The topic of health and wellness remains top of mind for consumers and retailers across all channels are focused on helping consumers lead a healthier lifestyle. Whether it’s food and beverages, supplements or items such as skin care and shampoo, the lifestyle is addressed by a plethora of products found in all departments. We’ll share what trends you should be watching and how retailers can further tap into this way of life for so many shoppers.

The pandemic caused havoc with the nation’s supply chain and exposed many areas of weakness. We’ll take a look at some of the changes made to the supply chain during the year, what new technologies are available to retailers and suppliers and the role government needs to play to ensure products continue flowing smoothly across the U.S. 

12:45 PM - 1:15 PM

New developments in technology continue to impact every aspect of the shopping experience. From moving products from distribution centers to stores to ensuring store shelves are stocked with products and how consumers ultimately shop for and buy their items, technological evolution is a fact of life in today’s retail environment. We’ll discuss what new tech is in place today and what’s on the horizon in 2024.
