7:00pm to 5:00pm
IGD's Supply Chain Summit brings together supply chain and distribution directors with their teams to understand the big supply chain issues affecting our sector and to plan how to respond. There will be three critical aspects that will help shape supply chains:
GROWTH: Low volume and margin growth places more pressure on the fundamentals. What role can supply chain play in driving growth?
EFFICIENCY: With greater volatility comes uncertainty and cost, so how can you better collaborate and innovate to drive efficiencies?
CAPABILITY: To influence the business agenda, supply chain teams will need to move from the warehouse to the boardroom and take on stronger leadership role across the business
The Summit has three distinct sessions:
Session 1: NETWORKING AND INSIGHT
Pre-event networking reception at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden. Network with peers over drinks and canapes, then hear a keynote address from a leading industry figure
Session 2: THOUGHT-LEADERSHIP AND INSPIRATION
Plenary, with speakers representing Asda, Tesco, M&S, Natures Way, Unilever, Nestle, Spar and Diary Crest
Session 3: KNOW-HOW AND COLLABORATION
Feedback from last year:
* "A time efficient opportunity to step back & better understand the industry challenges & opportunities. An excellent input to strategic thinking"
*"An invaluable opportunity to hear the challenges faced by other suppliers and the retailers in an open and honest forum."
