In partnership with GS1, we synthesized the event’s key discussions and dove deeper into the following areas:

  • The choice industry faces. It can integrate ‘dumb products’ or transform them into smart devices along the supply chain. Connecting networks of internet-enabled objects or automated processes opens the door to serious security risks and questions.
  • Regulations, such as the INFORM Consumers Act, aim to verify seller trust, but the question remains: who is the ultimate beneficiary? Is it the consumer? The marketplace? The brand? All three?
  • Embedding dynamic attributes in product labels can significantly improve consumer experiences with a brand or retailer, providing a wealth of new information and connections. But it requires context and packaging innovation.

The report includes

  • Event key takeaways
  • A deep-dive exploration into Digital Identity in Manufacturing and Digital Identity in Supply Chains
  • An exploration into The INFORM Act and vendor identity
  • An expert view into the risks and future of supply chain
