Transforming your Digital Supply Chain with IoT, ubiquitous connectivity and data-driven insights

The very latest in connected technology is poised to disrupt traditional supply chain operations as we know them. Tighter production margins; increasing globalisation and added complexity are all driving businesses to implement a connected, intelligent and scalable end to end strategy.

Don't get left behind...

The 2nd Annual Internet of Supply Chain conference is the event to NOT ONLY showcase how connected and digital technologies will enhance your supply chain, but to also provide you with the partners and know-how on blockchain, autonomous and AI plus much more.

This event is aimed at forward-thinking supply chain and logistics professionals (& those eager to learn more) providing the expertise to reduce costs, create transparency, deliver value and improve efficiency!

Our Survey Says ...

The very latest industry research, coupled with feedback from our esteemed speaker line up, shows that IoT, Robotics and predictive analytics are set to surge dramatically in 2018 within Supply Chains globally.

Data-driven insights really are the game changer and the industry is starting to look very seriously at Blockchain and its impact.

As much as the opportunity is now well and truly realised, unreliable connectivity has the potential to hinder innovation which is why this and much more will be an important topic of discussion at this years' show

Building on the success of last years' event, the Internet of Supply Chain Conference 2018 is the must-attend event for executives looking for the essential insight, case study analysis and business relationships which will turn disruption into success.
