We've found new ways of working, done more with less, and have gained critical insights that must be shared. LINK2021 is the place to come together after a remarkable year of change and demand to learn from each other and discover new solutions to maximizing efficiency. Flexibility, speed, and performance are at an all-time premium to stay competitive in the marketplace and get the work done.

LINK2021: The Retail Supply Chain Conference gathers top executives in retail supply chain to network and learn. This premier forum addresses your challenges with retailer breakouts and roundtables, industry executive general sessions, executive insights, and a bustling Expo Experience, so you can take back fresh ideas and best practices to your company.

RILA's LINK2021 Conference will be the first opportunity to reunite the retail supply chain community, in person!

Back in February, LINK2020 broke attendance records, but LINK2021 will break a new kind of record: The first opportunity to bring your team together, in person, with industry peers, solution provider partners, and retail leaders who keep supply chains moving. Don’t miss your opportunity to be part of the conversation!

This year we are co-locating with the Retail Asset Protection Conference to bring together even more retail companies. Already, companies are bringing teams from BOTH supply chain and asset protection departments to ensure they are up-to-date on the leading practices and technologies in the industry. Check the list to see who is attending!
