PG's Connected Consumer Summit: A Great Success!
By Joseph Tarnowski
I just wanted to write a quick note to thank all of the retailers who participated in Progressive Grocer's Connected Consumer Summit as well as its sponsor, Verizon Wireless, for a truly outstanding event, held Oct. 8 and 9 in Chicago. The discussion covered all aspects of consumer-facing technology, was very informative and -- along with dinner the evening before -- a lot of fun.
Keep an eye out for our November Webcast, which will continue the discussion with three of the retailer participants from the roundtable, as well as an upcoming print feature which will share highlights of the discussion.
Here are a couple of photos from the event.
