The growth playbook for CPG (consumer-packaged goods) brands has evolved. There are so many new opportunities for them to reach, acquire and engage consumers so they can implement a long-term playbook for growth.
According to McKinsey, the CPG industry is currently valued at approximately $2 trillion. Now more than ever, it’s critical for founders and operators as well as digital and marketing teams to understand how the landscape is evolving so they can make the right strategic decisions for their brands and fine-tune the tactics that will support their goals.
That’s why at the Retail Innovation Conference & Expo in June, we’ve created the “CPG Connect Stage” to unite leaders in CPG and tackle trending topics such as: sustainability, DTC, customer retention, wholesale expansion and more! While our broader conference programming will definitely be relevant for brands — sessions touch on everything from retail media to expanding marketplace sales strategies, first-party data strategy and even how to leverage new digital communities — we wanted to offer a track designed to reflect the unique trends, challenges and opportunities for these brands.
Check out the current list of confirmed speakers and session topics below.
Along with the stellar session content, there will be a dedicated space in the expo hall for CPG industry executives to network and collaborate. Designed to be a networking space first, the CPG Clubhouse will create a unique opportunity to connect one-to-one with CPG brands and explore how they’re looking to grow their businesses across channels. CPG brand executives are welcome to gather in the Clubhouse to network and meet with the speakers, discuss key trends, solve problems and brainstorm new collaborations. We also encourage retailer execs to join the conversation, so the broader industry can find new ways to work together.
