Our conference program is refreshingly different to 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 executives and are for 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.

  • Applying Big Data to Risk-Adjusted Supply Chain Management

    Wade McDaniel, Vice President of Solutions Architecture for Avnet Velocity, Avnet Inc.

    Supply chain disruptions can happen at any time and as a result of any combination of factors such as geopolitical issues, natural disasters or economic pressures. However, a risk-adjusted approach to supply chain management helps ensure that organizations are equipped to mitigate those hazards and continue to effectively meet customer demands. To that end, big data provides valuable intelligence that companies of all sizes can apply to manage and adjust for risk. McDaniel’s session will focus on:

    • How can companies apply big data provided for the insurance industry to their supply network
    • The types of data that can mitigate risk
    • Best practices for developing a risk-adjusted supply network
    • Examples of companies who have successfully mitigated risk using this approach

    Wade McDaniel brings more than 25 years of high-tech supply chain experience to this presentation. He leads the Avnet Velocity team’s efforts in designing and implementing highly-competitive global supply chain solutions for Avnet and its customers. McDaniel also serves as publisher of Supply Chain Navigator. His expertise includes supply chain engineering, finance, warehousing, logistics, digital demand and trade issues.

    Avnet, Inc. is a Fortune 500 company with $27.9 billion in global revenue. Avnet is one of the largest distributors of electronic components, computer products and embedded technology in the world. Attendees will benefit from McDaniel’s global industry experience as a leader in the supply chain industry.
