Mission of Pulse
Pulse aims to help improve the profitability of omnichannel retailing and their suppliers by providing actionable information and insights on leveraging physical and digital assets to serve consumers.
Retailers and suppliers will engage in a comprehensive look at tech-driven shopper insights, consumer trends and integrated technology solutions applied to merchandising, marketing and the associated supply chain. The program includes keynote sessions, boardroom discussions by industry thought leaders and one-to-one meetings with top suppliers of technology and related offerings.
To ensure the most useful experience for all participants, attendance for Pulse will be limited to 200 senior marketing, sales and technology professionals from retailer and CPG companies.
Pulse requires separate registration—but includes full FMI Connect registration at no additional charge.
