Syspro, Barloworld Logistics, and Bidvest Panalpina Logistics have all signed up to celebrate the 50th birthday of SAPICS, the community for supply chain professionals in southern Africa.
The celebrations will reach a high point at the 38th Annual SAPICS Conference & Exhibition, where conference delegates will have the opportunity to listen to prominent industry experts including André de Ruyter, CEO of Nampak, Lungelo Khumalo from SABMiller Africa, and Bryan Baylis from Merck.
The conference will be held 12-14 June 2016 at the brand new Sun Sky Village at Sun City. The programme will include multiple streams focusing on specific areas of the supply chain including expansion into Africa, warehousing, logistics, big data, software etc.
Local conferences that feature international speakers are still one of the best ways to receive international best practice updates without the time and expense incurred by attending international events. The mix between international and local speakers that will be present during the 2016 SAPICS conference will allow delegates to learn how to overcome similar challenges faced by their own supply chain management concerns.
