UNIQUE, ONE-OF-A-KIND EXECUTIVE EXCHANGES

Our conference program is refreshingly different than what you're used to seeing at regular tradeshows and conferences. Why?
  • Built Around Your Needs: We create the conference program based on research and feedback from our senior logistics & supply chain professionals who, like you, are dealing with critical issues on a daily basis.
  • First Class Speakers: Conference sessions are led by peers or industry experts, who have a clear understanding of the business obstacles inherent in controlling large logistics and supply chain departments, and how they can be managed and resolved.
  • Intimate Sessions: Sessions are for small groups of under 25 senior logistics & supply chain professionals only. This environment encourages attendees to be able to share best practices, successful case studies, and receive opinions and suggestions from their colleagues.

If you would like to participate in the program, or recommend any speakers or topics, please email Sheila Brennan  or call her at 212-651-8730.

  • Supply Chains in the Age of Information Everywhere

    Quentin Hardy, Head of Editorial, Google Cloud

    The past decade has evolved a powerful technology model: Sensors, from drones and smartphones to passive monitors, everywhere; cloud computing systems literally as big as the planet with powerful and cheap Artificial Intelligence; and computer "ledgers" enabling not just Bitcoin, but auditable and anonymous transactions of all kinds. It is the fulfillment of what computing has always wanted to do -- be everywhere -- and companies like Uber and Amazon have made great initial strides by leveraging this technology. It's still early days, however, with much innovation still to come, and many incumbents finding what will eventually be a strong market position. In this talk, I will provide an easy to understand context and analysis of how technology is changing business habits, the qualities of leadership, and what we can expect next.

    Quentin Hardy is the head of Editorial at Google Cloud, writing about the ways that cloud computing technology, and by extension the advent of computer intelligence at every point on the planet, is reshaping society.

    Previous to joining Google, Mr. Hardy was Deputy Technology Editor at The New York Times, where for many years he wrote about enterprise computing. He has also been National Editor of Forbes Magazine, and a reporter with The Wall Street Journal in San Francisco and Tokyo. For 10 years he was part of “Forbes on Fox,” a weekend news program on Fox News.

    His “a-hed” feature stories for The Journal have been widely anthologized, and his Forbes cover story about technology in Africa was given a citation by The Overseas Press Club.
