In a world increasingly connected and focused on digital, information systems must continuously evolve in order to process an increasingly vast amount of qualitative, secure data and do so in an increasingly reducing amount of time. CPG manufacturers and retailers are at the heart of these challenges.

This is precisely why AGENA3000 organizes the Connect2Day event. In 2017, you were 300 to participate to our event. Every year, this meeting unites under one roof professionals and experts from multiple sectors, manufacturers, retailers, partners, and start-ups alike.

They can exchange and share their experience, their skills and competences, and their business issues. Connect2Day is the opportunity to exchange and the industry event to develop your network.

We propose to you about 20 content-rich workshops presented by industry based experts renowned in their fields: client testimonials, conferences, demonstrations are all on the agenda. During this eventful day, AGENA3000 will also present to you its latest innovations.

This year again, a rich program awaits you around topical issues such as blockchain technology and how the digital transformation can bring value to enterprises of all sizes.

The success of the Connect2day event depends on 2 major pillars: conferences, roundtables, workshops, experts on the main industry trends as well as a unique networking place between all retail industry players who wish to exchange, share and innovate.

I therefore invite you to Châteauform City Le Cnit, in Paris (France), the 11th of October 2018, for the 3rd edition of our Connect2Day.

    Another Outlook
    From the workshop to the entreprise : The secrets of creativity of the greatest artists applied to our businesses by Grégoire JEANMONOD
    How some of the greatest painters, from Leonardo da Vinci to Andy Warhol, have succeeded to generate new ways, both very personal and singular, to paint their period? And how those new creative postures can inspire nowadays practical and concrete applications in the enterprise?

    Grégoire Jeanmonod attempts to answer those questions, both in a fun and dynamic way, to help us innovate and re-invent our businesses on a day-to-day fashion.

    After studies in Literature and History of Arts, Grégoire Jeanmonod became a journalist 15 years ago. Since then, he’s shared his time between writing articles in the Arts specialized press (« Arts Magazine », « Geo » amongst others) and the preparation of entertainment programs for television on the French TV channel France 2.

    In 2010, he published a book “10 tableaux et leur époque” (10 paintings and their era, Editions Defursen), in which he analyzed 10 major paintings of the history of Arts in the context and light of their political, philosophical, economic backgrounds that fostered their creation.

    His deep conviction is that Art is never as powerful when it resonates with a reality which albeit external, is not entirely foreign to it.
