Why Attend

"I felt the format of having scheduled one-on-one time with the suppliers was well thought out. There was sufficient time to see if there was some ability to add value, and pursue further discussion. Some of the pairings provided some unexpected directions that could be investigated. I encourage you to retain this format for next year."

Director of Supply Chain, Sherwin-Williams
