Last week we hosted our 10th annual Supply Chain Leadership Forum! We had nearly 130 attendees join us in Nashville at the Hilton Downtown on August 25-27 for several days of networking, thought leadership, and knowledge sharing.

In case you missed it, here are some of our favorite photos from this year's event:

After two final breakout sessions on Wednesday, the group joined together one last time for a "Lunch and Learn" session led by Bruce Tompkins and Chris Ferrell. The Lunch and Learn recapped each session from the event and provided takeaways for attendees to take back to their companies.
