E360 Annual Conference

This year’s E360 Annual Conference was held at our new Helix Innovation Center on the University of Dayton campus, Emerson’s one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art 40,000 square foot facility that simulates five real-world industry environments and features three learning labs.

Attendees enjoyed hands-on experiences in the center’s state-of-the art kitchen and market modules and touring the five real-word simulation modules at The Helix. This three-day interactive event featured timely general session presentations and collaboration sessions — all focused on the latest technologies and systems used in supermarkets, convenience stores, small format retail and restaurants.
