NEW ORLEANS —CSP's spirited 2020 Convenience Retailing University conference brought together a record number of attendees Feb. 18 and 19 in New Orleans for inspiration and education.
Full-house general sessions provided an industry overview, as well as new ways to approach creativity and the future of artificial intelligence.
Well-attended category tracks relayed data and trends in eight breakout sessions: behind the counter, CBD, center store, dispensed beverages, foodservice, loyalty, packaged beverages and technology.
And one-on-one networking sessions gave retailers time to meet with a variety of product suppliers to find out what's new and what's coming.
Here's a peek at the event ...
