Winning The Moment

At the 2019 NPD Food Summit, we will dive into the consumer mindset and explore how all players in the food industry can engage in new ways all along the Path to Consumption® and win the moment. Competition is tougher than ever. People just want to eat — they don’t care if their meals are sourced from a restaurant, a retailer, their pantry, or somewhere else. Winning the Moment requires creativity, innovation, and a deep understanding of when and where you have the most influence. Foodservice operators, manufacturers, and retailers will discover will discover how to make sure your product or brand is prominent in the consumer’s decision set.

Winning the moment means brands must insert themselves into the consumer’s decision-making process — what to eat as a snack, where to go to lunch, and what to prepare for dinner — and then influence the outcome of the decision. As technology enables convenience, and as consumers redefine the choices they make when it’s time to eat, there are so many ways to win the moment!

Join your NPD account team and industry leaders to explore the issues that matter most to your business — cannabis at foodservice, exciting menu trends, health and wellness tribalism, the future of food. . . and much more.
