FMI Connect is the new FMI Show, redesigned to connect the industry and inspire the future of food retail. FMI Connect provides solutions to the greatest food retail challenges: growing basket size, increasing customer trips, improving margins, increasing market share and developing leadership.


Exhibiting at FMI Connect, the global food retail experience, gives you the rare opportunity to help influence the reinvention of food retail's premier event...and, in turn, to shape the industry.

Top 5 Reasons to Exhibit:

Help shape the future of food retail.

Connect with 15,000 participants from 75+ countries.

About FMI:

To many, "FMI" is an annual trade show featuring aisles filled with dazzling exhibits, educational workshops offering the most up-to-date ideas on how to manage businesses efficiently and social events providing the change to make new friends.

But FMI is far more than that.

As the largest trade association of its kind, FMI offers its members a diversity of services that range from helping the small independent operation remain competitive, to assisting wholesalers to develop the latest distribution systems, to identifying consumer attitudes toward food safety, solid waste, new products and the like.
