The 26th Annual ARC Industry Forum
Accelerating Supply Chain Digital Transformation and Sustainability

February 15-16, 2022 - Orlando, Florida

March 9-10, 2022 - Online

Your mandate is transformation. Your goal is business breakthrough.  Join us to speed up your progress with strategies and stories from the digital front lines.

As we return to a new normal, supply chain innovation is accelerating at an unprecedented rate.  We have experienced more transformation in supply chain operations over the last year than in the past decade.  Ecommerce, omnichannel, and last mile delivery volumes exploded; dark stores and micro-fulfilment automation emerged from the shadows; borders closed and tariffs spiked; upstream suppliers went out of business; radical fluctuations in demand occurred, both up and down depending on the product; container shortages impacted global routes; and warehouse and transportation operations found it difficult to find and retain workers. 

Accelerating Supply CHainNever has the term “supply chain management” been more bandied about.  Board room executives now understand how profoundly critical supply chain agility and business resilience is to success.  Digital leaders have now validated their strategies against the real-world challenges brought on by the pandemic and are accelerating their innovation and transformation initiatives. 

Meanwhile, a renewed focus on sustainability, the circular economy, and climate change is sparking innovation and powering transformational and technological change across the supply chain. 

Technologies like machine learning, autonomous trucking, warehouse and factory robotics, a new generation of control towers, public cloud networks, real-time supply chain risk alerts, predictive ETAs, and a new generation of supply chain planning and execution applications is changing the art of the possible. 

Governance and compliance, workforce and skills, customer-centricity, change management, and competitive excellence, all need management attention. Seeking to be among the winners in the new normal, executives charged with driving transformation are seizing this moment to innovate and deliver real value.  Call it digital transformation, a supply chain revolution, or Industry 4.0, there is a rush to innovate, transform, and accelerate the future.   

Is your organization prepared to deal with the new normal?   

Join us at the 26th Annual ARC Industry Forum – either in person or remotely – to discover what your peers and industry leaders are doing today and what steps they are taking to prepare for the future.  
 

Attendee Perspectives

The ARC forum has been a great opportunity to learn about new innovation in digitalization, connectivity, and solutioning.  The conference provides a great level of insight to the real implementation stories, the lessons learned from initiative implementation, and the value delivered to organizations.  The combination of research content, peer networking, and presentations provides a solid level of value that organizations can understand and subsequently investigate the potential value gained within their organizations.
