Three Things to See at the NGA Executive Conference
We are excited to announce that we will be kicking off the coming conference season in person at the NGA Executive Conference on September 18th and 19th, 2021, in Las Vegas, Nevada. This high-impact conference is designed for CEOs and their leadership teams to increase profitability and enhance business opportunities. The NGA show schedule of events offers a dynamic program of current topic discussions mixed with ample networking opportunities that we are excited to be a part of.
Out of the numerous topics discussed during the show, here are our top 3 picks for what you can’t afford to miss.
Supermarket Sustainability: How To Resonate With Shoppers
The COVID-19 pandemic has not diminished shopper passion for sustainability. On the contrary, sustainability is one of the few priorities on which most Americans agree on. And as supermarkets have become even more central to people’s lives over the past year, shoppers expect grocery retailers to lead the way when it comes to protecting the environment and local communities. Most consumers are willing to travel an additional five to 10 minutes to visit a store they believe has a stronger impact. This session will reveal these and other findings of the most recent study from the Coca-Cola Retailing Research Council of North America: “Sustainability and Food Retailing.” Council members will share shoppers’ sustainability priorities by generation, demographic, and geography, along with what initiatives will resonate most with each group.
5 Trends Everyone Will Be Chasing Tomorrow
You think you’re on-trend, but are you? Tastes and habits pivot so quickly these days it’s better to be ahead of what’s coming next. No one wants to get left behind, so the folks at SPINS have dug deep into their vast resources of data to help you find the trends that are on the horizon. Walk away from this session with a head start, ready to stock the hot products that customers are starting to look for. Set yourself apart by being the retailer that helps set the trends instead of merely following them.
E-commerce After Covid: Where Is Online Grocery Going Next?
The next big thing is the endless aisle, which is the ability to offer every SKU in your wholesaler’s warehouse. In this session, e-commerce solution provider ShopHero and distributor Dot Foods will explain how their partnership makes endless aisle easy and affordable for independent retailers. They’ll illustrate the importance of offering a robust solution that strengthens the relationship between grocer and shopper, provides new revenue streams for retailers and wholesalers, and future-proofs the independent industry against box-box and chain competitors. Retailers will also offer their perspectives.
