Technology Summit

Feb 26, 2023
Summit 224-226, 227-228, 229-230

In this year's Technology/Innovation track at the 2023 National Grocers Association Show in Las Vegas, we will look at technology from multiple perspectives, with a provocative and eclectic group of presenters and conversations that will focus on making the subject both relevant and resonant for attendees.  From a discussion of AI that emphasizes the importance of "Accessible Intelligence" to a multi-pronged examination of how technology can improve the customer experience … from a look at food-centric technologies such as store-level vertical farms that will change the way people shop and eat to a focus on retail media networks that can shape interactions between retailers and their customers … these sessions - fast-paced, interactive and curated by - are designed to get attendees energized and engaged with the use of technology for disruptive innovation.
