Value Chain Tech: The Next-Generation of Supply Chain

After three years of massive disruption, the need for innovation and evolution of the supply chain has never been clearer.

This spring, RIS News and Retail Leader are joining forces to debut Value Chain Tech, a unique new annual event focused on the technologies that power the key pillars of value chain success: Agility. Resilience. Collaboration. Sustainability.

This not-to-be missed experience encourages cross-disciplinary and cross-organizational collaboration, introduces new and emerging technologies, and shares cutting-edge case studies, insights, and strategies.

Join us for a three-day experience focusing on the tools and strategies to transform an organization's supply chain from a cost center into the backbone of value creation.

"The coming together of Retail Leader and RIS News to produce the first ever Value Chain Tech event brings both a strategic and execution-minded audience to discuss how to achieve end-to-end retail collaboration. Technology will take center stage as we highlight the solutions that
enable organizations to be more agile, resilient, collaborative and sustainable."
