AGENDA

As always, xChange 2018 kicks off with a Nulogy sponsored social event and welcome reception.

Speakers: Jason Tham & Kevin Wong

Nulogy CEO, Jason Tham, and COO, Kevin Wong, kick off xChange 2018 with a keynote on the major forces influencing the external manufacturing world, and how the Nulogy platform is evolving to ensure brands’ and suppliers’ success in navigating an increasingly volatile environment.

Speaker: Adrian Gonzalez

Is the first step to becoming a successful company of tomorrow unlearning supply chain management? — that is, unlearning “the way we’ve always done things” because it’s no longer relevant or effective in addressing today’s supply chain challenges?

Even the term “chain” implies fixed, linear, rigid — things that are the exact opposite of today’s operating reality, where trading partner networks, business processes, and customer expectations (among many other things) are more fluid and constantly changing. What needs to be unlearned? What are the biggest hurdles in the way? What actions should companies take today to begin the great unlearning? Why does it matter? Adrian will address those questions and more in this timely and informative presentation.

Speakers: Gautam Gupta, Chris Nutley, Neil Ackerman

While some see eCommerce as a challenge, others see it as an opportunity. This panel discussion will uncover some of the challenges facing CPGs and their suppliers with regards to eCommerce and omni-channel fulfillment and how they have successfully overcome these challenges and become successful through both online and in-store channels.

Speaker: David Warrick

In this fast-paced, globalized market, CPG Brands and their outsourcing partners need to rethink the supply chain to respond to a rapidly changing consumer environment. What changes are supply chain leaders making to keep up? How are they able to increase responsiveness, reliability and quality all without increasing costs?

As the Global Supply Chain General Manager for Microsoft, David Warrick will discuss how Microsoft has optimized their supply chain to meet consumer demands, the role digitization plays, and the opportunities for brands and suppliers to collaborate on a common platform to unleash the power of agility.

Speakers: Adrian Gonzales (Moderator) – Panel: Vèronique Gravel (L’Oreal),
James Houghton (Nova Pack), Patrick McGovern (Bell Carter Packaging), David Warrick (Microsoft)

CPG brands face enormous pressure to improve their On Time In Full rates, as major retailers shorten delivery windows and increase penalties for late or early order shipments. To achieve this, CPG brands need to establish trust and improve collaboration with their outsourced supply chain partners. But how do brands and suppliers build that trust and work together to meet retailer demands? During this industry panel discussion, major CPG brands and their suppliers discuss the road to a new kind of partnership, one that empowers both parties to not only achieve their business goals but adapt and grow within a new economic environment that offers unprecedented opportunities.

Speakers: Julian Bossong (South Atlantic Packaging), Dave Mabon (former Genco COO)

Acquisitions and mergers are becoming increasingly common in the supply chain industry with organizations wanting to grow their business and expand their services and offering to their customers. However, many challenges can arise when scaling your operations. In this panel discussion, our panelists will discuss how they were able to overcome these challenges to effectively and efficiently scale their businesses.

Speaker: Carl Meville

In the recently released tri-annual ‘State of the Industry Report’, the CPA provides a very thorough, deep dive into major trends currently impacting the contract packaging industry. The report’s author, Carl Melville, will walk us through some of the most interesting findings from the report including the seismic shift driving market growth, the evolution of technology and the impact this has on contract packagers and their CPG customers.

Nulogy is committed to delivering and designing user friendly solutions that help strengthen trust between CPG Brands and suppliers. One of the ways we do this is by working with our customers to incorporate feedback when building and designing new solutions and features. The Product Design Fair will be an interactive session where Nulogy’s Product Designers will ask you to participate in various activities to help incorporate your preferences and feedback into future solution designs.

The PackStar Award winners will be announced and celebrated at the PackStar Awards Dinner.
