Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
Zilliant, an optimization company that helps businesses make better pricing and sales decisions, announced today a partnership with UnleashWD, the premier innovation event for the wholesale distribution industry. Zilliant invites wholesale distributors and their channel partners to attend the UnleashWD Innovation Summit to be held October 29-30 in Chicago. The partnership includes a webinar on applying innovation and thought leadership to customer relationships and discounted attendance for Zilliant customers who register to attend the summit.
Zilliant will bring their domain expertise to the UnleashWD stage as they host one of six "Lift and Shift" sessions. Lift and Shift is the UnleashWD concept of taking the best ideas from other industries and applying them to wholesale distribution. The sessions feature sponsors as active participants, which is one way that UnleashWD differentiates itself from other conferences. The Zilliant session will focus on how to integrate predictive technologies to remain competitive in the wholesale distribution industry.
"We had such a great experience at the inaugural innovation summit in 2012, that we decided to become a full sponsor in 2013," said Eric Hills, senior vice president and chief evangelist at Zilliant. "We’re excited to partner with UnleashWD to help distributors innovate and bring transformative thinking to their businesses."
UnleashWD will feature 18 innovative storytellers from outside the wholesale distribution industry. Modeled after the global force TED and its storytelling format, UnleashWD storytellers will provide examples of adding value to a business through inspiring 18-minute sessions on topics such as Innovation, Leadership, Business Model Design and Company Culture.
"Zilliant is the type of cutting edge technology company that can provide distributors with the tools necessary to remain relevant," said Dirk Beveridge, founder of UnleashWD. "Zilliant is exactly the type of partner we had in mind when creating UnleashWD, and I am excited to help distributors create new value for their business by leveraging Zilliant’s innovative solutions."
