Retailers - WFIA Connect
Join your fellow retailers for our first-ever WFIA Connect event! Our goal is to provide an energetic and fun event that gives you a direct connection to 18 key vendors in a small-group, speed networking setting. This fast-paced networking event allows grocer and vendors to meet and converse though one-on-one focused conversations lasting five minutes at each table to introduce you to new products and services that will enhance your business success. Don't forget your business cards!
