Summary Sentence: EMIL and SCOR Sponsor Supply Executive Forum in Shanghai

Full Summary: EMIL and SCOR Sponsor Supply Executive Forum in Shanghai

China’s ascendance as the world’s factory and as a growing consumer market is transforming global commerce and the supply chains that support it. What are the expectations for China’s rise and how are the world’s leading companies preparing for it? What challenges do we face in achieving those visions?

The Supply Chain Council’s Executive Forum provides an excellent opportunity for supply chain executives to share their experiences, challenges and successes with each other. Gain valuable insights from supply chain leaders including Jean-Luc Chereau, President, Carrefour China (Carrefour is the second largest retailer globally and ranks first in 15 main cities in China), Ying Wu, Executive Director, Business Transformation, Global Supply Chain, Lenovo (Lenovo is the largest PC manufacturer in China) and Chris Gubbey, Executive Vice President of SGM and the GM China Group (General Motors is China's top-selling foreign automaker).

Network with Georgia Tech’s EMIL class including Vice Presidents, Directors and Senior Managers from BAX, BMW, Dell, Disney, Ferragamo, Hapag-Lloyd, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Kuehne & Nagel, Lowe’s, Milliken, Motorola, Pitney-Bowes, UPS, etc.

The Council is very honored to have John Vande Vate, EMIL Executive Director, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA, and Takashi Oishi, Senior Expert, NEC Corporation, Japan, as co-chairs for this event. The program also include Breakout Discussion Groups so that attendees may participate in small-group discussion on:

  ·Challenges to Developing National Distribution Networks In China
  ·Challenges for Supplying International Customers In The Face Of Constrained Transport Capacity: Lean Meets Global Sourcing
  ·Anticipating Future Risks: What Will Be The Next Big Supply Chain Disruptions?

The Jin Jiang Hotel is in the "French Quarter" of Shanghai. This is a famous old hotel that was renovated not too long ago. It is ideally located near "Xin tian di" in one of Shanghai's nicer shopping districts.
