Managing large events is a major challenge for manufacturers and retailers the world over. In the UK, the summer of 2012 was a period that promised to severely challenge the supply chain. What was learnt provides the industry internationally with knowledge and insight to help plan for similar events. We spoke to the leading UK retailers to find out how they planned for 2012, what action they took, what the outcome was and how they plan to manage events in future.
To create effective plans for your supply chain, you need to understand what the future holds for the major retailers, as well as the world’s largest economies. In this presentation we have brought together IGD’s global retailer and market forecasts to provide the intelligence and insight needed to prepare for 2015 and beyond.
Promotions are now key to communicating value and are becoming an increasingly important part of strategy. Based on a global survey with over 200 suppliers in all five continents, this presentation will give you the insight on how suppliers are building capabilities for excellence in promotions management and top tips to benchmark your response.
With an increase in the number, frequency and depth of promotions, retail supply chains face tremendous challenges. Last minute changes cause reduced forecast accuracy and unless supported by a well orchestrated implementation plan, it could result in ‘overstocks’ and complex clearance plans at the end of a promotion. Read this presentation to gain insight on how you must respond to the challenges retail supply chains face.
