GS1 Connect is your opportunity to stay current with the latest industry updates, collaborate with trading partners to build best practices, and learn about solutions applicable to your supply and demand chain challenges.
As the leading trading partner event, the GS1 Connect Conference is an annual knowledge and networking forum that gives you the tools to build your business and maximize the value of applying standards-based business processes to drive efficiency, productivity, and a seamless customer experience.
