2022 SUPPLY CHAIN

CAREER EXPO
& CONVOCATION

Connecting Supply Chain Professionals and Industry Experts

What is the Supply Chain Career Expo & Convocation?

Hosted by the Supply Chain Canada Institutes of Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Northern Territories and New Brunswick, we invite you to Supply Chain Career Expo & Convocation 2022 and the Supply Chain Excellence Forum presented by Flint.

This two-day conference will occur in person in Calgary on November 2 and in Edmonton on November 3, 2022, with sessions streamed virtually. This event is our ongoing effort to celebrate and support the career development of the people powering supply chains across industry, trade and logistics services sectors.

NOVEMBER 2-3, 2022

ABOUT THE EVENT

Based on the success of our annual Supply Chain Week Conference which attracted over 400 companies and over 1,100 professionals in supply chain, the Institutes of AB, SK, MB, NT & NB have combined their efforts again to network individuals and companies from industry, trade and the logistics services sector.

With Supply Chain Canada’s national membership base of supply chain professionals spanning all levels of experience, and Flint’s knowledge and expertise in the energy and industrial sectors, our goal is to reach innovative and driven supply chain leaders for good conversations and growth.

We remain committed to connecting supply chain professionals nationwide for networking opportunities and to continue advancing the future of Canadian supply chains through up-skilling and drawing on our diverse talent pool to share best practices and expertise.

CONFERENCE COMPONENTS INCLUDE:

Supply Chain Excellence Forum

Join our Day 1 Presenting Sponsor Flint as they facilitate an exciting day of Ted Talk-style speaker sessions in Calgary with a moderated panel discussion following each key topic. This senior leadership-level strategic forum is designed to address key focus areas in the supply chain landscape. As senior leaders in this pivotal post-Covid space we will need to adapt, adjusting our perspective to address challenges in 2023 and beyond. Learn more here.

Our Goal

To provide best-in-class learning opportunities for Supply Chain Career Expo & Convocation attendees. The line up of presentations will be diverse and practical. Presenters will be those who were involved directly in achieving the results.

This year, we begin the transition back to in-person events and welcome you to reconnect with your peers in person in Calgary on Day 1 at the BMO Centre and Day 2 in Edmonton, location TBD. For our wider membership and networking base, we will be offering a user-guided virtual experience for the morning and afternoon sessions through cloud-based Remo Conference software.
