Supply Chain Conference 2017, with speakers from Amazon, Carlsberg, IKEA, SKF, and more, broke last year's record with more participants than ever before.
Nearly 300 supply chain professionals signed up for the Supply Chain 2017. A major increase since 2016 and Courtyard by Marriott were filled on both Supply Chain Academy, and Supply Chain Conference.
One factor of the success might be the speakers during the final conference day. Tetra Pak, Kronans Apotek, Tesla, and Uber, have all taken the stage during previous year’s conferences. This year was no exception and the list of speakers included supply chain professionals from companies such as Amazon, Carlsberg, IKEA, and SKF.
In addition to the supply chain professionals, an inspirational keynote was given by Danish speaker and digital entrepreneur, Christiane “Elektronista” Vejlø. Christiane Vejlø gave an update on the digital landscape every company operates in and its effects.
“It was a true honor to have so many good speakers on stage and to top it off with Tim Collins, Vice President of Worldwide Logistics, from Amazon’s headquarters in Redmond. It says something when speakers from large countries and global companies wants to join an industry conference in Sweden. The energy from the speakers and participants during Supply Chain Conference, is something that also makes us proud at Optilon. I hope that Optilon with this yearly conference, inspires the Nordic to stay on top of supply chain,” said Richard Barkevall, CEO, Optilon.
