For the Media:

The National Grocers Association (NGA) annual trade conference, known as The NGA Show, is the single best opportunity for independent retailers and wholesalers to explore the latest technologies, products and solutions, while learning best practices in workshops and through retailer-to-retailer and retailer-to-trading partner interaction.

Independent grocers are an expanding force in the overall retail food industry, responsible for about 1% of the nation's overall economy, generated from 21,000 stores, $131 billion in sales, 945,000 jobs, and $30 billion in wages. This year’s show, bigger than ever, reflects the power and reach of this growing market segment.
