All industries are represented at Inforum, and while healthcare typically demands a lot of attention, the show floor is always packed with representatives from fashion, food process, equipment, and other manufacturing and distribution organizations. With so much traction in the M3 space over the last 12 months, it’s no surprise that technology updates and case studies on CloudSuite Food and Beverage, M3 Food and Beverage, M3 Distribution, and Birst dominate the Inforum 2018 show schedule.

Last week we covered highlights for attendees operating on Lawson. This week, we rounded up the top M3 sessions you won’t want to miss during your time in D.C.
