GS1 US Accepting Proposals for Connect 2018 Event

With a focus on supply chain, e-commerce, and technology topics and solutions, GS1 US is currently accepting applications from those interested in presenting at the annual GS1 Connect 2018 conference and exhibition, to be held on June 5-7 at the JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge, in Phoenix, Ariz.

GS1 US has invited proposals from companies that leverage GS1 standards for the conference's five main industry tracks in grocery, retail, health care, food service and standards. Solution providers can submit proposals for the Tech Track, which offers an opportunity for firms to showcase their services and products during exhibit hours.

Presentation topics should relate to the successful and innovative implementation of GS1 standards to solve a business-process challenge in at least one of the following areas: e-commerce, traceability and safety, product and location identification, data quality and management, inventory management, and product information or content acquisition. Topics may include proving the return on investment for a data-quality program, how to optimize operational efficiency in the supply chain, and leveraging standards for innovation amid industry disruption.

"This year, companies across many industries have had to contend with changing consumer behaviors, mergers and acquisitions, new business models, and a changing regulatory landscape both here in the US and globally," said Bob Carpenter, the president and CEO of GS1 US, in a prepared statement. "Out of such disruption, we look forward to some very thought-provoking sessions that will help attendees and their companies adapt to the new normal."

GS1 Connect attendees can exchange ideas and learn from GS1 standards implementation examples. The conference and exhibition are geared toward executives, directors and managers in customer service and relations, electronic data interchange, finance, information technology, e-commerce, materials handling, operations, packaging, pharmacies, supply chain management, transportation, logistics and more.

Applications to present during a GS1 Connect industry track or the Tech Track must be received by Jan. 31, 2018. Applications will be evaluated based on industry relevance and usefulness of topic to GS1 standards users and conference attendees.
