BRdata World is an annual conference focused on education and technology best practices for the grocery retail industry. Grocery retailers, wholesalers, service providers, and technology partners meet in a friendly setting to learn, share, and network. Ensure you are getting the most out of your grocery retail technology investments, while learning how other retailers have implemented cutting edge technologies, such as AI, ESLs, and advanced customer loyalty.

There are over 50 planned sessions for this year’s conference, including several sessions from leaders in the grocery industry and your peers.
Additionally, the conference is focused on seven specific solutions that address inflation adjustments, labor, and competing against big chains:

1. Automating pricing and TPRs while tracking competitor retails to ensure gross margin is protected.
2. Implementing actional analytics to provide information enterprise wide within minutes of consumer checkout.
3. Utilizing a vendor portal to automate capture of direct vendor costs, deals, and new items.
4. Utilizing AI and ML (machine learning) for pricing and automatically feed price changes to electronic shelf labels (ESLs).
5. Implementing perpetual inventory to automate ordering with CGO (computer generated ordering).
6. Customer Loyalty: getting started, providing an ROI, implementing AI/ML to track and reward your customers.
7. Data aggregation via NGA Independent Insights to help independent grocers come together and compete against big chains with data.

Feedback from BRdata World

“What a great conference! Loved the venue, and I left really excited about what’s next for T&C and BRdata. I am super anxious to start working together on the vendor portal. I can’t tell you how relieved I was to see that may of the projects we have planned over the next 18 months are on your roadmap. This again reassured me that our partnership is the best choice for T&C”

“I wanted to thank you again for putting on such a great conference!  I always enjoy them, but they seem to keep getting better and better.  The level of knowledge present at your conference is amazing I must say.  There are so many VERY intelligent people that attend on both your team and the retailer’s side. Your speakers were also VERY relevant I thought.  John Coyle’s presentation on time and having meaningful experiences can be applied to virtually every aspect of a person’s life in my opinion.  It also applies to business and time management, from the C-Suite to a bagger.  Professor O’Malley’s presentation is spot on in my opinion as well.  It will take some of that much longer to hit our rural markets, but it is certainly coming.  As buying habits change, an organization must remain pliable and change with it, or the organization will cease to exist.  I think it so great to see the very bright young people that have joined your team!  Thanks again, and it was great seeing you as always.  I already look forward to next year!”

Classes were well participated – good questions and ideas.”

“I thought the conference was great. The best part of the conference for me is networking with other retailers that are facing similar issues and operating in similar environments with similar equipment. Also, meeting the teams that we work with everyday either on development or support is always very valuable.”


“The conference was excellent, makes you feel like you are an important part of the company. I have taken a lot of information back to make us a better organization.”

“Great interaction with the BR Data personnel. I enjoyed hearing about the updates, and appreciate hearing what others are doing with the program. Probably the best conference or seminar I have ever attended. The BR Data folks are listening, and trying to develop the program with the needs of the users in mind.”


I can go back knowing that I can restart conversations with people. Part of a group.  Impressive how can serve so many different interests.  Enjoyed tremendously, need to twist other arms to attend next conference.
