The PMA Produce Pavilion will return for the 2016 NGA Show, to be held Feb. 28- March 2 at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. For the fifth year, the Produce Marketing Association will feature 32 exhibitors from the fresh produce industry within its 3,200-s.f. pavilion at the National Grocers Association’s annual convention.
“We continue to see value in bringing the NGA show to our members. Connecting the independent grocers buying community and produce suppliers together is a priority for both sides of the business, and we’re pleased to do this for the fifth consecutive year,” said Joe Watson, PMA’s VP of domestic business development.
Added Peter J. Larkin, president and CEO of NGA, “Fresh produce and products are increasingly becoming a priority for consumers. Given this growing trend, NGA is excited about the wide variety of produce exhibitors that the PMA Pavilion will bring to the 2016 Show.”
The expo floor is just part of the NGA Show experience, which also features more than 30 educational sessions and special events. The NGA Show is the place “where independents gather” and where independent grocers, wholesalers and suppliers join together to address industry issues and make connections that improve their bottom lines.
