discussions, and partner exhibits are all geared to provide attendees with the latest information that they can take home and implement in their businesses.
“Over the past five years, the interest shown by our trading partners has been tremendous, creating the need for a larger Expo floor,” said Matt Ott, chief operating officer, NGA. “We look forward to expanding and diversifying exhibitors on the Expo floor to provide attendees with multiple opportunities to view and research new products and services for their business. The NGA Show brings together independent retailers and wholesalers, food retail industry executives, CPG manufacturers and service providers, truly making it the place for independent grocers to gather and network.”
For over 30 years, The NGA Show has been the place where independents gather, connecting grocery retailers and wholesalers, food manufacturers and service providers from around the world to share innovative solutions and best practices that support and strengthen the independent supermarket channel.
