"Exchanging knowledge, coping with supply chain risks"

This annual event developed by Supply-Chain Council-Europe continues the knowledge-based theme of the organisation’s Supply-Chain Management Conference Accelerating Knowledge held in September 2004 in Prague, Czech Republic. More interactive sessions with limited attendance have been added to give attendees more opportunities to share experiences and discussion with fellow attendees. This is a way to gather some of the most valuable answers and this is an advantage you can only attain by attending a face-to-face meeting, such as this Exchanging Knowledge: Coping with Supply Chain Risks conference.

Recently, the interests of uncertainty, risks and vulnerability related to Supply Chain Management have increased. Supply chain risks have many sources, eg supplier failure and uncertain demand, and recent industry cases pointed out their negative impact on the business success of the companies. The management of supply chain risk will be of rising importance for many companies in the coming years. Therefore, the focus of discussion throughout the conference will be the treatment of supply chain risks, as well as other management topics. The planning team has developed a programme with perspectives from a range of industries and situations to offer attendees diversity and an assortment of topics to attend.

The Supply-Chain Operations Reference-model (SCOR) is also addressed in the conference. It supports industry practitioners in achieving their business goals and accelerating supply chain projects and initiatives, In addition, it provides a project environment bringing overview and control. Above all, SCOR provides a common language between chain and network partners (and cross-industry) that highly supports communication, partner insight and collaboration. These are elements that everyone in supply chain management and related fields can benefit from.

This conference offers all of this opportunity – designed by practitioners for practitioners by the Supply-Chain Council (SCC) the largest worldwide non-profit trade association in the field of Supply Chain Management.
