NAW 2014 Executive SummitJanuary 28-30, 2014

- • capitalize on opportunities in e-commerce, mobility, and social media
- • develop a more compelling value proposition and execute it effectively
- • move the marketing function to a position of greater importance in defining your company’s strategic direction, building your brand, and ensuring that you are engaging consistently with your customers across all channels
- • reimagine both your role in the value chain and the structure and functions that comprise your organization.
Over the next three to five years, these existing and future trends will transform the industry, changing the way all distributors interact with customers and suppliers, altering the role of individual functions within the distribution business, and driving the imperative for true business-model innovation.Learn More
