More than 1,000 supply chain partners will come together in Las Vegas in June to learn how GS1 Standards are helping them meet today’s business challenges and unlock tomorrow’s opportunities.  Held at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, GS1 Connect 2017 will offer live educational programs and interactive exhibits, as well as industry-specific and cross-industry conference sessions—all designed to showcase the benefits of leveraging GS1 Standards for full supply chain visibility.

Keynote speakers will be Jim McKelvey, Square Co-Founder, Inventor, Entrepreneur, Author, and Pilot as well as Katie Linendoll, Technology Expert and Emmy Award-Winning Producer, Known as the “Chic Geek.”  Each will speak to innovation and growth in the modern business environment.  Conference attendees can also pursue industry-specific content in a variety of conference tracks, including grocery, retail, food service and healthcare.

Pre- and post conference, GS1 US® University educational sessions will be held, designed to:

  • Focus on the basics: foundation of unique identification, structure of GTINs, GTIN hierarchies, and GLNs;
  • Build on the fundamentals: implementing barcodes, electronic commerce, EPC®-enabled RFID, and global data synchronization; and
  • Take your understanding of GS1 Standards even further—navigating and applying the General Specifications, EDI, GS1-128 barcodes, and data quality.

Vendors including BLUE Software and 1WorldSync will be on hand to demonstrate how technology such as advanced Label and Artwork Management software and multi-enterprise product information networks can deliver a turnkey solution to leverage GS1 Standards to share data, promote product data accuracy, and optimize operational processes.
