The show will feature more than 40 sessions and workshops, designed to bring independent operators up to date on the latest trends and best practices in the food retail industry and equip them with strategies to increase profits and drive the bottom line. The show’s exhibition hall will include more than 300 exhibits representing a diverse range of product categories to keep grocers updated on innovations, solutions and new products to drive customer satisfaction.
There will also be plenty of opportunities for one-on-one meetings and networking, including The VIP Experience, a customized meeting experience that allows supplier companies to connect with hand-selected grocery store owners and decision-makers. The VIP Experience format is designed to accelerate sales through face-to-face meetings in the most efficient, cost-effective way, at your booth or in one of the VIP lounges.
Additionally, The NGA Show is once again co-located with the Independent Grocers Alliance (IGA) Rally, as well as Indoor Ag-Con, the premier event covering the technology of growing crops in indoor systems, using hydroponic, aeroponic and aquaponic techniques.
