Supply Chain Matters has a brief update regarding the annual Supply Chain World North America Conference being held on April 13-15, 2013 in Nashville. This conference is sponsored by the Supply Chain Council (SCC), facilitators of the Supply Chain Operations Model (SCOR) and M4SC   Supply Chain World 2014 North America Conferenceframeworks, among others.

Once again, Supply Chain Matters will be one of the media sponsors of this event. 

If you have been considering attending this upcoming educational event, please act now since the very attractive designated hotel conference hotel room rate is selling-out. We received word from SCC that the designated conference hotel, The Inn at Opryland along with the adjacent Gaylord Resort in Nashville now has limited room availability for April 13-15 period.  Alternate lodging has been arranged at the Marriott Airport Nashville.  Please review the conference web site for more specific details.
