3 Reasons to Attend the riskmethods SCRM Summit in Boston


On October 15, we gathered together in Hamburg for the #1 supply chain risk management conference in Europe. On October 29, we’re moving over to Boston—and it’s not too late for you to join us! Read on to find out why you should.

October is a big month here at riskmethods—because it’s the month of our annual flagship event, the riskmethods Supply Chain Risk Management Summit. We just wrapped up our Hamburg installment, and we’re getting ready to do it all again next week in Boston. 

If you’re thinking about attending but haven’t made your final plans, we’ve got just the thing for you. Here are 3 reasons to join us in Boston at the 3rd annual riskmethods SCRM Summit next week. 

#1: You’ll learn the right way to do SCRM—from the experts who know. 

We get it—the steps around supply chain risk management can vary from company to company and industry to industry. There are lots of different ways to work it into your business processes, and no organization does it exactly the same. That’s why we’re gathering the experts together! This is your chance to learn from the best, understand your options and forge the right path for your company. 

Whether you want to know about the core principles of supply chain risk management or about how SCRM enables initiatives like sub-tier visibility and digital transformation (and more!), you’ll get it all at the Summit. Learn from the best practice guidance of leaders at Rapid Ratings, Spend Matters, Douglas Dynamics and Zurich Insurance Group—just to name a few. 

In Hamburg, our speakers and panelists included representatives from Nokia, Clariant and Mölnlycke Health Care. Check out the photos below to get excited for Boston, and make sure to save your spot today! 


#2. You’ll get all your SCRM questions answered, and find out what questions are plaguing your peers.

Sometimes the best way to learn is to ask questions—and to hear the questions that other people are asking. Whether it’s at the pre-event Ghosts & Gravestones Tour, the networking reception, break-out sessions or around the table during snack breaks (yes, there will be chocolate!), you’ll have ample opportunity to network with industry leaders and other practicing professionals.  

At our Hamburg event, we were thrilled to see how eager our attendees were to hear about each other’s experiences. Topics of conversation ranged from specific risk events that occurred to the way that attendees have worked supply chain risk management into all of their procurement and supply chain processes—and even how to best organize risk-related meetings.  

#3. You’ll see the future of supply chain risk management. 

No, we don’t have a crystal ball. Actually, we have something better: We have the tools to shape the future of supply chain risk management ourselves. And with your help, that’s what we intend to do. Hear our vision for SCRM—and don’t miss the opportunity to tell us your own. We believe that, when it comes to reliable supply networks, we’re all in this together. So let’s get riskbusting!
