Kroger Forum

Join CRC on the morning of November 2nd as we host our annual Kroger Forum in downtown Cincinnati to review key takeaways from Kroger’s recent investor conference, our meeting with senior management and latest insights on trends/strategies at Kroger. The goal of this forum is to provide key insights and action items that you can apply to your specific business at Kroger.

We will deliver an overview of the grocery channel and our forecasts for 2019 performance, Kroger’s progress on digital including Ship To Home, ClickList and the Ocado partnership, as well as the company’s private label and assortment strategy. Our Forum will seek to answer the following questions and more:

• How has the Restock Kroger strategy progressed?
• What is the impact of Walmart, Aldi/Lidl, and other key players in the grocery space on Kroger?
• Is Kroger well positioned to successfully grow and defend share in online grocery?
• How can vendors best partner with Kroger long-term based on their current strategies?

The Kroger Forum is best positioned for Kroger team leads, NAMs, marketing directors, category & insight managers, finance analysts, and others calling on or looking to sell into Kroger.
