Bob Woodward, famed Washington Post journalist, author and Watergate scandal reporter, will serve as the speaker of the opening general session at the 2014 NGA Show. Sponsored by Kraft Foods, the opening session is the kick off to the show, which will be held Feb. 9-12 in Las Vegas.

Woodward is best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of the Watergate scandal in 1973 and his reports on the September 11 terrorist attacks, both for the Washington Post where he currently serves as associate editor. In addition, he has authored or co-authored 17 national best-selling non-fiction books including “All the President’s Men,” “Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA” and “Obama’s Wars.” Other famed journalists such as The New York Times’ Gene Roberts and CBS News’ Bob Schieffer have called Woodward’s work possibly the best reporting of all time.

“NGA is honored to have such a legendary journalist on our stage to kick off the 2014 show,” said Peter J. Larkin, president and CEO of the National Grocers Association. “He has never been afraid to be on the cutting edge of investigative reporting, and his expertise in current affairs, economics and the political arena underscore his relevance to our industry.”

Woodward’s presentation will one of more 40 educational sessions and special events that will be featured at the 2014 NGA Show, the place “where independents gather.” The 2013 show saw record numbers as independent grocers, wholesalers and suppliers joined together to address industry issues and make connections. Registration for the 2014 show will open in mid-July.
