Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress | Orlando, FL 

Join us for GenNext 2021 in Orlando, FL this November!

The Progressive Grocer GenNext Symposium addresses crucial issues shaping the future of the grocery industry like labor & retention, technology,  diversity & inclusion, and the changing habits of shoppers. 
By bringing together the most innovating emerging talent with the GenNext Awards gives the most complete perspective of what's next for grocery. 
Last year might have removed our option to meet in-person, but this year we're planning to provide the opportunity to get together and celebrate live in Orlando & a hybrid virtual aspect to follow!

Do you know an innovator, disruptor or difference-maker having an impact on their organization, the industry and colleagues? Someone who possesses that “it” factor that is hard to describe but sets them apart as a next generation industry leader? If so, we want to hear from you as we look to honor the industry’s best and brightest!

We're looking for nominees who have shown:

  • A high level of commitment to a career in the food retailing industry and the communities their company serves.
  • Innovative thinking and an ability to overcome challenges and capitalize on opportunities to serve shoppers more effectively.
  • An ability to inspire others through actions, accomplishments, leadership and vision.
  • A willingness to make an impact in the world beyond work through various types of community involvement.

    Nomination deadline: August 15, 2021
