The Convenience Foodservice Exchange will provide a forum for retailers and their supplier and distributor partners to exchange actionable information, insights, and data that will lead to increased sales and shopper engagement.

This invitation-only event is scheduled for September 15 & 16, 2016 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. Participation is limited to 50 key convenience store executives from the industry’s most progressive chains.

With a primary focus on the convenience store consumer, the event will explore such important issues as why consumers choose one channel over another when purchasing food and beverages, what attributes of the foodservice experience are most important to consumers, and how c-stores can improve in order to gain a bigger share of the foodservice pie.

The 2016 Convenience Foodservice Exchange will include:

  • Convenience Store News’ premier C-store Foodservice “Shopper Universe” Thought Leadership Research presentation;
  • Pre-arranged Boardroom Briefing Presentations to selected retailers;
  • C-store Foodservice Taste and Innovation Zone exhibits; and
  • A Consumer Focus Group Presentation.

The event is modeled after the highly successful Grocerant Summit, produced by CSN’s sister brand, Progressive Grocer. The Grocerant Summit attracts grocery retailers and suppliers by providing information, insights and best practices on increasing that industry’s share of consumers’ away-from-home food dollars.
