Las Vegas in August? Sure, it can be pretty darned hot, but don't let that deter you from attending SCOPE West, the Supply Chain Operations Private Exhibition organized by Quartz Events. The event, scheduled for Aug. 21-23, includes panels and presentations featuring industry thought leaders, case studies, and individual meetings with exhibitors.
The event features six conference tracks: consumer goods, retail, industrial, third-party logistics/distribution, information technology, and procurement. Speakers will include high-level supply chain executives from such companies as OfficeMax, Cisco Systems, Colgate Palmolive, Sony Electronics, and Pepsi Beverages (2010 Rainmaker and DC Velocity Editorial Advisory Board member Shekar Natarajan).
