LAS VEGAS -- Convenience distributors, retailers, brokers, manufacturers and suppliers met in Las Vegas last week for the annual AWMA Marketplace & Solutions Expo.
Along with education opportunities—such as Kit Dietz’s Harmonizing Assortment Conference and the AWMA Women’s Leadership Initiative breakfast, which welcomed sociologist and lead researcher on the book “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead,” Marianne Cooper—attendees strolled the expo floor, looking for the next big thing.
Convenience Store Products was there, tracking new products and seeking fresh ideas to draw traffic and sales into the c-store. Among the trends: bold flavors, products to improve one's well-being and--no surprise--a bounty of vaping devices.
Following is Part 2 of our slideshow of great finds captured on the show floor.
