SCM World live - A new beginning in Supply Chain Conferences

Last month, I was notified by a good friend, of an extremely innovative approach to conducting a “Supply Chain” conference – a global conference where you get to share ideas with thousands of experts supply_chain_earth_ideain SCM from the comfort of your desk and chair. While I would certainly like to know how many of you were aware of an event like this, I would also like to provide the rest of you key to a wealth of information about important topics in Supply Chain Management. This conference was organized by Rapture World on 24 Feb 2010. The event is called “SCM World Live”. I was amazed at the number of speakers, the sheer range of topics covered and the scale at which it was conducted. The website reports to over 3000 “supply chain” executives having attended the event from across the world. The website describes the event in these words

SCM World Live is the virtual supply chain conference for senior global supply chain, logistics, procurement and operations directors looking to share best practice and ideas around supply chain management, without having to travel to a physical supply chain conference. This unique virtual supply chain event allows senior global executives to network, learn and hear from leading supply chain experts, and get all the benefits of attending a physical supply chain conference, without the associated expense and time.

 

At least for me, it is one of those “Why didn’t I think of this?” kind of ideas. I’m pretty sure this is one of the first (if not “the first”) events to be conducted at this scale in Supply Chain Management. The best part is – the event is now available “on demand”. This means that if you’re cursing yourself right now for not attending this event, you can stop right away. You can listen to all the speakers by registering for free on the website. I think this is a great opportunity. I have registered myself on the website too. Over the next week or two, I will be writing about talks from the conference that I found interesting. Keep a watch for those articles on SCM Blog.
