Commport Exhibits at GS1 Connect 2018

GS1 Connect 2018 Event

From June 4th-7th 2018 Commport attended and exhibited at GS1 Connect 2018 held at the beautiful JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort & Spa in Phoenix, Arizona.

GS1 Connect is the flag ship conference and trade show held each year by GS1 US. GS1 Connect brings thought leaders together each year for a jam packed agenda focusing on the use of industry standards to improve and “Accelerate” business processes and trading partner relationships.

To that end, some of the unique opportunities that are presented to attendees at GS1 Connect are sessions known as “How to do business with…” and “Trading Partner Roundtables”. These sessions are designed to enable major retailers such as Walmart, Office Depot, Wegman’s, Target and many more to be able to directly communicate with their vendor partners regarding upcoming business process requirements and initiatives which are important to the trading relationship.

The sessions at GS1 Connect are broken into different industry vertical tracks; Grocery, Foodservice, Retail and Healthcare. Each track provides vertical specific learning opportunities about the latest trends and initiatives to businesses operating in each space.  This year’s big cross industry topic was Blockchain and the transformational prospect that blockchain technology is bringing to the business landscape.

As a global network services provider Commport is a big proponent of industry standards to streamline business operations and improve trading partner collaboration through effective communication. Our participation at GS1 Connect is definitely a highlight of the year.
