Hosted by GS1 Australia, GS1 Nexus 2019 will bring together around 700 supply chain professionals in Melbourne and Sydney this week to learn about industry predictions and unlock new opportunities for their business with GS1 standards.

Now in its 8th year, the conference will feature speakers from more than 45 companies and organisations, including Coles, Woolworths, Amazon, Google, the Small Business Ombudsman and Business Victoria, the Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA) and the Australasian Railway Association (ARA). Speakers will share the latest insights and expertise to address today’s industry challenges and help shape the future supply chain networks in the digital age.

“This year’s program showcases the latest trends and foundational capabilities businesses need to survive with a focus on traceability systems and optimising data in today’s digital world,” said Marcel Sieira, Head of Customer Engagement & Business Development at GS1 Australia.

“New this year, the conference offers delegates these morning plenary sessions: Technology Disruption in the Supply Chain, Standards in Freight and Logistics, Traceability and Safety Trends and Digital Commerce. In the afternoon delegates can attend four separate streams showcasing key topics in Food & Beverage, Online Retail, Healthcare and Rail.”

GS1 Australia Executive Director and CEO Maria Palazzolo said, “‘As we celebrate our 40th year of supporting Australian industry, we’re excited to bring together businesses and industries at GS1 Nexus 2019 as we explore new concepts and technologies, both local and global, to reduce supply chain complexity, keep costs down and enable clear trading partner exchanges with GS1 standards.”

Delegates will have the opportunity to network and learn in the ‘Marketplace’ exhibit area showcasing the latest products and solutions for those looking to support the implementation of GS1 standards in their business and to discover more about the suite of GS1 Australia services.
