Building a Resilient Supply Chain Part 5

Beyond COVID: The Future of Your Supply Chain

October 8 – 11:00 am EDT

The global pandemic brought out the best in many manufacturers, but it also showed the weaknesses in the current supply chain. The result has prompted a fresh discussion of how supply chains should be built, how to account for disruptions and how close do you need to keep your supply chain partners—and how close those who use your products need to keep you.

We’ll host a discussion with supply chain experts to discuss the lessons of COVID-19 for manufacturing and how the future of the supply chain may be altered to meet the near-term and long-term realities of a changed world.
