In a matter of months, COVID-19 has catalyzed enormous transformations within the Retail and Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) Industries. Both sectors have had to quickly adapt to immense disruption – whether that has meant accommodating changes in consumer behavior, establishing direct-to-consumer practices, navigating suspended or interrupted supply chains, or managing a remote workforce during lockdown.
Join us at TechXchange: Retail / CPG to discover what it takes to prepare your organization for this new era of commerce. Through thought-provoking keynote presentations and interactive panel sessions, attendees will gain a thorough understanding of how to reinvent their operating models, understand and predict new patterns of consumer behaviors, and scale through disruption.
As we move towards the next normal, Innovation will be more important than ever to address consumer needs and drive growth. The discovery and application of emerging technologies will be key to survival. Now is the time to harness the power of innovation.
