LLamasoft Announces Summer Conference on Supply Chain Design

LLamasoft Summer Conference on Supply Chain Design

“Last year’s event was very successful,” said LLamasoft CEO Don Hicks. “But we promised then to create an event that offered even more—more speakers, more sessions, more information, and more global companies in attendance.”

LLamasoft, the leader in supply chain design, announces its 2nd annual Summer Conference on Supply Chain Design, which will take place in Ann Arbor, Michigan on June 20-22, 2012.

Last year more than 100 business executives from 12 countries representing 60 companies from around the globe gathered to discuss supply chain design. This year attendance is expected to grow by 50%.

The global environment is in a state of constant change—expansion, volatility of commodity prices, uncertainty of supplies, and demanding customer service standards have become the new norm.

The ability of organizations to design a cost-effective supply chain that is flexible, sustainable, and able to recover from disaster has become an imperative. Companies that do this process well are more competitive and return significantly higher shareholder value.

The Summer Conference on Supply Chain Design is a forum for new supply chain ideas and best practice scenarios shared in a peer setting. Here are some of the highlights for this year’s event:

  • Keynote Presenters like Lieutenant General William Gus Pagonis, one of the key logistics strategists for the Gulf War
  • Industry Leaders Panel Discussions featuring straight talk from supply chain executives of numerous global companies
  • Industry Tracks to cover Supply Chain Design case studies and best practices across all key market segments
  • Solution Tracks to explore project examples and user case studies on topics such as Network Optimization, Inventory Optimization, Transportation Modeling, Cost-to-Serve Analysis, etc.

The standard admission price is $595. However, LLamasoft customers will receive a voucher for complimentary admission to the event if they register before April 15. They will still receive a 50% voucher credit if they register before May 31.

“Last year’s event was very successful,” said LLamasoft CEO Don Hicks. “But we promised then to create an event that offered even more—more speakers, more sessions, more information, and more global companies in attendance.”
