Description

REVTECH is excited to present our grocery-themed conference on Aug 24th in Dallas.


Join us for "Tech Trends In Grocery" — a one day event (perfect for a same-day getaway if you’re near the Dallas area) filled with insights from people within the industry and the opportunity to network with both grocery retail thought leaders and the REVTECH network of mentors and participants.


The event will take place at the Walnut Glen Tower Conference Center in Dallas, TX, Thursday, August 24th, from 9:00AM-4:00PM. With Amazon’s recent acquisition of Whole Foods there is no question that grocery is the hot topic in retail right now.


This event will showcase innovation in the grocery industry from multiple perspectives. Hear from industry experts, CMOs, CIOs, owners, and innovators.


This year's keynote speakers include:

As Founder and CEO of CART, Gary Hawkins has an unparalleled view to current and future innovation in fast moving consumer goods retail. Reviewing thousands of new solutions each year, combined with over 30 years of industry experience leading shopper-focused innovation across the supply chain, uniquely position Hawkins to guide the future of retail.


Zachary Porter is a founding Partner of Viceroy Realty Advisors and Co-Owner of Royal Blue Grocery – Highland Park Village. Royal Blue Grocery – Highland Park Village is a compact, urban market. It's small in size, but offers a bit of everything: freshly prepared foods, gourmet goods, conventional groceries, catering, and a coffee & wine bar.


Pitch topics will include Store Analytics, Automation, Artifical Intelligence, Labor Efficiency, Data Security, and Customer Loyalty.


A reception will follow the event in REVTECH's office.
