AMR Research Announces Inaugural Supply Chain Executive Conference 2010 in Europe

September 13-14, Lancaster London Hotel, London, UK

   AMR Research, a Gartner, Inc. company, today announced its Supply Chain Executive Conference 2010, to be held in London at the Lancaster London hotel on September 13-14.

At the conference, AMR Research analysts will outline how leading organizations have succeeded and chart a road map for supply chain excellence. This will include showcasing proven best practices in acquiring and maintaining talent, building efficient business processes and getting value from supporting technology investments.

"Today's supply chain executives are responsible not only for containing costs, but supporting companies' profitable growth. This requires constantly making the right trade-offs between costs, risks, customer satisfaction, sustainability and profitability," said Kevin O'Marah, conference chair and chief strategy officer at AMR Research. This year's theme is around visibility, flexibility and sustainability — three prerequisites for supply chain excellence. To build these foundations, organizations must become more demand-driven, establish collaboration with trading partners, and build responsive, sustainable supply chains.
