Creating the Smarter Supply Chain of the Future

26th July 2022, Chicago 18:00 - 21:00 CDT
In partnership

Dinner Location: Smyth & The Loyalist

Demand uncertainty and volatile disruptions have shone a glaring spotlight on supply chains around the world. While factors such as inflationary pressures, supply shocks, and demands for sustainability and transparency expose new risks, they also pose a unique opportunity to transform operations and become more resilient.

The supply chain of the future must leverage emerging technologies to monitor, predict and mitigate disruptions; foster collaboration and visibility across entire supplier networks to meet CSR goals; and deliver flawless customer experiences.

Together we’ll have a collaborative and open discussion on transforming supply chains, the challenges we face, the goals we are working to achieve and the role of data and technology to assist.

From the entire team at Meet the Boss and IBM we look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course, every course.
