Past event: Supply Chain Industry Week

Introducing a New Concept of Industry-Specific vs Cross-Industry Learning

With the rapidly increasing consumer demand for excellence in logistics and the emergence of automation in supply chain, it is now vital for senior executives to get ahead of the latest trends, strategies and techniques while expanding their professional network.

Being able to benchmark and leverage best practices with industry leaders is important - however in this current climate, executives now cannot afford to focus merely on the very latest approaches within supply chain as an industry, it is now imperative that they drill down within their specific sector.

3 Industry-Specific Events in a Week of Cross-Industry Learning

Continuing on from its successful launch in 2018, SCi Week 2019 brings three key supply chain industries under one roof: Retail + FMCG, Discrete Manufacturing and Process Manufacturing to explore best practices in developing world class intelligent supply chains. Each expertly crafted industry hall will give you insights into the following:
  • RETAIL & FMCG - The dedicated Retail & FMCG Hall will showcase how leading companies are taking the leap in digital transformation and building their future-looking supply chain with true customer centricity in mind.
  • DISCREET MANUFACTURING - The Discreet Manufacturing Hall will provide insights into real business cases on how companies are leveraging automatic material handing, inventory planning, advanced track-and-trace systems in combination with more accurate sales & operations planning to help improving their supply chain visibility and operations margins.
  • PROCESS MANUFACTURING - The Process Manufacturing Hall will feature case studies from leading process manufacturing and chemical companies on how they are tackling cost and compliance challenges in new ways.
