We believe that facilitating debate on the future trends of the supply chain profession and its impact on the world is central to our purpose of advancing the profession. We arrange a small number of live forums each year to enable supply chain practitioners to build cross-industry connections and share learnings across the community.

We’ve developed a unique closed-door format which allows you to engage in frank dialogue, free from solicitation and media intrusion.

This closed-community environment also allows us to bring together an unrivalled panel of C-Level supply chain speakers to share their experience in keynote sessions and panel discussions.

Our forums include:

C-Level executives responsible for end-to-end supply chains

Experience

Our forum format emphasises delegate-to-delegate connections and engagement with the theme and content. There’s a strong sense of community and a wide variety of formats: keynotes, closed-door roundtables, industry and functional streams. More than a third of the time is for senior business leader 121s which you hand select according to your industry, role and areas of interest. All of these enable you to engage in open, meaningful discussions that you can take back to the office.
