With the theme of “Riding the Wave of E-Commerce Boom – Delivering a Seamless Customer Journey”, this year’s event is the first Summit of GS1 Hong Kong that features the overwhelming trend of e-commerce. The Summit,Asia Pacific’s premier supply chain management event, provides a unique platform for over 500 pioneering leaders and influencers from leading retailers, e-commerce platform, logistics service providers to exchange dynamic discussions and ideas on the latest trend of e-commerce. Distinguished speakers include Under Armour, Alibaba.com Hong Kong Ltd, DHL eCommerce (Hong Kong) Ltd, LF Logistics (Hong Kong) Ltd, etc.

Joseph Phi, Chairman of GS1 Hong Kong says, “This Summit has become a key industry event as witnessed by the number of business executives, supply chain experts and IT practitioners in the audience today as well as those leading various discussions and presentations.”

This year, the Summit covers the topics that focus on four key steering forces, which are supply chain optimisation, supply chain visibility, digital consumers’ connection and building consumer trust, to help capture business opportunities and improve customer experience in the new digital era.

Mr Phi adds, “The record-breaking year of online sales in China has been bewildering. The speed at which e-commerce has grown has affected businesses and consumers but shows the way for more opportunities. More online shopping platforms are requiring the use of GS1 global standard barcodes which means better traceability, comprehensive product information and consumers can trust necessary information for product authentication. Additionally businesses can gather and retrieve data from different sources on a real-time basis and collect consumption behaviour data for evaluation.”

The First ECR Golden Circle Awards 2015 Presentation Ceremony was held during the Summit, with Legislative Councillors The Hon. Frankie Yick and The Hon. Charles Mok as award presenters. This new award programme, organised by Efficient Consumer Response (ECR) Hong Kong and hosted by GS1 Hong Kong, recognises individuals’ outstanding achievement in supply chain management across Hong Kong and Greater China. This year, 12 notable achievers have received recognitions in four categories which are Supply Chain Leader, Digital Marketing Leader, Ecommerce Leader and Technology Innovation Leader.

Anna Lin, JP, Chief Executive of GS1 Hong Kong says, “Not only do all the winners have extensive experience, they have also applied innovation in their fields. We hope that this scheme, by recognising industrial leaders for their great contribution to supply chain management, can foster the experience and knowledge between individuals, and enhance the supply chain standard to the next level.”
