CFX: The Summit for Exploring Food Trends, Operations, Safety & Technology Through Collaboration & Networking

From beverage strategies and cutting-edge technology to proprietary food offerings and creating an exceptional service culture, the best convenience stores are differentiating themselves to win market share today and into the future.

The 2024 Convenience Foodservice Exchange, hosted by Convenience Store News, will bring leading convenience foodservice executives together with innovative supplier partners to maximize opportunities, solve problems and grow their foodservice sales.

A distinctive, high-quality foodservice program is no longer a want-to-have for a convenience store operator. It’s a MUST-HAVE. Foodservice is the centerpiece – the focal point – of a modern successful convenience store.

Join us on May 2-3 in Tampa, Florida for 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.
