GS1 Connect 2017 How to Do Business With...

How to Do Business With...

See who hosted sessions in 2017.


Over 50% of our attendees are returning each year.

Here's why:

"GS1 Standards can seem overwhelming for a small business with limited resources, but GS1 Connect is THE conference that brings it all together. Not only can you get basic training, but also hear how your trading partners are using GS1 standards to do business with YOU. The opportunities to meet with them in person at "How to do Business with" sessions and trading partner roundtables are invaluable!”

“I was impressed with the number of retailers in attendance. This is the place to be to meet trading partners face to face.”

"Hosting the Trading Partner Roundtable was fantastic this year. Not only did current suppliers stop by to visit, there were also visits from those manufacturers who expressed interest to become a supplier. We were pleasantly surprised by the visits of other retailers outside our industry to exchange ideas on global issues.”

"We want to be able to have face-to-face contact with our current customers. It’s a good way for us to be in one building with a lot of customers as opposed to traveling all over the U.S. We can meet with them, talk with them, and hopefully develop a broader reach for our company.”
