FMI Connect is the annual event where food retailers of all kinds, wholesalers, merchandisers, operations people, CIOs and CTOs - in other words, you - can go for ideas, products, partnerships and professional development.
From the FMI Expo to the education sessions, everything at FMI Connect is designed to help you stay relevant, stay ahead of your customers’ changing tastes and increase your profitability. The ultimate goal is to motivate one more family meal at home each week.
Much more than a showcase, FMI Connect is an interactive, all-senses experience that percolates with new ideas and sizzles with new solutions for every aspect of your business, every department of your store - and every channel of food retail. Exhibits engage retailers in problem-solving. The Supermarket Chef Showdown builds enthusiasm for new tastes and trends. Learning Lounges bring education to the exhibit floor.
On the Exhibit Floor:
Fresh and Perishable Products - more than ever before
Store Equipment & Design
Health & Wellness
