The Retail Value Chain Federation (RVCF) recently released white papers about the state of retailer-supplier collaboration, featuring candid, unfiltered insights from anonymous senior executives from both retailer and supplier organizations. RVCF is excited to continue the dialogue in the upcoming Town Hall Meeting! State of Retail-Vendor Relationships 2015, being held Thursday, September 24 at 11:30 am EDT.
RVCF Founder Kim Zablocky and RVCF Retail Executive Advisor Victor Engesser will join Supply Chain Digest Editor Dan Gilmore and Compliance Networks CEO Greg Holder to examine SCDigest's New Benchmark Study of Retailers and Their Suppliers as well as SCDigest's New Index to Measure the State of the Relationships.
In addition to a live expert panel discussion, questions from audience members will be taken throughout the 45-minute event. This Town Hall meeting will not only cover the state of collaboration in the retail industry and trends in chargebacks and deductions, but it will also provide a valuable baseline index for measuring the state of trading partner relationships in the future.
RVCF believes these relationships can only improve if we first have an honest assessment of where they stand now and what challenges need to be overcome. All retailers and suppliers who are interested in greater collaboration are encouraged to participate. For more information or to register for the Town Hall Meeting!
