Connectivity Working Group

At the 2011 Winter Conference in Las Vegas, HEDNA conducted a panel made up of suppliers and distributors to discuss "Push vs. Pull."  The lively discussion resulted in the consensus that as our industry evolves, so must our distribution models.

Mission Statement: Define a framework that permits the efficient exchange of rich, detailed and timely shopping results while maintaining a high level of accuracy for the consumer.

During the CWG general session presentation at the Winter Meeting in Las Vegas, December 2012, co-chairs Lisa Muret and Sebastien Leitner outlined the mission, objectives, challenges and next steps for the working group. In addition, thanks to input from the working group team members as well as the larger HEDNA membership, the CWG unveiled two connectivity White Papers: one on the future of shopping, the other on change discovery service.
