Every year, hundreds of professionals representing the broad spectrum of California’s grocery industry convene for three days in Palm Springs to collaborate, network and develop new approaches to their businesses. CGA combines the Strategic Conference’s foundational elements with an exciting line-up of speakers that challenges you to think differently and anticipate the changing trends and new directions of the industry. Add in constant opportunities to connect with your most important partners all in one location at one time and you have the gold standard of industry conferences.
The CGA Strategic Conference is proud to offer an event that is not time spent AWAY from business, but rather time INVESTED IN your business.
Ultimately, nothing speaks to the enduring success of the CGA Strategic Conference like the praise of our participants, who affirm that this annual gathering is an ever-renewing source of challenging ideas, perceptive advice, and solid connections to implement and build on in the year ahead.
“The CGA Strategic Conference is exceptional in that there are national and regional decision makers from many of the largest CPG’s. The retailer has the opportunity to network with many of these companies and work at strengthening their relationship. This makes the conference so effective and quite unique; to be able to develop this many relationships all at one venue.”
2016 CGA Strategic Conference Planning Committee
A note from the 2016 Chairman of the California Grocers Association:
“The CGA conference is an opportunity every company in the California food industry should seize. The ability to connect at a rapid pace with multiple existing and new business relationships is a win for all concerned.”
