1WorldSync, the industry leader in global product data management and data pool solutions, today announced that the 1Worldsync 2013 User Group Meeting will be held June 10-11 at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas. This annual user event will bring together over 250 leaders and managers from the 1WorldSync global community and be held in tandem with the GS1 Connect 2013 Conference, which runs June 10-13.
“The 2013 User Group will be the forum that brings together the world's leading practitioners of product data management and data synchronization,” said Dan Wilkinson, 1WorldSync managing director of the Americas region. “We've designed the two days to maximize user networking, best practice sharing, and the discussion and assessment of the most important trends in the industry.”
Large and small companies from the CPG/Retail, Foodservice, Hardlines and Healthcare sectors will be represented, including data source and recipient organizations. The agenda will feature keynote presentations, user-led case studies, panel discussions, work group breakout sessions, and technical roadmap discussions. Key themes will focus on how leading companies are leveraging a single point of truth to take control and meet the explosion of product data needs coming from consumers, trading partners and regulators.
“1WorldSync designs its user group meeting to allow for a great balance of networking, thought leadership and information sharing,” said Greg Zwanziger, director of enterprise item management and e-commerce business development at SUPERVALU. “In addition to the valuable content, we see the meeting as the best opportunity for SUPERVALU to spend time with our trading partners and network with counterparts from other recipient companies.”
In conjunction with the User Group Meeting, 1WorldSync will hold its third-annual Power of 1 Awards reception on the evening of Monday, June 10. Exclusively for 1WorldSync user group attendees, this ceremony honors the most influential companies and individuals in the industry for their work in areas such as product data management and data quality.
Registration for the user group meeting is $250. This fee is in addition to GS1 Connect 2013 conference registration. The main programming for the GS1 annual conference will run June 12-13 and also will be held at the JW Marriott in San Antonio.
