The event will offer supply chain professionals an opportunity to… 
  *Build personal and professional resource information with industry professionals, vendors and suppliers from 33 countries.
  *Learn about global sourcing, supply chain metrics, sustainability, new trends and technology with hundreds of sessions.
  *Refresh your talents and knowledge with access to educational content that covers more of the supply chain than any other event.
  *Get a year’s worth of educational information in just three days.
  *Make the most of your budgeted training funds and revive your career path.
