Costco Forum

Costco continues to find ways to generate additional sales growth and margin/profit opportunities and reinvest a portion of the resulting financial benefits back into the business to drive member value. We believe this relentless focus on member value will help sustain strong performance over the medium/long term.

In advance of Costco’s Supplier Day, CRC will host a Costco Forum in downtown Bellevue, WA on Wednesday, September 12th from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm to review the company’s recent performance metrics, key challenges and opportunities facing suppliers, and provide some action items to take back to your team.

You will be among over 100 attendees from a wide range of supplier companies and categories that are looking to find the right formula to capture growth at Costco and the overall retail channel.

Our goal with this conference is to answer your strategic and tactical questions that will better equip your Costco team across all functions heading into 2019 (sales, marketing, analytics, insights, finance, and supply chain). In addition to attending the presentations, you will also get the chance to network with your peers and the experts that we have brought together.

*Initial registration is limited to members of CRC’s Traditional Retail Council only
