An event designed to help supply chain business leaders imagine the future, the Supply Chain Insights Global Summit is a unique opportunity to network, gain unique insights and learn from others. Now in its fifth year, the design of the event is to provide an intimate environment to catalyze business conversations between supply chain leaders. The 2017 conference will be live-streamed globally, and all of the content will be shared using the standards of open research. On this website, we share presentations, testimonials, photos and videos from prior conferences along with information on the 2017 event. The speakers for the 2017 event will be hand-picked and slotted into the agenda against five themes: innovation/leadership, economic forecasts for 2030, Supply Chains to Admire research, making the digital pivot, and building excellence in global supply chain teams. We hope to see you there!
