The Council of Supply Chain Management Professional’s (CSCMP) Annual Supply Chain Conference, EDGE, draws an attendance of over 3,000 supply chain management professionals each year. EDGE is the only event in the industry that represents the entire supply chain from end-to-end.

CSCMP EDGE 2017 features over 100 sessions and nearly 300 expert speakers from all over the world. Our highly engaged speakers are ready to provide you with end-to-end supply chain best practices, practical research and innovative solutions that you can take back to your organization and apply right away.

Global leaders representing nearly all industry sectors, government, and academia will be attending this event presenting unlimited opportunities to learn from industry experts, hear dynamic speakers, and network with the most influential supply chain leaders in the world. Attendees will have opportunities to connect to the latest supply chain management knowledge, research, and industry developments.  Join colleagues from around the world and make connections that will accelerate your success. 

Learn about the latest trends and technological advancements, from driverless cars to robotics to the ‘Uberfication’ of supply chain.  Attendees will develop insightful performance dashboards to improve decision making and action.  Explore how to utilize zero-based budgeting techniques, take a broader look at supply chain finance and uncover pockets of tangible opportunity. Learn how to harness big data to drive efficiency and productivity across the supply chain.

The cutting-edge line-up includes sessions like:

  • A Look Down the Road CEOs Speak - featuring a panel of C-Suite executives from LTL, TL and 3PL industries speaking about challenges affecting transportation.
  • The “Uber” Model for Warehousing Goes Mainstream – What works today, what still needs tuning, and what’s likely to come.
  • Amazon: The Future of Customer Satisfaction – A don’t miss session! Innovation and disruption occur when supply chains are designed for customer obsession, rather than optimized for service and cost. Amazon’s networks are built on the culture of working backwards from the customer.
  • Disrupt or Be Disrupted - featuring senior executives from Blue Apron, Peloton and Nike. The world’s most innovative companies talk about their journey to the direct to consumer world.
  • And many, many more!

There’s no better place to gain an understanding of these trends and build the toolkit you need to prepare for these change drivers than at EDGE, CSCMP’s 2017 Annual Conference.
