Oliver Sloane, Group Director Manufacturing Industries, WTG London Comments on the event:
In putting together the content for the European Supply Chain and Logistics (SCL) Summit, now in its 9th year, we’ve developed a programme that truly reflects the challenges and concerns of the SCM and Logistics community.
One of the main pressures that appears consistently across numerous industry verticals is the potential conflict between an on-demand supply network and the uninterrupted flow of goods to customers. Many of the supply chain directors who come to the summit talk of the pressure from board level to reduce inventory to a bare minimum, whilst maintaining availability and satisfying ever-fluctuating customer demand.
Running the SCL Summit over the last nine years, we have truly seen the development of the supply network. As the concept becomes a reality, with suppliers and customers co-opted as key stakeholders, the pressure exerted on both sides has significantly grown. The need to address the relationship between supplier, manufacturer and customer in a demand driven environment is the main emphasis behind the SCL Summit agenda. The 200 end-user delegates in attendance will hear from a selection of top-level speakers, like Michael Aguilar, EVP Consumer Electronics at Panasonic, who have successfully reduced inventory levels whilst maintaining service standards.
Complimentary to this general theme, cross-industry sessions on risk management, people in the supply chain and ethical sourcing will be combined with more vertically-focused streams and interactive workshops around specific solution areas. Every attendee will have a personalised itinerary created for them that allows them to maximise their time at the summit, selecting the sessions relevant to their business and choosing to meet one-on-one with fellow supply chain and logistics directors to share knowledge and experiences.
We are very excited about this year’s event and look forward to bringing everyone together in May for a hard-working but rewarding two days.
