BEST VALUE FOR MONEY The Council independent and not-for-profit approach guarantee that you get the best deal in a conference program. The Council is committed to educate the supply chain profession in China. Why should you pay more than US$ 1,000 for a conference when the Council provides the same format, quality and speakers, 5-stars hotel setting for a fraction of that cost!

MARKET-LEADING EVENTS Our events are conceived, developed and launched in close consultation with industry experts to ensure that they are timely, relevant and directly targeted to market needs. And we are at the forefront of innovation, with an aggressive launch programme, averaging some 10 new events annually.

UNRIVALLED SUPPLY CHAIN KNOWLEDGE Unlike other conferences organizers, we do truly understand supply chain management. Our board of directors and management is comprised of leading supply chain professionals with an average of 10 years experience in supply chain, sourcing or logistics operations in Asia. The Council is on the forefront of the profession and that's why our themes and topics are fresh and innovative.

SUPPORT TEAM EDUCATION Reasonable prices allow all executives, not only the top management, to learn and network in a high quality 5-stars hotel setting. And because supply chain management encompasses several departments and functions in your company, the Council is in unique position to support team learning and influence decision-making.

CONVENIENT 1-DAYFORMAT If you are sponsor or a speaker, you know that you may loose up to 50% of your audience in the second day. So, if you think that the traditional 2-days conference format is too long, then switch to the Council events. Knowing your time is important, we produce well-researched and high-quality conferences allowing busy executives like you to get the essential knowledge and key contacts you need in just 1 day...

LOCAL & PRACTICAL CONTENT The Council spends time and efforts to select speakers who have strong local and practical business experience. Vendors speaking are required to present highly practical case studies and sales pitches are not allowed. With such a line-up of experienced practitioners, you'll bring back highly applicable and practical information to advance your supply chain operations.

MEDIUM-SIZE EVENTS FOR BETTER NETWORKING The Council recognizes that meeting the right people is as important as getting the relevant knowledge and all our events feature the ideal networking environment. Our focus is always on providing delegates, speakers and sponsors with an intimate, interactive experience and this is why we prefer medium size groups. Attendees tend to shy away when the events are too large and busy and our most successful events had between 50 to 80 delegates.

WE RESPECTYOUR PRIVACY Unlike other organizers, we don't have telemarketing people working on endless listings and we don't chase or annoy people with phone calls. Why should we after all? We offer the best value for money conferences in China and you can make your own decision when you see the value.

Domestic Logistics and Transportation China and India logistics costs and complexity are eroding the advantages gained from the much-touted low labor costs, discouraging some manufacturers to move further inland and forcing them to work with multiple service providers to match suppliers and customers requirements and geography.

After years of easy expansion, coastal China, and particularly the Pearl River and Yangtze River deltas, are facing growing pains. Labor and land costs are rising fast in tier-1 cities, with commercial rents up nearly 40% over the past 3 years, while industrial or logistics space is simply not available.
