Each year, The NGA Show brings together independent retailers and wholesalers, food retail industry executives, food/CPG manufacturers and service providers for unparalleled opportunities to learn, engage, share, network, and innovate. NGA is the only industry association devoted exclu­sively to the needs of independent grocers. Due to today’s ever-changing marketplace and evolving advancements in innovation occurring in the food retail industry, the NGA Show is a must-attend event.  

Over the course of four days, attendees have the opportunity to take part in more than 30 education workshops and visit an EXPO floor designed to optimize business relationships between retailers and manufacturers and service suppliers. Bring your whole team to ensure you take home ideas from every session at the Show!


NGA provides us with the opportunity to connect with the right people in a relatively short period of time when they are focused on embracing change and considering new opportunities.
