The launch of ECR Community Review of Current Practices in Category Management 2020 is supported by a webinar series – with one happening in January, February and March of 2021

These webinars promote the Review and allow contributors to discuss their case studies. We invite all retailers, suppliers, service providers, academics, media, associations to attend these free webinars.

The Review & Webinars are the first steps in establishing a global #ECRCatManNetwork. It is of benefit for local companies, multinationals and category management practitioners throughout the world to participate in this movement from an early stage.
