The 2011 Annual Global Conference of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) will take place October 2 – 5 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.  The last day to register at pre-pay rates ends on Friday, December 31.

The event will offer supply chain professionals an opportunity to… 
  *Build personal and professional resource information with industry professionals, vendors and suppliers from 33 countries.
  *Learn about global sourcing, supply chain metrics, sustainability, new trends and technology with hundreds of sessions.
  *Refresh your talents and knowledge with access to educational content that covers more of the supply chain than any other event.
  *Get a year’s worth of educational information in just three days.
  *Make the most of your budgeted training funds and revive your career path.

Each company’s solution will mesh with the others intuitively so a warehouse or distribution center will optimize its efficiency and productivity.”  Read more…
