To begin with, changing to a larger venue gives suppliers a much better advantage by allowing them to show off and demonstrate their products and services to potential purchasers.
Secondly, the organisers believe that by dividing the Total Supply Chain Summit into 3 sectors, Warehousing, Supply Chain Management & Planning & Transport, Distribution & Logistics they have been able to make the time spend at the Summit even more productive by offering a greater diversity and choice of supplier companies for the delegates- therefore completely covering the whole supply chain industry under one roof.
Event Manager Sharron Fothergill explains the reasons for the changes ‘with so many new events cropping up within this industry but leaving attendees feeling unfulfilled, we felt we needed to make a point of difference without losing sight of what we are about – which is purely helping delegates source new suppliers for best practice and giving supplier companies business to business meetings with real decision makers’ she goes on to say ‘Delegate attendance is up by 25% so far this year, and many areas on the supplier side are full, with a 75% rebook from last year’s event – which only goes to show that the changes are for the better’
The delegate workshops this year are hosted by a stellar list of industry professionals:
Theo de Pencier CEO Freight Transport Association; Theo will open the event with a discussion entitled: “If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always got
Lord Berkeley Chairman Rail Freight Group “How to get the best out of rail for your logistics”
Roger Williams CEO UKWA “Leading by example ”Roger considers if those at the top of the UK’s logistics sector are well qualified to lead the industry out of the current recession or if the sector is suffering from a lack of ‘officer’ material at board level.
Chris Sturman FCILT FRSA Chief Executive FSDF “Keeping Great Britain Fed – everyday!” Supply Chain challenges in a volatile world”
Jim Flynn, Gael Ltd “Tomorrows World – Delivered Today. Continuous improvement and excellence in the Supply Chain.”
Colin Ferguson CEO Route Monkey Ltd “Fuel savings & a greener economy for the supply chain”
Delegate attendance is, as always, totally complimentary, including seminars and workshops, overnight accommodation, all meals and refreshments plus a place at the evening gala dinner with after dinner entertainment.
