RILA’s Supply Chain Conference Makes Timely Return

Retail Supply Chain Execs to Gather at LINK2022 Feb. 20-23

After almost two years of meeting virtually, the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA)’s annual conference for retail’s leading supply chain executives LINK2022: The Retail Supply Chain Conference – will meet in person February 20-23, 2022 in Dallas, Texas.

In the time since these retail leaders have gathered in person, the supply chain has experienced unprecedented disruption. LINK2022 will take place on the heels of a holiday season unlike any other and amidst historic federal investments in our nation’s infrastructure, setting the scene for essential problem-solving, compelling knowledge sharing, and unmatched benchmarking opportunities among industry peers and experts.

“We are so thrilled to welcome retail supply chain executives and practitioners back in person this February. The challenges retailers have had to navigate from shore to shelf over the last almost two years now, will leave no shortage of things to discuss,” said RILA Vice President of Supply Chain Jess Dankert. “We’re confident this year’s program will be one of our best yet and certainly one not to miss.”

This year’s program will feature sessions covering the most essential themes within the supply chain context, including automation, innovation; omnichannel and end-to-end supply chain; distribution, fulfillment, and last mile; sustainability and ESG; transportation and logistics; and workforce/talent.
Featured speakers include:
  • Signet Jewelers CEO Virginia Drosos
  • IKEA North America Chief Supply Chain Officer Tanja Dysli
  • ULTA Beauty Chief Supply Chain Officer Amiee Thomas
