Industry representatives from each of our member communities serve on our Community Advisory Board (CAB) and help us address the supply and demand chain concerns facing today’s trading partners to make sure our conference programming is meeting the needs of our audience. 

If you are a retailer, manufacturer, distributor, group purchasing organization, foodservice operator, or healthcare provider using GS1 Standards, we need you! To learn more about getting involved with the Community Advisory Board,

GS1 Connect Tech Track

An important part of the conference program will be the 20-minute sessions offered in the Standardsville Exhibit Area’s Tech Theater during exhibit hours. These sessions, considered part of the “Tech Track,” are a way for selected companies to offer attendees the opportunity to learn what solutions are available to help identify, capture, and share information accurately about products, business locations, and more.

If your company is interested in sharing a perspective and/or technology solution that offers insights that address supply chain challenges at GS1 Connect 2017, please contact us at
