3 Key RD Benefits to Attending the CMA|SIMA 2023 Conference

January 25, 2023

For 10 years now, the Retail Dietitians Business Alliance has had a front row seat to retail dietitians being empowered by a community for professional growth. At any level of your career path, opportunities to connect, learn and exchange ideas can create new avenues to success. We’ve been listening to our RDBA members and paying attention to the evolving career opportunities available, and that’s why we are excited to share with you some great reasons to join us for the CMA|SIMA 2023 Annual Conference, Feb. 27th to Mar. 1st, at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada. Check out this exciting agenda and consider these key benefits to attending this event.

  1. Harness your potential from RD to VP by exploring modern complexities of the category management process — a growing potential arena for RDs. Take a deeper dive into eCommerce, retail channel specific insights, shopper insights, space planning and building your career with the skillsets for future leaders. This year’s conference theme, Activating Insights for a Dynamic Future” is framed with five incredible tracks offering a mix of speakers, workshops, breakout sessions and more.
  2. Get out of the office and make space for knowledge intake! Keeping up with the rapidly changing industry of category management while carrying out real time duties can seem overwhelming. Now is a chance to step away from the office, sit back and listen to any one of these expertly curated keynote speakers ready to share unique ideas, experiences and perspectives on the future of our industry.  Over the next couple weeks, we’ll share insights about the conference and what sessions may be of interest to Retail Dietitians. Yes, Phil Lempert will be a speaker! Click here for the full lineup.
