Celebrating Community and Growth: Anticipating the 2024 INFRA Annual Conference

  

We look forward to the INFRA Annual Conference for the buying opportunities and insightful education sessions, but more than anything, we look forward to the community. Every year, it’s uplifting to see the INFRA community come together to celebrate our shared passion for providing communities with nourishing, sustainable foods. It underscores the invaluable idea at the core of INFRA – that we are stronger together. In an increasingly competitive grocery landscape, the INFRA Annual Conference is a necessary moment to take stock of where we are, where we’ve been, and where we’ll go. For INFRA Members, it is valuable time away from the day-to-day management of your store to chat with your peers, gain knowledge from industry experts, and bring exciting new products into your store. For vendors and industry partners, it’s an opportunity to bring your product to new markets and feel connected to the lasting importance of INFRA’s vision for a sustainable, community-centered future. 

As we once again look forward to this annual celebration, we wanted to share some of the kind words our INFRA Members and vendor partners had to share about last year’s conference. We are confident that the 2024 INFRA Annual Conference will provide even more opportunities for connection, exploration, and fun.

The conference represents the best of INFRA smooshed into a 4-day extravaganza. There's education, there's deals, and above all there's community. I particularly love all the wonderful new connections - with peers, with names I recognize from the listserv that I can finally put a face on, and with industry experts. And that's just the people! Connecting with new ideas through the educational sessions and new products at the tabletop - there's so much to discover to take home to our stores.

I look forward to the INFRA Tabletop every year. The event is always well organized, making it easy to connect with buyers, showcase new products, and secure orders to finish the year strong!  It’s also a great time to network with other industry leaders, learn about the latest trends, and catch up with the INFRA team.

I’ve been to EXPO and several other events and the INFRA Conference is by far the best conference I have attended.

We're thrilled to attend the INFRA Annual Conference again this year and deepen our relationship with INFRA and its members. It's the perfect opportunity for one-on-one conversations to share how JUST ICE Tea positively impacts the planet.

How great INFRA is at nurturing this union of stores. Everyone was so willing to help our little store. It was great to feel like we fit in with this large crazy industry.
