The PSFK Guide To Groceryshop 2019


Check out our picks for the most exciting sessions and speakers at Groceryshop, a four-day event that covers grocery and CPG innovation

As the blurring between online and offline shopping behaviors becomes a reality for CPG brands and grocery retailers, innovation is becoming more important than ever. Companies need to be able to flex their digital muscles across all channels to ensure a seamless experience for the shopper in the front end and key operations in the back end.

Groceryshop is a four-day event that showcases exactly this kind of innovation. PSFK's researchers have highlighted sessions that point to the impact of these shifts on the physical store, including creating next-gen digital shopping, capturing and leverage data, building direct relationships with customers and readying brands for this kind of transformation.
