More space is needed to accommodate growing membership and show participation at NGA.
ARLINGTON, Va. – Thanks to an expanding membership and continued growth in exhibitor and participant attendance, the National Grocers Association (NGA) will be moving its annual show to San Diego in 2019 and 2020. The show is currently held in Las Vegas. In the past five years, NGA has doubled its membership.
“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, COO, 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.”
“We are very enthusiastic about the future of The NGA Show as well as the independent supermarket industry, and San Diego is 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 Larkin.
The show features more than 35 educational sessions and workshops, as well as roundtable discussions and partner exhibits that are geared toward providing attendees with the latest information that they can take home and implement in their businesses. The NGA Show brings together grocery retailers and wholesalers, food manufacturers and service providers in the independent supermarket channel.
The next NGA show will be Feb. 12-15, 2017, in Las Vegas.
