The 2019 GroceryShop event opened today at the Venetian in Las Vegas, NV and runs through Wednesday, September 18. The show is sold out, but GroceryShop is emerging as the premier grocery tech event, for both brick and mortar and ecommerce solutions. The GroceryShop folks put on a stellar event with excellent content. But do take a moment between all of the sessions to check out the latest from all of the vendors at the show.

We’ve ​mapped out all of the vendors for you!

Israeli-based CommonSense Robotics recently rebranded the organization as “Fabric” and opened a North American headquarters.
