The leading event in Africa for supply chain professionals!
An introduction to the SAPICS Conference 2018
For the benefit of parties who have not participated in a SAPICS Conference over the past 40 years, we outline some background information on the nature of the SAPICS Conference of 2018.
The event is known as the leading event in Africa for Supply Chain Professionals for good reason. SAPICS officials scour the globe searching for the most interesting and skilled presenters. Preference is given to relevant case studies and securing a speaker slot each year is increasingly competitive. Papers are submitted months before the event and careful selection is made by a totally impartial Speaker Selection Committee drawn from many sectors of industry.
Other programme inclusions
The Conference programme contains a selection of workshops, mainly on the Sunday afternoon of June 10, for which there is no surcharge. In addition, a variety of fascinating site visits are arranged at a nominal charge, mainly for Wednesday June 13. Pre-booking of both workshops and site visits is required, as there is limited space available. In summary, the programme provides 2.5 days of outstanding presentations, educational workshops, relevant site visits, networking and social activities, designed to enhance delegates’ professional knowledge, experience and standing.
The recently opened Century City Conference Centre is an immaculate modern and upmarket venue with comfortable hotels within walking distance. It has proven attractive to the dedicated conference-goer, free from the unwelcome distractions of golf courses and slot machines. The design of the venue is conducive to constructive networking over the period of 3 days.
The central ground floor area is the scene of a medium-sized exhibition with service providers of many kinds exhibiting. Given that access to the venue as a whole is restricted to registered delegates, it allows for a lengthier and more in-depth exchange between exhibitor and delegate to mutual benefit.
Gala Dinner and Banqueting
Although included for many years in the past, the capacity of the venue does not allow us to schedule a gala dinner. Despite this and unlike many other conferences, delegates are well served with generous and quality cuisine, beverages and entertainment. Unlike many other conferences, we are committed to providing enjoyable and quality social events after the official business of the day concludes.
