Agentrics, a leading solution provider to the world's largest retailers and their suppliers, today announced that Agentrics Week 2007 (http://www.agentricsweek.com), its annual customer conference, will be held in Paris, October 1-5. This year's theme is "Uniting the Global Retail Value Chain to Meet Demand Responsibly" as attendees will learn and share best practices to enhance retail operations and support advancing requirements for corporate social responsibility.
"Retailers face mounting pressure to continually strengthen their socially responsible practices, such as ensuring food safety, conserving energy and encouraging suppliers to increase responsible business practices," said Chris Sellers, Agentrics chief executive officer. "Agentrics Week 2007 will bring together global retail executives to learn and share practices that will help them become more successful as they explore innovative ideas that address current and coming business challenges and trends."
The first three days of Agentrics Week 2007 are for all attendees and will feature keynote sessions, multiple topic tracks and networking events. Guest speakers confirmed for Agentrics Week 2007 include GDSN Inc. President Sally Herbert and European Commission Enterprise General Director Eva Gerhards, as well as executives from many Agentrics customers. Executive board and operating committee meetings will be held Oct. 4 - 5 and will be hosted by Carrefour, the world's second largest retailer.
