A Focus on Five Themes

Supply Chains to Admire – Which supply chain teams are making progress on the Supply Chain Metrics That Matter? What insights can we learn from the presentations from leaders?

Changing Economies and Changing Times – What will the world look like in 2030? How will changing economies and pressures affect trade? How do we get ready?

Digital Supply Chain Innovation to Power Growth – While the traditional supply chain has been about cost mitigation, the supply chain of the future is a growth engine. How do we adopt new technologies to make the pivot outside-in?

Driving Supply Chain Transformation – Change management is ever present. Join the discussion to gain insights on how other are mitigating the change management issues.

Leadership and Supply Chain Talent – We face uncertain times. Leadership will define winners. What can we learn from history? Join our keynote to gain insights on Leadership Lessons from the White House.
