ARLINGTON, VA — (November 20): While most attendees at International 2007 will be mulling over the latest innovations in consumer technology on the show floor – a small but elite cadre of business executives will be studying the inner workings of the global machine that gets goods, on time, clear across the planet to retail and into the hands and hearts of the consumer.
This part of the consumer electronics business is known as supply chain and it will be the topic of this year’s CES spotlight business event, Consumer Electronics Supply Chain Academy (www.CESupplyChain.com), two days of conference sessions held in conjunction with CES on January 10-11.
The Academy (CESCA) features executives from Best Buy, Circuit City, Dell, Sony, UPS, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, TradeCard, I2, OATSystems, Sterling Commerce and numerous others exploring the issues of RFID, returns, forecasting, inventory management, retail event promotion, freight and transportation, and global logistics. The session will also explore news-breaking issues such as recycling (as presented by Hewlett-Packard) and recalls (as presented by Dell).
