Heads of supply chain, eCommerce and omnichannel from the most respected names in retail will discuss and debate the evolution of the industry and the role of supply chain within it, at eft’s Dynamic Distribution Disruption (D3) Summit on 13-14 July 2016 at the Marriott Brooklyn Bridge in New York.

As eCommerce changes the way retailers strategize their supply chains, the D3 Summit will help retailers build their own supply chain roadmap to omnichannel success through the use of case-studies presented by retailers themselves, as well as through panels and round table discussions.

“With eft’s success with the Chief Supply Chain Officer Forum – featured annually in Forbes – the retail industry asked us to create a Summit specifically catering to the incredible challenges and innovations taking place in their industry” said Priyanka Asera, eft’s Head of Retail and former McKinsey analyst.

“We’ve worked hand-in-hand with dozens of major retailers including Macy’s, Target, Neiman Marcus, Toys ‘R’ Us, and Burberry to create an agenda that is truly a roadmap for achieving supply chain success in an omnichannel world. This summit is for senior strategists that really want to get to the heart of how to make a supply chain decision that will align with the objectives of their respective organization.”

One of the speakers at the D3 Summit, David Walmsley, Global Director of Digital at Marks & Spencer (200-yr old British multinational retailer), will be presenting a case-study on how M&S manages its inventory across multiple channels. After recently launching local-currency eCommerce websites in the United States and Canada, Walmsley is all geared up for the D3 Summit to share and learn best-practices in supply chain. Upon asking what he looks forward to the most, Walmsley said, “It is the cross-section of views in the room, where there would be people from a more broadly-based retail experience like myself, and the more hard-core supply chain guys, as well as those in the pure digital space like Google, that is going to make for a very stimulating discussion.”

Speakers at D3 also include:

Scott Spata, VP Supply Chain, The Home Depot
Brett Goffin, Head of Industry –Retail, Google
Marie Robinson, COO, Michael Kors
Marisa Allen, Head of Omnichannel Strategy7-Eleven,
Jeff Girard, SVP, Logistics DSW Inc.,
