Promoting and protecting the independent, community-focused grocery industry and its suppliers.

WFIA Connect: Vendor-2-Grocer 

Connect: Vendor-2-Grocer is the only event of its kind for the independent grocery industry in Washington State! It's an amazing day full of celebration and connection of everything that makes our industry unique. The event starts with a speed networking session between retailers and a select group of featured vendors. A reception with silent auction follows and allows vendors who were not featured in the speed networking session to have the opportunity to meet with retailers prior to the start of dinner. Closing out the event is our Industry Awards Dinner. The Dinner is full of several exciting components including a speaker presentation, a live auction offering "Connect" packages with CEOs and buyers from prominent retail establishments, and the presentation of our Industry Awards. 

We hope you'll join us in Eastern Washington for this annual event in 2019!

WFIA's 2018 Connect: Vendor-2-Grocer featured an amazing showcase of 21 featured vendors! Without their sponsorship and support the event would not have offered the same level of connection it did.
