San Diego – The 2017 VIBE Conference welcomes world renowned demographer, bestselling author and president of KGC Direct, LLC. Kenneth W. Gronbach as the keynote speaker for the annual premier beverage conference, taking place Feb. 27 to Mar. 1 at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina.
Twenty years ago Gronbach made an important discovery in the sales of Japanese motorcycles that led him to switch careers from retail marketing to demography. Since then, Gronbach has been able to forecast societal, commercial, economic, cultural and political phenomena with uncanny accuracy, advising businesses undergoing major changes.
“The study of demography and the study of demographic is an incredible and accurate tool for forecasting a company’s business,” Gronbach said. “Without it, you can’t know the size of the market that’s headed your way.”
During the keynote session Gronbach will share his insights on how demographics have an impact on the future of society. Using wit, humor and common sense, Gronbach will entertain attendees while making complicated concepts easily understandable. Attendees will walk away from Gronbach’s presentation with useful information they will be able to apply to their businesses immediately.
In addition to the keynote session, the conference will host three general sessions, sixteen workshops, three tastings, two award ceremonies, research from Technomic, Nielsen CGA and Datassential MenuTrends™ and a number of networking opportunities.
