Retail Symposium 2019
Location: Nashville, TN
Date: Sep 26, 9:30 AM – 03:30 PM
Constantly evolving consumer trends makes life challenging for retailers trying to keep up with the demand of new innovations, lower prices and better quality. Further, a retailer’s private label product lifecycle is one of the most complex of any industry when it comes to bringing products to market. When consumers see products on the shelf, they give little thought to how they arrived but, we in the retail industry understand all too well the journey of a private label product. From line/range planning, product development, supplier management, sourcing, quotations, samples, and all the way through production, quality, compliance and delivery, the product lifecycle is a painstaking process, managed by many individuals, teams and decision makers along the way.
At the 2019 Retail’s Sourcing Symposium we will discuss leading retailer best practices and uncover the latest in retail sourcing technology. We will examine how to interlink SPEED,SCALE and SIMPLICITY with digitization, that will enhance the end-to-end, private label process inclusive of inspiration, line planning, development and sourcing. We will learn about extended cloud platform and mobile sourcing technology advantages that are available today, while exploring industry best practice and future thinking roadmaps diving business benefit, growth and good health for the retail industry.
