GS1 Connect - 2019 and 2020

GS1 Connect 2019 took place at the Gaylord Rockies Resort & Convention Center in Denver, Colorado, from June 18 to June 21, 2019. The 1WorldSync Annual User Group also took place at the same location on June 18, 2019.

This year’s industry conference again showcased the best practices of GS1 standards, including the Global Data Synchronization Network (or GDSN). Aligntrac provides solutions for electronically transmitting item information between trading partners via the GDSN.

Aligntrac attended and sponsored the conference this year and had meeting room “Crest 2” in the hotel near the conference exhibits and session area – thanks to all who visited us in the meeting room.

The 2020 conference is returning to Las Vegas, NV and will take place from June 15-18, 2020.

What are the key benefits in going to this event?

One of the best opportunities for companies at this conference is to attend any session run by their customers at the event (e.g. Lowe’s, Walmart, Dot Foods, Wakefern, etc.). You can hear their plans and ask questions of them – most of the retailers/distributors also have round-table sessions where you can have some one-on-one time with them.

The other activity that can be very helpful for companies at this conference is to network with peer companies – they may be in your industry or in a similar situation as your company. You can see what your peers are doing for data sync and what issues they have overcome.
