Make Your Time Count

Experience the power of connection at the CGA Strategic Conference through sponsorship. Connect with executives, senior management, procurement teams, and other professionals from the California grocery industry, and take advantage of this unique opportunity to generate fresh strategies and new business leads.

In addition to participating in the regularly scheduled events, sponsors gain the added benefit of a set number of private, pre-arranged meetings with select retailers. In a closely choreographed schedule that maximizes your time, CGA creates and coordinates more than 1,000 pre-scheduled business meetings that provide a productive and efficient way to build your connections and optimize your time at the conference.

Don’t wait to secure your spot as sponsorship opportunities are limited. Contact CGA today to elevate your brand, spark fresh strategies, and establish new business leads.

How Meetings are Scheduled

Our goal is to be the single most productive event you attend all year. As a conference sponsor, you receive a personalized schedule of  pre-arranged business meetings prior to your arrival at conference. The quantity and duration (40-minute or 20-minute) of these meetings is determined by sponsor level and date the sponsorship is paid. 

Here is an overview of how the process works:

  • CGA provides all sponsors with a complete list of participating retailers.
  • Sponsors indicate which retailers, in order of preference, they would like to meet.
  • CGA creates individual meeting schedules based on the sponsor’s priority status and retailer availability.
  • Final schedules are provided to sponsors after CGA completes the schedules and confirms the meetings.
  • To ensure that these meetings are productive for all involved, certain guidelines apply.
