During the recession period in 2009, Supply Chain Asia organised a Career Fair in Singapore to connect job-seekers to companies in the supply chain and logistics community.
First organised in 2006, the annual Supply Chain Asia Forum provides an interactive and application oriented platform to bridge the gap of knowledge and needs for supply chain in Asia. Besides engaging senior executives in high level overview of the challenges affecting the industry, those involved in managing and operating supply chain networks and operations will also come together to share their experiences in developing innovative solutions for the industry.
The Forum spans over 3 days and consists of roundtable discussions, workshops, technical tracks and site visits.
