How to Prosper in the Face of Unrelenting Change


Grocery stores struggling to stock their empty shelves.
Container ships in the ocean as far as the eye can see.
Labor shortages throughout every stage of the supply chain.

Supply chain chaos has created a tsunami-like impact for businesses. And the effects continue to reverberate, resulting in a constant stream of alarming headlines, accelerating crises, and thrusting supply chains to the forefront of CEO strategy and earnings reports. We think it’s time for a new narrative.

Let's start rewriting the headlines.

We’re bringing together leaders from business, academia and the analyst community in an idyllic Napa Valley setting, September 14-16, to build supply chain strategies that position businesses to not just survive disruption – but thrive in this era of constant change. Join us for this high-impact event!


This is an invite-only event for senior business leaders. Space is limited. All registrations are subject to review.


Enjoy engaging speakers and specially curated content that’s sure to bring new insights and inspiration. Get in on a timely conversation about the future of supply chain. And network with peers and industry leaders in a place of casual elegance.
