HOW FAR HAVE WE REALLY COME? A DECADE IN REVIEW.
CELEBRATING TEN YEARS.
With record numbers of delegates in attendance from all over Australia, and a theme of ‘How far have we really come: A Decade in Review’, the 2009 Queensland Supply Chain & Logistics Conference was undoubtedly the biggest and most successful industry event ever held in Queensland.
The 2009 conference was a ten year celebration of supply chain, logistics and procurement. Lessons learned, mistakes made and success stories. Has the industry really changed?
This year speakers included Hal Morris, Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Logistics Council, Steve Simpson who established the Unwritten Ground Rules, Garry Chalmers, Executive General Manager, Corporate Express, Derek Lundberg, General Manager, IGA (Metcash), Craig Lardner, Group Procurement Director, George Weston Foods Ltd, Simon Costa, Managing Director of Costa Group and Allan Pease, My Body Language.
Building on the success of the 2008 event the conference also had exciting additions to the program with the 2009 T&L Leaders Awards, the SCL Summit and the annual charity dinner on the Thursday evening.
In addition to the extensive business program, the social program was designed to provide the opportunity for companies to renew existing friendships, develop additional contacts and learn in a most-relaxed environment.
The Supply Chain & Logistics Conference is organised by leading industry associations including the Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia, (SCLAA) the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP), QUT School of International Business, CIPS Australia, the Australasian Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS) and the South East Queensland Procurement Network group. The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) supports the event.
Delegates included chief executive officers, senior executives and management who are involved at all levels of procurement, manufacturing and materials management, and the people responsible for contracting, outsourcing, warehousing and logistics and other supply chain activities in the private enterprise, government (state, local) or public sector business enterprises.
