Rain and wind. In a decidedly uncharacteristic fashion, San Diego welcomed INSPIRE® 2016 attendees stormily: with trees bowing under the force of strong winds and the stone pavements around the Park Hyatt Aviara being pelted by determinedly fierce rain. Accidents in the San Diego area were widespread; news reports documented the rarity of the weather conditions: wintry cold, with a hurricane-style atmosphere.
I noted two common themes during my first visit to RetailNOW®: trusted partner and EMV. “Trusted partner”—always resulted in a very positive conversation, but EMV was used as if it were a four-letter word. Everyone seemed to be pulled into the EMV vortex of uncertainty due to supply chain roadblocks, constantly changing requirements, and lack of correct information. Those that were able to remain calm and focus on the bigger security picture are hopefully reaping the trusted partner benefits today.
