How can I participate in Progressive Grocer’s Grocery Industry Week?

If you are one of those fortunate to be an award honoree all you need to do is register to attend! TWIG honorees will receive their codes in July, with GenNext & Retailer of the Century receiving theirs in the weeks following their acheivement announcement.

If you would like to attend and integrate your experience into other facets of grocery week that is easy too.  Given it is Orlando, we have created a “speed pass” - ala Disney to participate in the other content sessions, receptions or dinners of your choice.
