We hope that you are as excited as we are about the 1WorldSync 2017 Annual User Group, Americas co-located with GS1 Connect, June 19th & 20th taking place in Las Vegas! With a couple weeks to spare before this highly anticipated event, 1WorldSync is busy rolling out the green carpet for you.

It’s officially the era of trusted product content and we guarantee an amazing show in an amazing city! We will give your  team the cutting edge, with sessions from the industry’s leading speakers, the hottest topics and some world-class networking.

Here are some insights around the speakers, topics and collaboration sessions  that will make it all the more easier for you to make your grand entrance.  

Big Questions: Why, What, How and Where?

Over the past year there has been a significant amount of discussion on these 4 main questions.   Throughout the event, our speakers and sessions will help answer to these questions, and provide you best practices & direction to change the conversation within your organization.  So lets get started:

The event itself spans 2 days, starting at 11 am PDT on Monday June 19th with our Master of Ceremony – Ken Yontz welcoming the audience and diving into the first question: Why.  Why are we on this product content journey?  Why are we being asked for and providing more content?  Why are specific regulations being passed and what is behind them?  Who is asking for the information and why?  Why is there a growing need for Product Content?

How Reynolds New PIM Implementation Cultivated Trust in Data and Decisions

We then will take a break for a networking lunch, and come back to a session led by Vernetta McDowell from Reynolds Consumer Products focusing on the next question, What.  What has Reynolds done to address the growing need for product content and how have they partnered with 1WorldSync and others to develop a solution that enables them to scale to meet the growing content demands from their customers.

Collaboration Is Everything

The Collaboration breakouts are next.  A feature from the 2016 Annual User Group, the audience will break out into 3 different groups and engage in 3 round robin topics designed around the 3rd question, How.  3 different sets of thought leaders from organizations like Dot Foods, The Kellogg Company, Smucker, Target, Tyson, and Walgreens will lead conversations on how do we get better?  

How can we be more transparent in what content is available vs. what content is needed?  How can organizations internally source content more effectively?  How can organizations better build process and governance to deliver product content more efficiently?   With the goal at the end of the conversation to be a starting point for the biggest how question: How can we as a community drive towards more efficient solutions and processes that meet the expanding content needs of the end consumers?

Teleflex: Generating Value Beyond Compliance With UDI

After a quick break we will move back into the main conference area, where Mark Hoyle from Teleflex will provide insights into how they are addressing the need within the Healthcare industry around UDI compliance and where 1WorldSync has help them meet the content need.

Win Consumers On the Path to Purchase With 1WorldSync

Day 2 Kicks off with some of the 1WorldSync Community Co-chairs sharing their insights into past activity, and their vision for where they want the groups to grow.  Some of the co-chairs providing insights are Greg Zwanziger from SuperValu (Recipient Share Group Chair) and Mark Whitman from Intalere (Healthcare Industry Group Chair).  We also have Eric Ginsberg from Sazerac and Tim McDaniel from Constellation Brands introducing of our latest industry group, Total Beverage Alcohol.

Top 5 Reasons to Attend 1WorldSync 2017 Annual User Group, Americas!

At 1WorldSync, we are dedicated to providing our community with collaborative platforms for open engagement and industry alignment. Input from the 1WorldSync community drives our efforts to provide collaborative platforms that deliver information and interactions that benefit our customers. 1WorldSync 2017 Annual User Group (AUG), Americas is a collaborative event that provides this platform for our customers to engage, interact and share best practices, community needs, and encourage user-lead information sharing. In preparation for this worthy event, below are my personal Top 5 Reasons to attend this year’s 1WorldSync 2017 Annual User Group, Americas held in Las Vegas, NV on June 19-20, 2017.

  1. Vegas here we come! Site of the Elvis comeback, the Bellagio fountains, amazing food, and even the Statue of Liberty and Eiffel Tower!  Okay to be fair the last 2 aren’t the “real” ones, but you get the gist.  It is an amazing event hosted in an amazing city.
  2. How you network in Vegas, doesn’t have to stay in Vegas….  In the past, I connected with peers I knew, created new ones and formed relationships that helped us learn from one another.  AUG allows us as a community to explore opportunities and discover solutions that impact industries while allowing organizations across multiple industries the opportunity to network.
  3. Not married? You will be married…to Product Content.  In regards to product content, 1WorldSync strives to achieve excellence in providing accurate and trustworthy product content to our customers, and understanding where the industries as a whole are moving and our customer’s needs has helped to refine our company’s path. As we share authentic, trusted content with customers and consumers, we empower them to make the right choices, purchases, health and lifestyle decisions.
  4. Where the Sky’s the Limit.  After participating in multiple Annual User Group events, I am continuously surprised to learn something new from our attendees and their presentations.  It amazes me still that having been a part of this event  for 10+ years, each year generates more innovation and new perspectives.  Becoming educated on standard changes, innovations within the marketplace and how this impacts our organization always provided value and insight.
  5. The city of Bright Lights and a Bright Future for the 1WorldSync Community.  One of the things you can depend on being discussed during our Annual User Groups are seeing what innovations & solutions 1WorldSync is developing in order to continue to improve capabilities for our community members. Our plans demonstrate our commitment to our customers and the path we are working towards to continuously add value to the 1WorldSync Community.  

With the leadership and guidance of our customers, I promise that this year’s Annual User Group, Americas will be a power packed two-day event filled with collaboration, engagement and best practice learning.
