FMI Connect – The Global Food Retail Experience


FMI Connect 2014 is the new, annual FMI Show, where the entire food retail industry comes together—15,000 retailers, wholesalers and suppliers from every channel of the food retail business. It’s where retailers of all kinds will find answers to current business challenges and inspiration for the future of food retail.
How can you grow sales? Expand your market share? Increase customer trips? Become the preferred destination of time-strapped cooks or health-minded shoppers? FMI Connect will show you the way. 

More than a trade show, FMI Connect is an interactive, educational, all-senses experience. The Exhibit Hall hosts exciting features such as the idea-sparking Retail Experience of the Future and Health & Wellness Retail Zone, a new Fresh Pavilion and Learning Lounge, the PMMI-PACK EXPO Possibilities in Packaging Innovation Pavilion, the Supermarket Chef Showdown and live culinary Demonstrations, as well as 900 exhibitors ready to collaborate and problem-solve with attendees.

From Tuesday’s Opening Reception to an early morning Fun Run, afternoon Store Tours and Thursday evening’s Anheuser-Busch Closing Event at Wrigley Field, special events at FMI Connect offer daily opportunities to connect with professional peers and build important business relationships.

FMI Connect’s robust education program provides strategic insights and actionable takeaways from a full roster of industry experts—and world-class keynote speaker. Workshops address practically every topic important to your business’s current and future success, including consumer engagement, strategies for your fresh department, health and wellness program ideas, leadership and staff development, leveraging the power of private brands, and trends in retail technology and innovation.

As an added bonus, co-located events—United Fresh 2014, the PMMI-PACK EXPO Possibilities in Packaging Innovation Pavilion, InterBev Beverage 2014 and the U.S. Food Showcase—are included with FMI Connect registration.
FMI Connect is the must-attend food retail event. If it’s out there, it’s in here!
