The American SCMS Summit is a hybrid event!

We know that although demand for physical events is high, many companies and countries have travel restrictions in place and may continue to do so for some time. 

So we will be running the American SCMS Summit 2021 as a hybrid event. All content, exhibitor booths and networking sessions will be available live on our cutting edge virtual platform to all registered attendees. 

Please email us for more information or if you have any questions at all.
This year we've decided to merge the agendas for the American Supply Chain Management Strategies and American Manufacturing Strategies Summits, giving you access to all four streams for the price of one pass. 

What does this mean? 
Simply put, you get access to two summits for the price of one. You can attend all live presentations on the day, as well as watching them on-demand after.
