CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly and sister publication DC Velocity hosted their annual reception and dinner at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals' 2016 Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida. The invitation-only event brings together a select group of logistics and supply chain professionals who have been profiled in DC Velocity's Thought Leader Q&A series or have been a recipient of its annual Logistics Rainmakers designation. CSCMP's leadership, including CEO Rick Blasgen and members of the board of directors, were among those on hand for an evening of thought-provoking discussion and networking. The event was generously supported by Cognizant, GT Nexus, U.S. Bank, JLL, and Tranzact Technologies.
