OWIT WEBINAR – Why Trade Matters – Supply Chain Trends of 2017
At the end of 2016, Forbes published an article by Steve Banker identifying supply chain trends to follow in 2017. Now, halfway through 2017, OWIT International‘s supply chain experts will discuss some of these trends, including President Donald Trump’s trade agenda, the “Made in America” supply chain, how e-commerce is or is not reshaping the face of logistics, and automation reducing logistics employees. Join us as we discuss which of these trends are coming to pass, how they are likely to affect trade and business, and what to do about them.
Our guest speakers are ROMAINE SEGUIN and ANNA COLAVITTI. The discussion will be moderated by JENNIFER DIAZ. The webinar will take place on WEDNESDAY, JULY 26 at 12:00 P.m. EST. Members of any OWIT chapter pay a discounted rate of $25.00 and future members of OWIT are charged $40.00. Register now to reserve your space! Bio’s of the speakers are below.
