VIP Retailer Submission
As Innovation Zone Sponsor, you are entitled to five (5) VIP invites to retailers of your choice!
They will benefit from two full days of live education, collaboration, networking and problem-solving as we explore the dynamics behind the key trends impacting your business.
Our multi-experiential and educational agenda will include exclusive proprietary research into both consumers’ and retailers’ minds, store tours, expert presentations, interactive discussions, and first-class dining.
Please provide to Gabriela Silva the details below for your potential VIPs by February, 24th.
- Full Name
- Job Title
- Phone number
VIP guests will unlock free event registration, as well as complimentary travel reimbursement up to $300 and hotel accommodations on May 4th & 5th, 2023.
IMPORTANT: The sponsor is to provide the invitee names for approval, and only once they are approved, will they be invited to attend. The CSNews team will invite the attendee if approved. The only required action from the sponsor is submitting the potential VIP names to the CSNews team - please do not contact them before approval.
The Power Hour is a unique, high-value benefit for participating CFX attendees. During the one-hour session, you will meet one-on-one with other attendees whose interests and concerns match yours, based on a pre-event questionnaire. Our artificial Intelligence will match you with relevant attendees based on complementary profiles, prioritized by each person’s real-time preferences.
Led by John Wilkinson, Chief Curator, b2b talk

Hotel & Venue
Hilton Nashville Downtown
121 4th Ave S, Nashville, TN 37201
Reservations by phone, call 1 (800) 774-1500 and ask for the Convenience Foodservice Exchange Room Block.
* The group rate of $329 is on a first-come first-served basis and can sell out at any time. If the block sells out prior to March 31, hotel’s prevailing rates will apply. Make your reservations early!
Important Note on CFX Venue Availability:
After the Convenience Food Exchange venue was determined, a popular music artist announced their tour is visiting Nashville over the weekend following CFX. This created immediate market demand for hotel rooms and due to this demand we are unable to add/accommodate any hotel rooms at our group rate or assist with securing any rooms at the Hilton Downtown Nashville for any date outside of the 5/3-5/5 event dates.
If you would like to extend your stay after CFX has concluded, you will need to book directly through the Hilton Downtown Nashville site or seek other available lodging. On the day of this posting (1/31), there were reasonable hotel rates available near the Nashville International Airport.
Music City USA
Foodservice Takes Center Stage in Music City USA! Convenience Store News brings together foodservice decision-makers for an experiential networking and collaboration event in one of the country's best food cities.
