Bob Woodward to Kick Off 2014 NGA Show
The National Grocers Association (NGA) has selected Bob Woodward, famed Washington Post journalist, author and Watergate scandal reporter, as the opening general session speaker for the 2014 NGA Show.
Sponsored by Kraft Foods, the opening general session is the kick-off to the event, which will be held Feb. 9-12, 2014, in Las Vegas.
"NGA is honored to have such a legendary journalist on our stage to kick off the 2014 Show," said Peter J. Larkin, president and CEO, NGA. "He has never been afraid to be on the cutting edge of investigative reporting, and his expertise in current affairs, economics, and the political arena underscore his relevance to our industry."
Woodward is best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the Watergate scandal in 1973 and his reports on the September 11 terrorist attacks, both for the Washington Post where he currently serves as associate editor. In addition, he has authored or co-authored 17 national best selling non-fiction books including "All the President's Men," "Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA" and "Obama's Wars."
Woodward's presentation is one of over 40 educational sessions and special events that will be featured at the 2014 NGA Show, for which registration opens mid-July.
The NGA is the national trade association representing the retail and wholesale grocers that comprise the independent sector of the food distribution industry.
