F4SS Connect 2018: Wining in an eCommerce, Digital, and Omni-Channel World

Westin Beach Resort, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
Feb 26 - Feb 28, 2018

Why Attend

A seismic shift is happening in the retail industry that requires both customers and suppliers to be prepared. The technology available to consumers, retailers, manufacturers, and suppliers is creating the need for faster, cheaper and more transparent solutions.

From February 26 – 28, 2018, Connect 2018 will welcome presenters from a number of high profile companies at the cutting-edge of Supply Chain, e-commerce, and technology innovations to discuss how to win in an e-commerce, digital and omnichannel world and how to strategically leverage the latest technologies and tools available.  

This year’s session topics range from the e-commerce flywheel, to blockchain technology, to using military optical systems to reduce quality checks, to leveraging data and the IoT, to how FDM retailers are shifting the in-store experience to better compete in an omnichannel world, to how business and government together are creating jobs and transforming inner cities driven by e-commerce.
