Supply Chain Conferences 2012

Rating of news Items

Just another year comes to an end and so it is high time to aggregate the upcoming conferences on supply chain management and related topics in 2012.

The goal is to have a comprehensive overview of the most instructive and useful conferences of the year.

If you have any additions, just let me know in the comments section of this article. Also, you can recommend one of the conferences or the other from your personal experience.

In accordance with the topic of the blog I focussed my selection on conferences, which also have tracks related to supply chain risk management. As last year, I also added a column for the Target Audience being either Business, Research or Both.

Since not all major conferences have released the dates for 2012, I will update this post as soon as I receive new information. You can subscribe to my site and get updates via RSS or email by clicking the icons in banner on this page.
