From Sept. 8 to 11, the streets of Park City, Utah, will fill with material handling, logistics, and supply chain professionals as Dematic's 28th Material Handling & Logistics Conference gets under way. You don't have to be a Dematic customer to attend, but you must be an end user of supply chain, logistics, and material handling solutions. (Dematic reserves the right to approve attendees.)
The educational component will include more than 50 sessions in six tracks covering leadership, talent, case studies, technology and operational solutions, a hands-on "innovation lab," and warehouse technology. Among the subjects to be addressed are supply chain trends and strategies; warehousing and distribution best practices; "how to" sessions on operational and technical challenges; and financial, human resources, and social issues facing the industry, to name just a few.
Outside the classroom, attendees will hear from consultant Patrick Lencioni on team building, Dr. Marcia Rossell on the global economy, entrepreneur Guy Kawasaki on creating new products and services, and The Container Store's Amy Carovillano on her company's unique corporate culture. Need a break from the technical talk? Outdoor sports, networking receptions, and performances by comedian Jay Leno and rockers REO Speedwagon will fill the bill.
