NCOF 2007 Preview

We at Multichannel Merchant are proud to present the National Conference on Operations & Fulfillment (NCOF) — so proud, in fact, that we’ve decided to create a supplement highlighting a few of the show’s speakers and sessions. If you’re planning to attend the conference, consider this a sneak preview. And if you can’t make NCOF, the articles and interviews here will show you a bit of what you’ll be missing…so that you’ll make every effort to attend next year.
