Call for Speakers and Award Winning Supply Chains

If you're interested in speaking about emerging technologies, or being recognized for your work, read on!

By ·

Are you researching or writing about the emerging technologies that are going to power tomorrow’s supply chains? Or, are you a supply chain manager whose organization is doing great things with AI, robotic process automation, the Internet of Things, robotics, sensors, block chain or 3D printing? If you answered yes on either counts, Supply Chain Management Review wants to hear from you.

April 16 & 17, 2019, Supply Chain Management Review is hosting our first NextGen Supply Chain conference. We’ll be highlighting the emerging technologies that will shape tomorrow’s supply chains across processes - from sourcing to final delivery. Those would include robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, IoT, 3D printing, machine learning and digital transformation to name a few. The goal is to make this a smaller conference for senior level executives - 150 to 200 attendees - with an emphasis on education and networking opportunities.  Here’s the link to the conference, which will be at the Chicago Athletic Association hotel on Michigan Avenue. 

We recently sent out our call for speakers blast. In the event that you are in academia, consulting and analytics, are a supply chain practitioner, or a solution provider who is interested in speaking on one of the emerging technologies, here is the link to the speakers page which will explain what we’re looking for and have the application info. Caveat: The advisory board chooses the speakers. And - to solution providers - they have to be non-commercial.

As part of the conference, Supply Chain Management Review is launching its first supply chain awards for end users/practitioners that have done notable things related to emerging technologies. If your organization is interested in applying for one of the awards, we’d welcome the submission. Like the speakers, winners are chosen by the advisory board.

Last, and perhaps most importantly, this is not a pay to play event. Speakers are chosen on the merits of their presentation idea.

We hope to hear from you soon, and, see you in Chicago.
