LEARNING EVENTS TO CONSIDER

Events and Seminars

September 10-15, 2018:  Chicago, IL:  The International Manufacturing Technology show includes 4 co-located shows as well.  McCormick Place can be overwhelming, but a well-planned visit to this industrial show provides exposure, information, and meaningful discussions. I’d love to attend but will be involved in Leadership Development at West Point that same week.

September 30 – Oct 2, 2018:  Chicago, IL:  The APICS annual supply chain and logistics conference provides multiple days to interact with your peers from around the world. The basis of content this year is the six elements of the SCOR model: Plan, Source, Make, Deliver, Return, Enable.  This event conflicts with a learning opportunity I will be attending in NYC these same dates; otherwise I’d plan to attend.

October 22-23, 2018:  San Diego, CA:  The annual American Manufacturing Summit will provide experts and suppliers related to lean strategies, digitization of manufacturing, and agile responsive production. An attached American Supply Chain conference is attached. Hoping to attend the European version in late November (see below).

October 29-November 1, 2018:  San Diego, CA:  The Association for Manufacturing Excellence annual conference is out west this year.  As always it provides keynotes, plant visits, practitioner presentations, and many effective networking opportunities. Reserve and pay before June 30 for discounted fees. I will attend this conference all week.

November 26-28, 2018:  Berlin, Germany:  If you really want to branch out and see what others around the world are doing, attend this European version of the American Manufacturing Summit and attached supply chain summit. This one  has been around longer and incorporates truly advanced thinking. Trying to work attendance here into my schedule. What an opportunity!
