Join Us in Las Vegas for the NGA Show!  

 January 14, 2013 

 

Each February, the National Grocers Association holds the NGA Show in Las Vegas, NV. The Show provides independent grocers unparalleled opportunities to network, learn, and advance their companies. From the nationally-known Best Bagger competition to opportunities to give back to the industry, the Show seeks to be the industry's best one-stop shop for independent grocers.

Independent grocers are also focusing more and more on being at the forefront of the latest trends and technology, which has been evidenced by an increase in early registration numbers and a sold out expo floor for the 2013 Show. We are thrilled that IGA is once again a key partner for the Show, both through sponsorship of the Monday Super Breakfast Session as well as our educational schedule featuring workshop and panel speakers from IGA.

The NGA Show also addresses issues for small business owners. In the wake of the nation barely averting the "fiscal cliff," several significant issues are still unresolved. Major decisions await the new Congress such as raising the national debt ceiling, addressing the sequestration and reigning in government spending. Our opening general session will feature Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles, co-chairs of the National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform, for a candid conversation about the state of the US economy and our future.

A number of IGA retailers and corporate staff are already attending the show, but we would love to see others there as well. If you register by tomorrow, January 15, you save $100. Just visit www.thengashow.com for more details.

Thank you for all that you do to support the industry.
