The #1 Supply Chain Risk Management Summit in Europe

Empowering leaders to create reliable supply networks

15 October 2019 | Hamburg





What to Expect from the 3rd SCRM Summit


Our 2019 theme is “Unite & Inspire”, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. Join us in Hamburg 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.​ ​

We are delighted to have Peter Smith, founder of Procurement Excellence Ltd and former managing editor of Spend Matters UK/Europe, as your host in Hamburg this year. Learn more about this year's speakers, who will inspire you with their visions of how to make all supply networks more reliable. ​

Pre-Summit Event:​ An Evening of Gourmet Networking à la SCRM​

Procurement and supply chain experts know it’s all about being in the right place at the right time. That’s why we hope you’ll join riskmethods and your peers for an unforgettable networking dinner at VLET Cooking School in the Emporio Tower.

October 14, 2019 | 7 pm to 11 pm
VLET Cooking School
Dammtorwall 15, 20355 Hamburg

Innovative ideas will be flowing even before the Summit officially begins. Philip Rebelsky, Chef de cuisine at VLET in der Speicherstadt, has received high acclaim from the French restaurant guide Gault&Millau and Austrian magazine Falstaff for his imaginative cuisine. He and his team will show you how to cook masterfully executed delicacies at various cooking stations. Or you can enjoy drinks on the terrace and soak in the ambience of the cooking school as you indulge in modern twists on traditional recipes from Hamburg and other regions in Northern Germany.

Watch as an evening of delicious supply chain management unfolds before your very eyes. Your hosts will create both the sweet and the savory “just in time” for you to taste and also treat you to an extensive cheese buffet. The VLET team uses lean methods for sustainable cooking, turning raw materials into a distinctive culinary treat for the end consumer. No need for risk management here. You’ll want to take inventory and try each and every creation.
