Sourcing 5.0: New Concepts, New Sourcing
The three D’s that have come for the supply chain: disruption, digitization and distress, have radically restructured the way the apparel industry operates and the role consumers play. While retailers have more mimicked the turtle in this race for the future, savvy consumers have played the rabbit, upending things faster than most companies can adapt.
While that disparity initially resulted in a period of turmoil with doors closing and bleak outlooks, ultimately it ushered in a new energy that’s shaken off the complacency that threatened to leave so many behind. Today, companies are emboldened, creative and experimental, willing to take big risks in a bid for even bigger rewards.
Join us on October 11, 2018 in New York City for Sourcing Journals’s annual Sourcing Summit to discuss the supply chain’s evolution and why a slow-going journey won’t win the race.
The Sourcing Journal Summit is a unique forum that invites supply chain executives to challenge the status quo and welcome new ideas. Through engaging keynotes and dynamic panel discussions, top thought leaders will share their struggles, strategies and successes as they navigate this altered landscape. Presenters will also discuss the kinds of shifts–whether straightforward or radical–that they hope will enable them to stay relevant, offer desirable product and move at the speed of the consumer.
