The CGA Strategic Conference is the most productive, well-attended, annual gathering of the California grocery industry. Each year, CGA brings together the top retail decision-makers representing the broad spectrum of California’s grocery industry and leading suppliers for this one-of-a-kind, business-building conference.

The Conference continues to identify the emerging trends that will define the grocery industry in the coming years. We seek to challenge your perspective, ignite new and innovative thinking, and provide forums to collaborate with peers and learn from forward-thinking, cutting-edge presenters.

Ultimately, you and your team will walk away from this year’s conference with new strategies that will inspire greater culture building throughout your organization and with your customers.

In addition, each conference includes numerous networking opportunities and, of course, CGA’s signature one-on-one retailer/supplier meetings and its an event you won’t want to miss.
