The Annual Spring Symposium

10th Annual Spring Symposium: Building and Sustaining an Innovative and Resilient Supply Chain

Building and sustaining an innovative and resilient supply chain is one of the most important business needs of our time. With the world changing at an unprecedented pace and global disruptions such as COVID-19 causing havoc to global supply chains, companies today must be prepared to respond quickly, responsibly and sustainably in order to survive and thrive. In short, organizations must be innovative, resilient and agile.

Join more than 200 industry professionals from over 100 organizations as well as educators and students — tomorrow's supply chain leaders — to explore innovations across the global supply chain. Topics such as developing innovative technologies, supporting increasing customer demands, creating sustainable and agile supply chains, and developing tomorrow’s talent will be explored.

This year’s Supply Chain Management Institute (SCMI) Spring Symposium will be a gathering dedicated to creating a new catalyst for innovation.

Why Attend?

The SCMI Spring Symposium serves as an annual platform to exchange ideas and collaborate with industry peers on new and future supply chain trends and best practices. The Symposium is also a great venue to exchange ideas with supply chain educators as well as students — the supply chain leaders of tomorrow.
