On October 4th and 5th, several members from Impact Group’s Natural, Signature, and Performance teams attended KeHE’s first national “natural” show. KeHE touted the show as “a unique opportunity for retailers and vendors to meet, sample and buy all product categories.”
Signature was well represented with over 26 vendors exhibiting in the Signature aisle. The aisle was in a prime location directly across from the New Item Pavilion. In addition to that, Impact Group Natural vendors also had several booths in that same aisle and adjoining aisles.
The show was well attended by the retail and vendor communities. The last day of the show featured a Keynote presentation from KeHE’s President and CEO, Brandon Barnholt, as well as a dynamic presentation from Laurie Demeritt, CEO of The Hartman Group discussing industry insights and trend spotting. The session was wrapped up by a retailer panel made up of a cross section of KeHE’s Natural Customer Base.
The combined Impact Group teams did a tremendous job representing Impact Group and all our vendors. Thanks to all who pitched to make this show a huge success for Impact Group. KeHE’s next large show will be in Atlanta in February 2018.
