The 2007 Queensland Supply Chain & Logistics Conference entitled: Change, contribute, communicate and collaborate was held. With close to 400 people attending the two day event the conference proved that the calibre of speakers was a major draw card for delegate at an affordable price.
"Supply Chain conferences have always revolved around Logistics, missing out the two key elements of the Supply Chain, Procurement and manufacturing.
I was very pleased to see that the Queensland Supply Chain & Logistics Conference delivered a balanced view of the whole Supply Chain with a good focus on the importance of Procurement within the Supply Chain." Stephen Rowe,Chief Procurement Officer, Parmalat Australia Ltd
“Run by a dedicated team of volunteers, this event consistently outshines conferences around the world run by professional conference organisations.
The charity conference dinner which raised $30K for www.oasisafrica.net and it's 600 kids orphaned by HIV/AIDS, was a testament of the Queensland spirit and a revelation to those fortunate enough to be part of the night."
“The 2007 Queensland Supply Chain & Logistics Conference was once again highly informative and value for money - one of the best all round - any enjoyable on the national and international Supply Chain circuits - not to be missed in 2008." Anonomous.
“The 2007 Queensland Supply Chain & Logistics Conference was full of good practical Supply Chain and Logistics experience and local case studies.
There is a lot more level of detail and more opportunity to ask questions and have more interaction than other conferences. It is well organised and presentations are available in printed workbooks so you can make appropriate notes.” Mark Skipper, Managing Director, RedPrairie Asia Pacific
"The conference organisers showed yet again it is up there with the best of them running a professional, informative, enlightening conference of relevance to the contemporary Supply Chain industry.
The high quality of speakers, diversity of delegates, complimented by that unmistakable relaxed Queensland culture made this event a winner - yet again." Anonomous.
“Thanks for the opportunity to speak at the conference. I found the support for speakers exceptional. The organising committee can and should be proud of their achievement.
I found the 2007 Queensland Supply Chain & Logistics Conference to be a high quality event that provided an opportunity for delegates to network with, and learn from the experience of people representing organisations from a broad cross section of the Australian logistics industry.
The conference was supported by a range of exhibitors who provide enabling technology and support for the industry sector.” Bruce Niebling, Business Planning and Improvement Manager,RACS Redbank
“I think one of the significant take-outs from a conference such as this is the often misunderstood touch points between the many disciplines that constitute Logistics and the Supply Chain.
We all tend to focus on our own areas of expertise but, in the breakout session in which I participated, I identified many different issues which, as part of what I do daily, I really need to know something about.” Pas Tomasiello, Manager – Direct & Wholesale Distribution, Dematic
“The Queensland Supply Chain & Logistics Conference is always well organised and attended. There is a wide selection of delegates, some great speakers and the conference provides a great opportunity to network with people in the industry.” Artie Leslie, Managing Director, Benchmarking Success
“It was a very useful conference as it helped me appreciate what the current range of practices being deployed in a wider range of industries. From this perspective it acted as a mini benchmarking exercise by which I could establish where my organisation and where I could improve.
It was also good to have the opportunity to mix and mingle with other practitioners as it helped me realise that irrespective of what industries we are in we face many common issues.” Kevin Burgess, General Manager – Supply, Queensland Rail
“The Local Government breakout session was excellent, stimulating some thought-provoking debate and questions around the complex issues of good procurement planning.” Katharine Ghidella, Manager-Procurement Services, Queensland Purchasing.
