The event included executives from Centric and their customers for a series roundtable discussions focused on issues facing the fashion and fast-moving consumer goods industries. Leaders from retail, manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers were among the Centric customer companies that participated in the event.

"Centric provided a forum for networking and sharing ideas that have real impact to my business," said Nicolas Thibault, exclusive brands business unit manager for INTERSPORT France.

We were also able to influence the roadmap of Centric solutions to ensure we achieve our future goals."

- Challenges and concerns faced by fashion and fast-moving consumer goods companies.
