RedPrairie Corporation, a global supply chain and retail technology provider, announced today that its two-day EMEA customer conference, RedShift:2012, was the best-attended European event in the company’s history. The event was held in Old Windsor, UK, on 10-11 October.
Nearly 300 supply chain and retail industry executives were present at the thought leadership event, which is aimed at providing insight into the rapidly changing world of commerce and the supply chain. Attendees heard the views and opinions of more than 15 leading retail and distribution experts, including RedPrairie CEO Mike Mayoras’ vision and strategy for keeping commerce in motion for customers around the world.
On the event’s opening day, CEVA Logistics CIO Peter Dew delivered a keynote presentation looking at how the company uses technology as the main enabler for achieving its strategic goals, while Dino Rocos, John Lewis’ operations director, outlined how systems and technology play a critical role in the delivery of the future of retailing, whether as a means of capturing sales, executing transactions or managing the customer experience.
One of the highlights of the second day was provided by Kees Jacobs, global leader all-channel experience at Capgemini, who explained how the company’s objective was to understand how a range of channels and devices are used by shoppers during the shopping journey and how to help retailers benefit from the results.
"With the largest attendance in its history, RedShift:2012 EMEA has been a tremendous success," commented Andrew Kirkwood, senior vice president at RedPrairie. "The move to a two-day event has allowed more thought leaders to share their insights and highlight how imminent challenges could impact the way we manufacture, transport, market, and sell goods and services in the future."
RedShift:2012 also included a RedPrairie solutions exhibition. Key partners present included Microsoft, Honeywell, REPL, Voxware, VoiteQ, Capgemini, ATS, Amsphere, Vocollect, Axsium and Motorola.
