As the category management and shopper insights industry’s leading Association with a global reach, we know the value in building relationships, and how important it is for members to connect. This Fall, we are launching premier ‘Mix & Mingle’ events in a city near you, and we invite you to a night on the town to build your network.

Meet us in Minneapolis, Chicago, Bentonville, or Cincinnati for a unique mixer event, including drinks, small bites, entertainment and most importantly … you! So why not step away from your screen, call up a few friends from the industry, and join us for an evening of fun.

PLUS! If your LinkedIn profile pic or company headshot is looking a little tired, take advantage of the headshot booth that will be available throughout the evening, on us.

This is a free event, simply RSVP to guarantee your spot.
