Supply Chain Events 2024
Supply Chain Expos, Conferences and Shows Provide a Platform for Supply Chain Professionals to Share Value Chain Industry Knowledge, Experience and Insight

Supply chain expos, conferences and shows allow attendees learn about industry best practices, emerging trends and to also garner innovative solutions from experts and thought leaders.

Many such events also offer networking opportunities for supply chain people to connect with peers, potential business partners, suppliers and customers. 

Building and maintaining a strong professional network is valuable for career development and business growth, whatever one’s role or industry experience.

Many events feature education and training, offering workshops and seminars around vital aspects of supply chain management. 

Exposure to new technologies, meanwhile, is vital in a world that is moving so fast. Almost every week there seems to be another use case for generative AI in supply chain, for example.
