CIMCIL Symposium 2020: "The Digital Supply Chain"

Dear Supply Chain Professionals and Enthusiasts,

As you might have noticed, around this time CIMCIL usually organizes his annual Symposium. After last year’s successful event, we have put our heads together and see what could be better. In a lot of the feedback we received, you have mentioned to us that once a year is not enough. So we decided to use this year to develop more symposia and more events around it.

As of 2020, the CIMCIL Symposium will be a bi-annual event. The first one will be next February and will have the same structure as the Symposium as we knew it. We will hold a second Symposium around this timeframe next year as well, but at that moment, we will make it a full day, with speakers, but also with loads of interaction.

As for February, our topic will be “the Digital Supply Chain”. As always, we have 4 interesting speakers that will give their take on Supply Chain in the future. We will end the Symposium with a certification ceremony for all the people that have certified in the year 2019. Those people will be invited in the next few weeks.

For people who are certified already, this event is a great way to maintain your certification. By only following both symposia every year, you are garantueed to renew your certification.

You can find more information on the registration link and we are always available for more information through all the usual channels, including our social media channels.

We love to see you all on February 20th !

Jan-Frederik Van Overschée
