Supply chain conference in Peru will feature world-renowned speakers

CSCMP's Peru Roundtable will co-host presentations and discussion sessions on supply chain practices, education, and data analytics, June 22-23 in Lima.

In June, industry experts, supply chain professionals, researchers, and academics will gather in Lima, Peru, for two days of educational events that will draw speakers and attendees from throughout the Americas.

The event's objective is to analyze industry's requirements for supply chain management and to propose plans and strategies for creating and/or improving logistics and supply chain education in light of those needs. The evening discussion will be followed by a networking reception.

On Thursday, the Peru Roundtable, APPROLOG, and the graduate school of the University of the Pacific (Universidad del Pacífico) will co-host the annual Supply Chain Leadership Conference. The theme for the conference is "Advanced Big Data, Analytics, and Supply Chain Metrics."
