Mack to moderate his 10th DSN Industry Issues Summit Panel

When a panel of industry leaders gather to discuss key features of lasting business partnerships later this week as part of DSN’s 22nd Industry Issues Summit, the discussion will be guided by someone who is no stranger to the event. 

Thursday’s panel, “Building Strategic Supplier and Retailer Partnerships” will be moderated by Dan Mack, founder of Mack Elevation, who is marking his 10th year moderating at the annual event.

They will discuss how retailers and suppliers can work together to build transparent and reliable partnerships built on a mutual investment in each other’s businesses. To register for the event, click here

“Suppliers are making more thoughtful choices about which retailers are best positioned to partner with moving into the future. Retailers must be committed to building deeper and even more trusting relationships than ever before,” Mack said. “This panel discussion will be invaluable for both suppliers and retailers who are looking to create deeper, enduring relationships with their top business partners.”

Mack’s panel closes out the four-day event, which kicked off with a keynote on Monday from NYU Stern School of Business professor and author Amy Webb. It continued Tuesday with a panel discussion moderated by McKesson’s Nimesh Jhaveri about the pandemic’s impact on retail. Wednesday features a panel moderated by Hamacher Resource Group’s Dace Wendland on retail’s role in patient care.
