About Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference 2016

Gartner Supply Chain Executive Conference 2016 is the world’s most important gathering of supply chain leaders. A two-part, bimodal supply chain is the new reality for organizations. This marriage of two distinct approaches delivers day-in, day-out reliability and game-changing innovation at the same time.
