Wow!  With over 4000 in attendance, Groceryshop 2022 certainly came back from the pandemic with overwhelming excitement. It was great to see everyone mingling and networking with colleagues they haven’t seen in over two years in some cases. 

The overall content shared during the event was fantastic. As was the amazing speaker lineup. From the main stage keynotes of Jason Buechel, CEO, Whole Foods Market, Natalie Knight, Chief Financial Officer, Ahold Delhaize, Vince Jones, Ecommerce Chief, PepsiCo, John Furner, President & CEO, Walmart U.S., Darren Rebelez, President & CEO, Casey’s, the presentations and discussions did not disappoint.

Groceryshop 2022 Recap

The speakers across the breakout tracks were equally impressive, including a session on technology selection and partnerships led by our very own Amanda Astrologo, Partner at The Parker Avery Group. While each track had its focus, four key themes consistently jumped out:

  1. Continue to focus on omnichannel grocery as the key to future growth and sustainable relevancy.
  2. Commit to being a data-driven organization.
  3. Keep the focus on delivering unique product assortments and special customer experiences.
  4. Turn off auto-pilot and break down silos to drive collaboration and fresh thinking.
