Thought leaders to speak at Retail & Consumer Goods Analytics Summit

The summit will feature Walmart and Kroger executives.

The Retail & Consumer Goods Analytics Summit, now in its sixth year, will take place April 24-26 in Chicago. The event, owned by EnsembleIQ, will focus on providing retail and consumer goods executives with the intelligence needed to “Design the Intelligent Enterprise.”

The summit will feature such industry thought leaders as Clay Johnson, chief information officer at Bentonville, Ark.-based Walmart, and Jamie Lancaster, vice president of the contact center of excellence at Cincinnati-based The Kroger Co., as well as top executives from Facebook, Mars Inc., Campbell Soup Co., GlaxoSmithKline and MadTree Brewing. These and other speakers will share impactful content on artificial intelligence and machine learning, customer engagement, retailer and consumer goods collaboration, and organizational transformation.

The event will also include peer-to-peer networking and curated meet-ups for graduate student-to-executive introductions to foster talent and innovation.

“Our community comes together several times a year to solve the industry’s biggest challenges and drive positive impact for their organizations,” said Albert Guffanti, vice president of the Path to Purchase Institute and Consumer Goods Technology, the latter of which is sponsoring the event. “Our rockstar agenda and attendees are evidence of the continued disruption that no one can tackle alone.”
