Trade Show Week: RILA & SERC
This week, PTR participated in two trade shows in Orlando, Florida- RILA’s Link 2019 and SERC.
RILA, the Retail Industry Leaders Association, held it’s annual Retail Supply Chain Conference, entitled ‘LINK 2019’. The event was held at Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center from February 24th through the 27th.
LINK 2019 featured a number of fantastic keynote speakers, including Dick Johnson, President of Foot Locker, Inc., Jeff Pilof, Senior VP of CVS Health, Dean Carter, Chief Human Resources Officer at Patagonia, Abby Wambach, Olympic gold medalist & FIFA Women’s World Cup Champion, just to name a few. They discussed various issues in retail supply chain management.
The event was a great opportunity to obtain the latest industry news, learn from industry experts, share ideas and solutions, and make important connections with some of the largest retailers across the globe.
SERC, the SouthEast Recycling Conference & Trade Show, was also held this week in Orlando, from February 24th through the 26th. It was the 32nd year for this annual event. Industry experts came together to discuss the future of recycling and what affect it will have on businesses. Workshops and discussions focused on topics such as “Sustaining Recycling”, “Using Technology to Improve Organics Recycling”, and “The Changing World of Recycling”.
Both trade shows were enlightening and thought-provoking. We’re excited to attend again in 2020!
