2021 Gravisite Event
Dear Gravisite Attendees,
Due to our 2020 Conference cancellation caused by COVID-19, there have been many questions regarding next years' event. We are excited to announce, that as of now, we are planning on hosting the 2021 Gravisite Conference at the Hilton Resort and Spa, in Clearwater, FL. The event will be held Wednesday, May 4th through Friday, May 7th, 2021.
A full refund for the 2020 registered attendees and sponsors was issued at the end of April. If you have not seen the refund, please contact our Gravisite Coordinator (Nina Saurey) at your earliest convenience.
The Gravisite Planning Committee will use much of the content and topics prepared for this year's event in the 2021 Conference where applicable and relevant. We want to thank each of you for your patience, support and understanding during this unique time. We wish you, your families and colleagues continued safety and health.

THE CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE
THROUGH AN ANALYTIC PERSPECTIVE
About the Conference
The Gravisite Conference is a forum promoting the sharing of knowledge and ideas among Site Location Research and Real Estate professionals. Every attendee will be impacted by the dynamic topics presented and will learn from peers and educated presenters. This allows each of us to leverage our unique insights, knowledge and expertise. We're confident that this venue and atmosphere will be a catalyst to Elevating Customer Experience through an Analytic Perspective.
Attendees recognize the numerous opportunities and challenges facing the Supermarket and Retail Industry. While the retail industry remains an ever changing landscape, rarely has the confluence of so much transformation and change occurred at the same time. As such, the role and impact of analytic-driven insights are more critical than ever!

the customer back?
3. What does your store offer that competitors do not and how are you sharing your offering with current
and future customers?
