Symposium 2018: Supply Chain Game Changers

CIMCIL continues to closely track the needs of the supply chain of the 21st century. We would like to invite you as our valued guest to our third symposium on November 8th, 2018.

The theme for this event is “Supply Chain Game Changers” and we have built a future oriented program, covering today’s issues and offering an opportunity to think about the approach to overcome and improve the Supply Chain Operations.

We are putting together a unique program, highlighting the strategic importance, but also showing how to apply it to our local companies, deploying new technologies and management techniques. And presenting some real-life cases and what the impact is on the establishment, competencies and motivation of the teams in charge of delivering our best performance to our customers.
