The Inmar Analytics Forum is approaching quickly — it's taking place April 12-14 here in Winston-Salem — and if you're not one of the more than 750 registered to attend, I urge you to make plans now to join us for this uniquely informative event. You can register here.

The 2016 Forum features an outstanding agenda that includes breakout sessions exploring the most relevant challenges facing the promotions industry today. Highlighting the event are main stage presentations from inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil and Larry J. Merlo, President and CEO of CVS Health. Also represented at the podium will be Wake Forest University; Willard Bishop, an Inmar company; and leading brands and retailers including Kimberly-Clark and Tops Markets.

Of course, Inmar's cadre of experienced analysts, promotion experts and growth strategists will be well represented, as well — sharing insights into using analytics to enhance promotions, deepen shopper engagement and accelerate shopper activation. The promotion tracks have all been carefully structured to ensure that each presentation, panel discussion and roundtable delivers real insight into the practical application of analytics to improve business outcomes. Again, it is an outstanding agenda.

Along with these informational sessions, the Forum will offer a number of opportunities for networking and connecting with industry peers. Particularly special will be the Tuesday evening event at Graylyn — the beautiful and historic manor that was formerly the private estate of one of Winston-Salem's wealthiest and influential families. It will be true Southern hospitality at its finest.

Throughout the event, Inmar solution experts and account managers will be available to meet and discuss opportunities for collaboration. Over the course of the Forum you'll have plenty of chances to hear from, and talk to, the professionals who can help you grow your business.

If you have registered, please be sure and visit the Forum Session Registration website and select the sessions you wish to attend. If you've not yet put us your calendar, I encourage you to visit the Inmar Analytics Forum website and see what you may be in danger of missing.

Welcome Spring and we'll see you in Winston!
