2021 WESTERN CANADA

SUPPLY CHAIN WEEK

A Celebration of the People Powering Supply Chains

What is Supply Chain Week?

Supply Chain Week has been proclaimed from May 9 – 15, 2021, in Saskatchewan to recognize and to celebrate an industry that keeps the world moving forward. This year, the Supply Chain Western Canada Institutes are joining in the celebration by hosting a series of storytelling sessions during the Supply Chain Week conference being held from May 10 – 14, 2021.

ABOUT THE EVENT

Based on the success of our Risk & Resiliency Webinar Series that attracted over 400 companies and over 1,100 professionals in supply chain, the Institutes of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba have combined their efforts again to showcase individuals and companies from industry, trade and the logistics services sector.

Supply chain professionals will share their stories from their areas of expertise, which shines a light on the diversity of end-to-end supply chain management activities and raises awareness of career options.

This year’s theme, “A Celebration of the People Powering Supply Chains” reflects the Institutes’ belief that successful organizations have adapted to shifting organizational needs in an efficient and effective way to improve their customer experience.

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the pace at which supply chain professionals need to respond to customer needs and ever-changing market conditions. The conference gives members from every sector multiple learning opportunities that will provide high value through sharing their personal stories and best practices. Attendees will leave the week-long event reinvigorated, motivated, and energized so they can return to their organizations with some new and innovative ideas to share and implement.

Our Goal

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