YEO Conference To Include Session on Blockchain

Blockchain has huge implications for supply chain logistics, food safety monitoring and more.

The seventh annual Young Executives Organization (YEO) Conference, which will be held May 4-6 in Nashville, is set to include a breakout session on the hot topic blockchain.

YEO Board Chairman, Jeremie Myhren, chief information officer for Road Ranger convenience stores, will lead the technology track session, titled, “What is Blockchain and how will it affect you?”

Blockchain has become a hot topic. The concept became well known for its payment applications, like the famed Bitcoin, and has grown from there.

It has huge implications for supply chain logistics, loyalty programs, customer data management, food safety monitoring and more. This session will detail how blockchain works and what c-store retailers need to know.
