“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,” said Kenneth Glasser, NESCON executive producer / Chair, and current local ASCM chapter Board of Director. “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.”
The NESCON 2021 agenda includes provocative keynotes and expert technical presentations, on current economic conditions and uncertainties affecting trade and employment, new adaptive processes in sales and operations, technology forecasts and roadmaps for 2030, and expert insights into the future of work and customer-driven business transformation.
