The Groceryshop Event was held on October 28-31, 2018 at the Aria, Las Vegas. Groceryshop was founded by the team that created the world’s largest retail conference, Shoptalk. Groceryshop is a one-of-a-kind, three-day innovation event that includes both established and startup CPG brands, supermarkets, c-stores, drug stores, discount stores, ecommerce players, warehouse clubs, grocery and non-traditional grocery retailers. These organizations will join tech companies, real estate operators, investors and analysts to understand the disruptive new trends, technologies and business models they must now embrace to win in a rapidly changing industry. Groceryshop addressed shared challenges and opportunities relating to the evolution of how consumers shop for products ranging from food and beverage to health, beauty, personal care, household and pet supplies. 


Change is a constant when it comes to the food and grocery space. Consumers are increasingly expecting more from where they shop, what they buy, and how they consume. Food and beverage professionals explore a variety of topics about the industry, including trends and technologies in manufacturing, automation, sustainability, and food safety. Groceryshop provided direct-to-consumer and tech startups with an unparalleled opportunity to form important fundraising, product, distribution and other partnerships with retailers, brands, tech companies, investors, real estate operators, media, analysts and more. Groceryshop brought together national and regional grocery retailers, drug stores, convenience stores, drug stores, club/warehouse stores, discount stores and ecommerce players as well as CPG brands in food and beverage, beauty, personal care, household, health and other verticals. More than 150 companies exhibited at and sponsor Groceryshop to reach this audience and our Hosted Retailers & Brands Program will curate approx. 1,600 onsite meetings. 


The main focus of Groceryshop was to present an opportunity to build brand awareness, engage with decision makers, launch new products to the industry and media. Over 30 countries were in attendance to hear about the future of grocery shopping, and how technology is impacting how consumers are shopping. It’s safe to say that knowledge is power and with that knowledge wealth and needs can be met.
