The annual National Grocers Association show just ran from Feb. 26-March 1 in Las Vegas, and the show was the best attended since 2017, according to NGA CEO and President Greg Ferrera. There were plenty of vendors, plenty of retailers, and a buzzy energy throughout the whole show.
Hot topics included Inflation, what retailers can be doing to recapture stomach share from restaurants, and retention, retention, retention. Workers are looking for purpose, and, the consensus at the show was — grocers have to help drive home the narrative of the “why” of what they do, not just the “what” or “how.”
There were also lots of nifty tech innovations on the show floor: here’s a look at 5 of the coolest we saw.
