The 6th International Supply Management Congress (ISMC) is the first of a new series of 5 annual congresses with a mission: “Supply Management 2020: Making the shift happen!”.
A comprehensive and renowned international knowledge and networking event connecting the worlds of purchasing and supply management, R&D/innovation, sustainability and suppliers. After 5 highly rated editions with 800 to 1000 participants, the 6th edition will expand with exclusive inspiring Pre-Congress events and the ISMC Awards Dinner on November 21st.
Connect & Share: Facing the future together...
This year’s main theme will focus on connecting and sharing in four Fields of Interest such as Innovation & Technology, Human Capital, Responsibility and Supply & Finance. Real sharing of information, knowledge, sources and benefits. Still a bigger challenge than we like to admit.
This challenge will be addressed from various angles in around 40 sessions of international keynotes, best practices, leading specialists, innovations, interactive workshops, start-ups and academic findings. From within leading industries, governments, academic & research institutions and NGO's.
Exclusive pre-congress events & ISMC awards dinner...
New for the 6th edition is an exclusive pre-congress program on November 21st. A limited number of international participants and guests of our sponsors and partners can choose to attend in-depth masterclasses by our keynotes and academics, insightful site trips to leading companies and projects, specific discussion panels and working groups, meeting platforms, social events and more. And in the evening we conclude our Pre-Congress day in style with the new exclusive ISMC Awards Dinner combining the renowned Dutch Sourcing Awards with the Young Talent Award.
