Attendee Testimonials


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. Given 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 three days, attendees have the opportunity to

  • Take part in over 40 education workshops, to bring home ideas that are guaranteed to drive profitable growth to your company
  • Visit an EXPO floor designed to optimize business relationships between retailers and manufacturers and service suppliers, which features innovative and game-changing products and solutions
  • Network with peers and industry leaders


My experience was overwhelming - from the great workshops to the exciting event of the bagging competition. Being new to the grocery industry and leading the marketing of a 5 store group, the ideas on working with social media, grocery online shopping and delivery and working with the variety of shoppers and their perception of the best shopping experience was eye-opening. 


- Libby Berndt
Reynolds Market
Very positive. I took greater advantage of networking opportunities than in past shows, and walked away with some valuable peer contacts in my field (marketing and advertising).
-Brandon Jones
Houchens Industries
This was my first show and I thought it went exceptionally well. I have recommended to Executive team to continue to participate with this show with larger booth to show more products.
-Lisa DuBois
International Wholesale Supply Inc
Every year, we find the NGA EXPO to be a valuable opportunity for networking with existing and potential customers, and each year seems to be busier than the last, with more traffic in our booth.
