Arlington, VA, 2014-8-5 — /EPR Retail News/ — The National Grocers Association (NGA) announced today the opening of registration for The NGA Show, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, February 8 – 11, 2015.
“The NGA Show is exclusively designed for the independent supermarket channel offering over thirty educational workshops and general sessions geared specifically for independent grocers in addition to an expansive exhibit floor. The Show also provides a forum for independent retailers, wholesalers, and suppliers to interact with and learn from one another, which is reflected in our 2015 theme: Where Independents Gather To Learn, To Engage, To Share, To Network and To Innovate,” said NGA President and CEO Peter Larkin. “We look forward to building on the momentum from the previous Show and making the 2015 NGA Show an even bigger and better event for independents.”
On the heels of the 2014 show, which set records for both the number of attendees and exhibitors, the 2015 show features former U.S. Secretary of Defense and CIA Director Leon E. Panetta as keynote speaker during its opening session, sponsored by Kraft. The iconic hit-making group, America, will perform at the Chairman’s Gala and Reception.
Back by popular demand, NGA will be holding pre-convention workshops on a variety of topline industry topics, as well as a host of special events, including the exciting Best Bagger Competition, sponsored by PepsiCo, and Creative Choice Awards, sponsored by Kellogg’s and Unilever.
The 2015 NGA Show will be held at the Mirage Hotel and Casino. Online registration is available at www.theNGAShow.com/register.
