Join us for our seventh annual Walmart Forum at the Embassy Suites in Bentonville to discuss Walmart’s current strategies that are impacting our supplier partners. You will be among over 200 attendees from a wide range of supplier companies and categories that are looking to find the right formula to capture growth at Walmart and the overall retail channel.
Fresh on the heels of our participation at Walmart’s investor meeting, CRC will share the key takeaways from Walmart’s management team and most importantly our perspective on how to strategically position your business to respond to the company’s forward-looking strategies and initiatives.
The goal of the Forum is to answer your strategic and tactical questions that will better equip your Walmart team across all functions heading into 2019 (sales, marketing, analytics, insights, finance, supply chain). In addition to attending the presentations, attendees will also have the chance to network with your peers and the experts that we have brought together.
