Don’t miss these four experiences at one of the largest retail supply chain conferences of the year.
Our second trade show of the year is a big one! RILA LINK 2020, one of the largest retail supply chain conferences, is being held February 23-26, 2020 in Dallas, Texas and will gather top retail executives to network and learn. This premier conference will address your supply chain pain points with breakout sessions, executive insights and an enormous exhibition experience to meet and greet with the top supply chain technology vendors looking to help you stay competitive in the marketplace.
The show packs a punch with over 300 cutting edge solution providers in the expo, 24+ breakout sessions and more than 10 keynote speakers in just a few short days, so it’ll be hard to put together an agenda that fits your unique needs.
Here are the top 4 things RILA LINK 2020 attendees won’t want to miss at this year’s show:
1. Get into the swing of things at RILA LINK’s Annual Golf Tournament
Sunday, February 23 | 8:15am-4:15pm | Bridlewood Golf Club
This is an event our ProShip team has participated in every year. Take the bus from the Gaylord a day before the show starts for some networking on the golf course, and enjoy the beautiful views at Bridlewood Golf Club, where you’ll compete in a round of golf and indulge in an included breakfast and lunch.
Lucky for you, golf is complimentary for all retail attendees; all retailers will be confirmed to play once registered. Exhibitors and sponsors will need to confirm one player from their company that wants to play, if you’d like to register multiple players you may, however only one or two may be confirmed to play.
2. Add some of the most eye-opening General and Breakout Sessions to your Show Calendar
A. General Session: Executive Insights with REI
Monday, February 24 | 2:00pm-2:20pm
We’re excited to promote REI’s strong belief in sustainability and the steps they take to achieve green practices. Sustainability is no longer “nice to have,” it’s a critical element of retail today, especially as younger generations demand responsible business practices of the brands they favor. Bill Best, Vice President of Supply Chain and Logistics for Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI), discusses how the drive for sustainability is a way of life at REI. Learn how the retailer is pushing the envelope and discover real, practical ways to apply their experiences to your supply chains.
B. General Session: Executive Insights with Petco
Monday, February 24 | 2:20pm-2:40pm
We’re also excited to see Petco on the stage at RILA LINK this year! Online or in-store, Petco has been the go-to destination for millions of pet owners for over 50 years. Hear Ed Oldham, Senior Vice President of Supply Chain at Petco discuss insights from re-imagining their supply chain to be even more responsive for a new generation of customers.
C. Breakout Session: Why Urban Fulfillment Needs to be a Key Component of Your Supply Chain Strategy
Monday, February 24 | 3:45pm-4:30pm
As consumers increasingly demand faster delivery, retailers and consumer products companies are looking to regional distribution models to meet these changing needs. Warehouses closer to the end consumer can better serve the connected customer, particularly in the urban market. With same-day delivery on the horizon, and next-day already here, it’s time to tackle the challenges that this new distribution model requires. Hear from Nordstrom and Deliv in this powerful session.
