Annual Tompkins Supply Chain Leadership Forum

A supply chain forum for executives.

Conference Starts in:

CONNECTING.

Every year the forum starts with an opening reception, where you will be given the opportunity to connect with supply chain leaders.  Also, you will have the chance to make a local connection with a night out on the town.  Some of the local connecting over the years has taken place at Target Field home to the Minneapolis Twins, the Briscoe Western Art Museum in San Antonio, Broadway Street in Nashville home to Country Music, and a tour of the Miller Brewing Company in Denver.

SHARING.

Quality content and quality speakers make the difference at an executive forum. The Tompkins International Supply Chain Leadership Forum provides both, with relevant supply chain hot topics, enabling all attendees to share ideas and best practices on the newest supply chain technology, transportation methods, material handling options, supply chain execution, fulfillment strategies, and network optimization.  This happens through panel discussions, Q&A, fireside chats, interactive sessions, and presentations given by Tompkins International’s leadership team and experts representing many industries including: Retail, Automotive, Consumer Products, 3PLs, Pharma & Health Care, and Food & Beverage.
