The sessions have been broken up into three tracks to meet the needs of everyone in the industry. They vary slightly by day, but generally follow these themes:

Track 1 – The Future of Brands

Focusing heavily on marketing, this track will explore key tactics specific to the CPG and grocery industries. You’ll explore emerging platforms, artificial intelligence, data and how traditional shopper marketing is evolving in the digital era.

Track 2 – Next Generation Shopping Experiences

Consumers continue to expect a unique shopping experience so this track will explore a variety of new technologies and growth strategies to help cater to them. The traditional retail business model is changing so you’ll learn about how the store is evolving and how to adapt yours.

Track 3 – Innovations in the Supply Chain

This track looks at every segment of your supply chain through the lens of innovation, exploring ideas on streamlining and optimization. You’ll also learn about how to adapt to changing consumer expectations as well as useful new advances in the ‘last mile.’

The full agenda has been finalized and is available online.
