We are delighted to now offer wholesale specific sessions at this year’s DIRECT conference. This event has traditionally focused on the direct-to-consumer market and this will be the first year we offer a wholesale gathering on the second day.
This past fall, we hosted the ShipCompliant Wholesale Gathering in White Plains, NY. This was our first time hosting a wholesale specific event and the feedback was overwhelmingly encouraging! We decided to build off this momentum at this year’s DIRECT conference.
The second day of DIRECT will be broken into sessions. Of these sessions, there will be a variety of opportunities to discuss the wholesale industry. These session options will be as follows:
Keynote – Hear an update from Patrick Barratt, Wholesale Product Manager, and Jason Eckenroth, ShipCompliant CEO and Founder, on the current state of our industry. We will provide a roadmap detailing past trends and what can be expected in the upcoming months. Also, see some of the awesome new features we’ve launched in the past year.
Open Wholesale Workshop – We are available for an open session on any and all wholesale topics. Meet with members of our wholesale team to get your most pressing questions answered, or share stories about how you use ShipCompliant.
Shape our Industry – Join an interactive workshop to discuss how we can work together to improve our industry. We’ll discuss getting products to market faster, COLAs, registrations, Product Registration Online (PRO), price posting, and sales reporting. We will also talk about how you can provide better visibility in the go-to-market process so your organization knows its status in the process. Come with your biggest, craziest, and innovative ideas.
We are thrilled for the opportunity to get together with the wholesale community! We regularly hear about the need for more networking and resource sharing opportunities within the industry. Because of this, we are working to develop a platform for a wholesale community that will continue after the DIRECT conference to meet this ongoing need.
