NESCON 2021 Summit
NESCON 2021 is a single full-day summit with a visionary theme: Supply Chain 2030—A Bridge to the Future. The virtual conference is free to attend and will be held online Monday, October 4, 2021, from 8:30 am to 2:30 pm EDT.
Kenneth Glasser, NESCON executive producer / Chair, and current local ASCM chapter Board of Director:
“This summit is part of the supply chain community’s goal to inform the regional manufacturers and distributors about and trends that will create significant impact for businesses. We will put the best ideas and practices in front of top decision-makers, and provide a place where they can learn and discuss the pressing needs of the evolving supply chain ecosystem. Our vibrant community has embraced these once-a-year summits, even online, that convene top thinkers and doers. Making the summit free and virtual has made it very accessible to all supply chain professionals.”
