Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be the opening keynote speaker at the 2022 NGA Show, scheduled for Feb. 27-March 1 at the Caesars Forum Convention Center in Las Vegas. The keynote speaker is sponsored by The Kraft Heinz Company.
The NGA Show, presented by the National Grocers Association, is the industry’s largest gathering of independent retailers and wholesalers, food retail industry executives, food/CPG manufacturers and service provides for unparalleled opportunities to learn, engage, share, network and innovate.
The 55th governor of New Jersey from 2010 to 2018 and former U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, Christie is a senior legal and political commentator for ABC News, the managing member of the Christie Law Firm and Christie 55 Solutions LLC, and the author of Let Me Finish and Republican Rescue: Saving the Party from Truth Deniers, Conspiracy Theorists and the Dangerous Policies of Joe Biden.

He also devised the state’s groundbreaking response to Superstorm Sandy, leading the rebuilding of the state’s housing, infrastructure and public schools, and setting a bipartisan example for storm recovery.
“With his trademark charisma and candor, Governor Christie will provide NGA Show attendees an in-depth understanding of what is happening in the nation’s capital and what it means for our industry,” said Greg Ferrara, NGA president and CEO. “He highlights that achievable solutions and unrelenting leadership will help move us forward and help solve the most pressing issues in Washington. Thanks again to Kraft Heinz for their ongoing support of the NGA Show and the keynote speaker.”
In addition to the keynote address, attendees at the NGA Show will have opportunities to attend more than 40 workshops and sessions designed to bring independent retailers up-to-date on the latest trends and best practices in the food retail industry and equip them with strategies to increase profits and drive the bottom line. More than 300 exhibitors are also scheduled to be on hand representing a diverse range of product categories to update retailers on innovations, solutions and new products to drive customer satisfaction.
