Two Days of Cross-Sector Intelligence

The two-day Logistics & Supply Chain‘s 17th annual Supply Chain Conference on 17th & 18th March 2020 in central London, UK, is the perfect platform for international supply chain leaders to network and learn from experts in their field.

The 17th annual Supply Chain Conference also gives you the opportunity to hear from winners and finalists of the 2019 Supply Chain Excellence Awards and how they successfully transformed their supply chain. You can also gain up to 10 CPD hours from attending the conference.

“The annual Logistics and Supply Chain conference is well worth attending. It managers to attract a wide range of delegates, highlight relevant topics in the industry and allow you to discuss common issues facing your own supply chain.”

The 2020 agenda will be announced later this year. You can take a look at the topics discussed in 2019 below.
