Dematic, a global supplier of logistics systems for the factory, warehouse and distribution center, announced today that Jay Leno will be the keynote speaker at the 2013 Material Handling & Logistics Conference in Park City, Utah, September 8 to 11.

The 2013 conference theme is Get Smart: Boost Your Supply Chain iQ and will educate attendees on the makings of a world-class 2025 supply chain. The three-day conference offers extensive learning opportunities categorized into six tracks: leadership, talent, experience, solutions, innovation and lifecycle.

As one of the country’s favorite TV personalities, Leno will provide a humorous break for attendees on Monday, September 9. He has performed hundreds of comedy shows in the past 20-plus years, including a 15-year run as the host of the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He has authored two New York Times best-selling children’s books and has published two compilation books.

“As logistics professionals, we spend time working on high level analytical solutions for our own businesses and our customers,” said John Baysore, President and CEO, Dematic North America. “We’re thrilled to have Jay Leno on board with this year’s conference. As one of America’s most beloved comedians, he will help us all relax, take a step back and remind us of the golden rule of business – do something you love and success will follow.”

The 2013 conference mission is to educate participants on how to benchmark their own supply chain goals, quantify gaps and help them build their own actionable 100-day plan to start closing those gaps to supply chain greatness. Programming promises to enlighten attendees on the many solutions tailored toward solving supply chain challenges including multi-channel distribution, SKU proliferation, labor utilization and space utilization.
