John Komaromy, Director of Reverse Logistics, Sears Holdings Corporation

Brings Together Partners with the Same Goal

“The Consumer Returns Show brings together partners that all have the same goal of taking back less into retail stores, the reverse supply chain, and services networks. The insights shared, conversations and networking with groups that have the similar interests foster learnings that can be taken back into their respective organizations.”

Nate Omann, Director After-Sales Optimization, Best Buy


“The conference was exceptional. Great networking experience, excellent presentations as well as roundtable sessions.”

Mike Prochaska, Vice President of Supply Chain, Gopher Sport

Alan Pritchard, Instructor, University of Maryland

Learned a HUGE Amount

“Consumer Returns 2017 really covered the breadths of managerial challenges pertaining to handling and managing returns. As an academic, I was not aware of this full breadth of issues related to returns. This conference has not been very helpful to gain new insights regarding what needs to be done.”

Gregory Heim, Associate Professor Mays Business School, Texas A&M University

What Our Sponsors Say About Consumer Returns

I ran out of business cards!

“My goals for attending this conference were to learn more about the issues involved in consumer returns AND to make a lot of new industry contacts. I left with pages of notes and ideas about the processes. I also left with no business cards of my own. The hotel front desk had to Xerox and cut paper cards for me to get through! Now THAT’s a sign of a good conference!”

Jim Alvey, Corporate Development Director, Good360

Very good

“Probably the best conference for our business.”

Samuel Pires, President and Chief Executive Officer, Buylotz Wholesale Liquidations

Overall Very Productive

“Overall, we found the show to be very productive. Having a preliminary list of attendees to reach out to for introductions, having a Meet & Greet at the show, and the breaks and lunch in the exhibit hall really helped to make valuable connections. We will certainly be back next year!”

Mike Wisecup, SVP, Product Management, Pulse Supply Chain Solutions

Great Contacts

“Great organized show and great contacts. Well worth the visit!”

Kevin Johnson, Director of Marketing, Help Lightning

Great learning event for this first timer

“Went to the event to learn and learn I did. Lots of positive sharing of ideas and experiences.”

Time Bridge, Business Development, Newmine

A Success

“As a first time attendee at this conference it was a success from a business perspective for RLG Group. We had several meetings arranged prior to travelling to the conference which yielded business opportunities for us and we were able to listen to industry leaders to understand their views/pain points, etc. which was very informative. We were able to engage/interact with other business leaders that we had not met before which opened up doors for future engagements.”

Kate Casey, Global Key Account Manager, Reverse Logistics Group

Professional and Intimate

“What I liked most about the Consumer Returns conference was the accessibility to the exact industry people that I need to reach. Reverse Logistics and Consumer Returns are such specific business areas, as compared to the larger Supply Chain or Sustainability conferences. It really helps to know that all attendees are focused on the same general area and goals. Consumer Returns made it easy to meet with and speak to everyone on my “must-meet” list. The exhibitor breaks, round tables, and networking events were great for that.”

Jim Alvey, Corporate Development Director, Good360

Fantastic Show!

“I had a great time. Made many new connections. Looking forward to exhibiting next year.”

Nicholas Isasi, EVP, DM Transportation


“This conference was filled with amazing talent, talks, and ideas. Thank you to all that participated and an even bigger thank you to the people who put this show together. See you next year!”

Joseph Valentine, Director of Business Development, PRC Remanufacturing

Solid Contacts

Robert Pignataro, Executive Vice President of Sales, FreeFlow

"It's good to hear that others are going through what we are. We are all working towards the same solutions and Consumer Returns allows us to come together and learn from one another."

David Thomas, Director Inventory Management, Badcock Home Furniture

"Consumer Returns is a must-attend event. People come back every year because it's yearly training for the industry and with all the challenges returns executives in the industry are facing, they should have Consumer Returns at the top of their list for events to attend."

Julian Lee, Strategic Business Management Director, Samsung USA

"Consumer Returns was great. We're in our own niche world and it's nice to see other companies facing the same issues and problems as we are. We've found some great solutions for returns processing and asset recovery to understanding best practices when working with third-parties in the secondary market."

Innocent Hadebe, Process Engineering Manager, TTI Floor Care North America

"Great opportunities to hear content from great companies and speakers. The networking opportunities at Consumer Returns are second-to-none."
