Sponsor the National Rural Grocery Summit


The National Rural Grocery Summit is the premier networking and resource-sharing venue for independent grocers and rural food access stakeholders. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Summit was canceled. Yet, grocers continue to face a challenging and ever-changing retail landscape with disruptions in the supply chain, growing competition from dollar stores, the rise of e-commerce, and more. The 2022 Summit is more important than ever, providing a critical opportunity for participants to learn from and strategize with one another about sustaining rural grocery operations.

The National Rural Grocery Summit would not be possible without the support of our sponsors. Sponsorship allows us to:

  • Offer complimentary registration to rural grocery store owners (up to 2 per store)
  • Organize two days’ worth of interactive breakout sessions
  • Provide multiple keynotes from national thought leaders in rural grocery
  • Facilitate networking opportunities among rural grocery stores owners
  • And more!
