2018 Iowa Grocery Industry Association

Each year, the Iowa Grocery Industry Association hosts a number of educational, legislative and promotional events. From members-only legislative events at the State Capitol to the Best Bagger competition held annually at the Iowa State Fair, the IGIA is partnering with retailers and suppliers across the state to advance Iowa’s food industry. The six events listed below are the Association's signature events and are a great way to form connections, meet influential leaders in the grocery industry and gain visibility for your business. And they're fun! Join us in 2018 for one or all.
