CAPS Supply Management Roundtable – North America
Connect with companies like yours at CAPS Strategy Exchanges, as we take a deep-dive on one specific topic or industry. We discuss what other companies are doing well, what you can work on now, and what the future looks like. Current industry meetings include Oil & Gas, Aerospace & Defense, and Health Sector.
Play a critical role in driving the CAPS research and benchmarking agendas. CAPS taps the expertise and interests of member companies to identify key topics and issues of growing importance to ensure our reports are always relevant, practitioner-focused, and practically-applicable.
Learn about a specific topic in real-time with experts in the supply management field. Avoid travel costs and get answers to your questions as we explore strategies and best practices in order for you to advance in your organization.
If you have a question about any of our global events or how the CAPS event program could serve your organization, feel free to reach out.
