In an era of unprecedented disruption and opportunity, the 2024 Supply Chain Summit serves as a crucible for revolutionary thinking and action. Today’s supply chain is no longer just a cost center; it’s a strategic asset, an innovation incubator, and a critical element in achieving sustainable growth. 

As we stand at the brink of a new digital decade, we find ourselves questioning long-established principles. Low cost is no longer the ultimate goal; instead, we seek value, resilience, and adaptability.

The landscape is shifting beneath our feet. We’re not just witnessing change; we’re participating in its making. The principles that guided us yesterday won’t necessarily navigate us through tomorrow’s challenges. Geopolitical volatility, environmental sustainability, and technological advancements are rewriting the rules, demanding that we adopt more agile, transparent, and collaborative approaches.

Harnessing the power of emerging technologies is no longer optional; it’s a requisite for staying relevant. But innovation doesn’t stop at processes and platforms; it also extends to how we engage with our workforce, our partners, and our customers. From blockchain’s potential to secure and streamline transactions to AI’s role in predictive analytics, the future of supply chain is not just digital; it’s also deeply human.

Don’t miss this seminal event. As industry thought leaders, strategists, and visionaries converge to discuss the most pressing issues and trends, you’ll be equipped not just to adapt but to lead in this transformative era. Together, we will script the future narrative of supply chain management, laying the groundwork for an industry more resilient, ethical, and prosperous than ever before.


The Role of Culture and Employee Engagement:

Explore how fostering a culture of innovation and employee engagement can amplify the impact of digital transformations in supply chain operations.

Navigate the complexities of an ever-changing world by building supply networks that are both resilient and adaptive. This session will equip you with the tools to create flexible supply strategies that can withstand geopolitical shifts, market disruptions, and rapid technological advancements.

Explore the transformation from traditional, linear supply chains to dynamic value ecosystems. This session will illuminate how such a shift can not only drive sustainability and efficiency but also open novel pathways for business growth.

Enhance supply chain efficiency and consumer trust through increased
visibility and transparency enabled by technology.

Discover how cutting-edge companies are reducing waste through circular supply chain models.

Delve into the critical strategies for understanding and mitigating geopolitical risks in your global supply chain. This session will guide you through methods to enhance resilience and sustainability, preparing your operations for uncertainties on the global stage.

- Design and implement holistic production systems considering cross-functional integration (TPM, IWS, PSS, CBS, etc.)
- Bring lean/OpEx theory into daily operations
- Daily standard working processes and performance monitoring
- Improve processes, organizational structures and systems in industrial organizations
- Enable people to work together closely and to become better leaders (servant leaders)
