Winsight Grocery Business and Retail Dietitians Business Alliance Announce Inaugural Thought Leadership Conference
The Retail Dietitian Exchange Combines Networking, Education, Experience and Industry Insights May 21-22 2018 in Chicago
The Retail Dietitians Business Alliance is partnering with Winsight Grocery Business (WGB), a leading trade magazine and Retail Dietitians Business Alliance (RDBA), to launch a new premiere event exclusive to retail dietitians called the Retail Dietitian Exchange.
The two-day event takes place May 21-22, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago during the National Confectioners Association’s (NCA) Sweets and Snacks Expo.
The Retail Dietitian Exchange will feature the industry’s preeminent thought-leaders, RDBA’s board members, panels from the nation’s largest retailers, and insights from RDBA founder and CEO, Phil Lempert.
“The event will be the first of its kind for Winsight Grocery Business,” says Jeff Friedman, executive vice president of Grocery, for the publication. “I’m thrilled to partner with RDBA and the NCA in delivering a must attend event for RDs that not only offers proprietary content but also forward-thinking community dialogue.”
“RDBA strives to offer its members the most important tools to further their careers and we are thrilled to be working with Winsight to expand our educational platform to include this one of a kind conference. Unlike other conferences we will be offering RD focused insights on the latest trends including cellular agriculture, cannabis, blockchain technologies, indoor farming and a special presentation from RDBAs Executive Director Annette Maggi on the current state of the retail dietetics industry along with the best speakers in the industry,” says Lempert. “The Retail Dietitian Exchange will offer these professionals the latest in the business of retail including trends, merchandising, working with suppliers, and more.”
Retail dietitians will be invited to attend by RDBA; invitation will be sent out over the next several weeks.
