INNOVATIONS IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY

What Trends to Expect?

Despite today’s digital age, nothing rivals face-to-face communication to establish, build and maintain business relationships. Grocery & Specialty Food West is the premier and must-attend B2B grocery & specialty food show of the year! The grocery sector is all about building relationships to grow your business, and this is the only show that brings together all facets of the grocery trade together under one roof. The exhibition floor features over 65,000-sq.-ft. of dedicated pavilions focused on key grocery & specialty categories from front end to back end including equipment, technology, food services, garden, financial and insurance.

From specialty grocers, to independents to majors chains and warehouse operators, food retailers from across Canada gather annually at the two-day event to grow their business. There are numerous opportunities to network, collaborate and grow. The mornings start with a full program of conference and workshops where both retailers and manufacturers can hear from thought leaders on trends and best practices. In the afternoon, the trade show and events provide another opportunity to collaborate with partners.

In addition, the event will offer exhibitors the OPTION to sell on the floor increasing opportunities between trading partners and their suppliers. This show feature creates a great business environment wherein exhibiting companies may choose to offer retailers “Trade Show Specials” which can take various forms such as special price, in-ad coupons, unique merchandising packs, reduced minimums or free shipping to name a few. Don’t delay and exhibit today to open the doors to a new world of growing opportunity.

GSF 2020 Postponement Announcement

Dear Attendees, Exhibitors,

We are beyond disappointed to announce that for the first time in more than 32 years we will not have a Grocery & Specialty Food West event in Vancouver this spring. Due to circumstances beyond our control, the show will have to be postponed until April 26th and 27th 2021.

The Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG) holds our participating Exhibitors, partners, attendees and staff in the highest regard and have no intention of taking any risk where this COVID-19 pandemic is concerned. Your well-being and safety is paramount to us. Although the BC Government’s directive banning all gatherings of 50 people or more was ultimately the deciding factor, we at CFIG consider people and community to be the pulse of all that we are and we have no doubt we will successfully move forward together at the right time.

GSF 2020 was poised to be our greatest version of this event ever. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience. We thank you for your support this year and we hope to continue having your support as we look to what will be a bigger and better version of GSF in 2021.

The outpouring of interest from our supplier community as well as our retailers has been unprecedented this year and all indications point towards a monumental event in 2021. We really appreciate your support during these times and look forward to working with you. Just let us know how we can help as we move forward towards GSF-West 2021.
