NGA Expands Expo Floor, Pavilions for 2014 Show
Based on the success of its 2013 Show, the National Grocers Association (NGA) will expand the Expo floor by 44 percent at its 2014 NGA Show, set for Feb. 9-12, 2014 at the Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
"We are excited about the wide variety of products and services on the Show floor in 2014," said Peter J. Larkin, president and CEO, NGA. "The value proposition and return on investment for Show attendees increases every year, demonstrating our commitment to the industry by providing real solutions for independent retailers."
The NGA Expo floor will include pavilions in areas such as produce, meat, health, beauty, wellness, general merchandise products and technology.
Returning for its third year, the Produce Marketing Association (PMA) Produce Pavilion has once again increased its real estate on the Expo floor and will bring 3,600 square feet of fresh produce suppliers directly to retailers.
Because of the success of the North American Meat Association (NAMA) 2013 MEATXPO, which was held in conjunction with the 2013 NGA Show, NAMA has decided to host the first-ever Meat Pavilion at the 2014 show. The Pavilion will feature more than 2,400 square feet of meat supplier companies and products.
For the first time, the Global Market Development Center (GMDC) will bring a 3,000-square-foot pavilion of general merchandise, health, wellness and beauty care products to the 2014 NGA Show.
NGA's technology partners, the Center for Advancing Retail Technology (CART) and Personiphi, is returning with a 3,200-square-foot pavilion and will showcase even more technological innovations and solutions from a variety of companies designed to streamline retail workflow and efficiency.
The NGA is the national trade association representing the retail and wholesale grocers that comprise the independent sector of the food distribution industry.
