34th International Supply Chain Conference: Think Different − Act Digital

A fundamental idea behind the International Supply Chain Conference is and was to disseminate publicly logistics knowledge of experts to the general public. From the start, establishing a platform for making business contacts and initiating business deals played an important role. At no other event in Germany the "logistics market" is as within reach as at this conference. Since 1985 it is also accompanied by a trade exhibition and the number of stands has increased tenfold from 20 to around 200. Furthermore, a multiplicity of meeting points and corporate lounges enrich the possibilities to do and see.

Today the International Supply Chain Conference is the most important annual logistics event in Europe. It became the central meeting point for managers in Germany. Additionally, more and more international guests join the event in order to benefit from knowledge sharing and focused communication.
