What is the riskmethods SCRM Summit?

The riskmethods Supply Chain Risk Management Summit is a global, industry-leading conference centered around the prevention and mitigation of risk in supply chains. Our 2019 theme is “Unite & Inspire,” and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Join us in Boston to tackle the supply chain risk issues that unite procurement, supply chain and risk management professionals—so that we can work together to develop the inspirational solutions that will reduce risk for all businesses:

  • Brainstorm ways to elevate supply chain risk management to an enterprise risk management topic.
  • Learn how supply chain risk management makes essential procurement and supply chain processes better and more comprehensive.
  • Find out why supply chain risk management is a cornerstone of a resilient enterprise.
  • See how digital transformation is a driving force behind supply chain risk management, paving the way for advanced technology like AI and machine learning to make the global supply network more reliable.
  • Learn why compliance and corporate social responsibility considerations are key elements of managing supply chain risk.
