Supply Chain Week 2013 boasts record numbers

GS1 Australia’s Supply Chain Week 2013 attracted record crowds in Sydney and Melbourne this month.

Supply chain professionals and business owners from multiple industries across Australia gathered for the annual event.

Supply Chain Week is designed to assist in driving efficiencies and reduce costs for Australian businesses by exploring new global GS1 standards and services.

Now in its 4th year, more than 1200 people registered to attend Supply Chain Week 2013 across two weeks from September 9 to 20 in Melbourne and Sydney – breaking all attendance records since its debut in 2009.

The theme of Supply Chain Week 2013 was to integrate, innovate and be inspired while networking and connecting with key players to discover the latest practical supply chain insights and new industry initiatives – all in one place.

Maria Palazzolo, GS1 Australia’s CEO said: “This year’s program delivered a great learning opportunity with high profile keynote speakers, interactive seminars, real-life case studies, the launch of new products and services and how the implementation of GS1 standards will continue to bring great value to businesses in 2013 and beyond.

“Covering the areas of Healthcare, Transport and Logistics, Food & Beverage, Greenlife, Consumer Goods and Education & Training, attendees had access to the latest supply chain insights and the launch of new products.”

Supply Chain Week 2013 closed with the official launch of the newly inaugurated GS1 Institute, which marks the consolidation of years of member training in the GS1 System into a program of specialised education and training curriculum.

The Institute aims to educate and train Australian businesses in supply chain and logistics best practices.
