The Queensland Supply Chain and Logistics Conference will celebrate their tenth anniversary in 2009. The conference has its theme as “How far have we really come: A Decade in Review.” The 2009 conference will be a ten year celebration of supply chain, logistics and procurement and will discuss the lessons learnt, mistakes made and the success stories.
Building on the success of the 2008 event, the 2009 conference will have additions to the programme with the 2009 T&L Leaders Awards, the executive forum and the annual charity dinner.
In addition to the business programme, the social programme is designed to provide the opportunity for a company to renew existing friendships, develop additional contacts and reinforce its position within the industry.
The Supply Chain & Logistics Conference is organised by industry associations including the Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia, (SCLAA) the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), QUT School of International Business, CIPS Australia, the Australasian Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS) and the South East Queensland Procurement Network group. The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) will support the event.
The Supply Chain & Logistics Conference will attract approximately 400 delegates from all over Australia and internationally through the newly extended programme. A large proportion of the delegates will be key decision-makers, capable of influencing debate and decision. Delegates will include chief executive officers, senior executives and management, who are involved at all levels of procurement, manufacturing and materials management, and the people responsible for contracting, outsourcing, warehousing and logistics and other supply chain activities in the private enterprise, government (state, local) or public sector business enterprises.
2009 exhibitors and partners already confirmed include AirRoad, Open Windows, Red Prairie, Haymans Electrical, OfficeMax, Konica Australia, Trades & Labour Hire, Quadrem and ProcureNet.
