My Meetings

FMI's Supermarket Health and Wellness Conference offers an opportunity to develop strategies and tactics to capitalize on emerging health and wellness opportunities across the entire store! This conference incorporates all of the best elements of the former Supermarket Pharmacy Conference. We’ve created a meeting agenda that offers a forum for collaborative business meetings and education. Supermarket executives responsible for pharmacy, nutrition, marketing, HBC, center store and operations are invited to collaborate with suppliers and service providers to create a health and wellness shopping experience that meets the needs of today’s customers.

FMI will do this by offering:

  • Robust Education Sessions to help you build collaborative cross-department teams, develop health and wellness programs, market to the ever-evolving shopper and much more.

  • Business Appointments between retailers and suppliers to discuss new products and services or conduct brief business reviews.

  • Strategic Collaborative Exchanges (SCEs) that allow senior-level strategic dialogue among supermarket executives and their industry partners. Suppliers have the opportunity to host private meetings focused on creating collaboration around storewide initiatives such as Health and Wellness programs.

  • Conference attendees have a value-added bonus: Full access to FMI 2010 and the chance to experience a strategic industry overview at one of the largest food events in the world!
