Published: Feb 21, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 21, 2013) — Some of the biggest corporate names in logistics will be part of the third annual Supply Chain Forum being hosted on Friday, March 8, by the Executive Education Center (EEC) of the University of Kentucky's Gatton College of Business and Economics.  Featured speakers at the day-long event to be held at Fasig-Tipton in Lexington include leading executives from UPS and LeanCor.

 

The theme for the day's activities is "Transforming Supply Chains" and includes an in-depth look at several major topics:

  • Your Supply Chain Delivered
  • Bringing Manufacturing Back on Shore
  • Lean Leadership
  • Merging Your Supply Chains

A panel discussion on Agility and Flexibility Needs in Supply Chain will include panelists from Lexmark, Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky, and Procter & Gamble.

 

In addition, representatives from General Electric, American Standard, Valvoline, Sylvania, Tempur-Pedic, and Humana are participating in the forum.

 

"This outstanding event gets better each year," said Harvie Wilkinson, director of Gatton's EEC and MBA programs.  "This truly is an all-star lineup which will enable industry professionals from throughout Kentucky and beyond to learn from the best in the business."

 

UK's Supply Chain Forum runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, March 8.  It is open to all and requires a registration fee.  $135 pays for all materials, continental breakfast, lunch, and refreshments.  A reduced fee of $95 is offered if you register two or more people.

   

In addition, the EEC is offering a special discount price of $95 for UK faculty, staff and students. The promo code for UK employees and students to register on the website is SPCHWDisc3-8-2013.
