SCM Logistics World 2009 enjoys overwhelming turnout despite downturn
Story 5 - Review

Going against the conventional trade exhibition route, Supply Chain Management (SCM) Logistics World 2009 enjoyed an overwhelming turnout as delegates from across the world came
together with more focus on issues that really mattered to them, in light of the economic climate.
SCM Logistics World 2009 was held from October 5-8 at Raffles City Convention Centre, Singapore.

The organiser Terrapinn Pte Ltd did away with the usual exhibition to focus on conference sessions highlighting key issues faced by the supply chain and logistics industry, providing delegates
with more opportunities for business meetings and networking with other practitioners and sponsors in a more“targeted and exposed environment”.

Despite the economic downturn, about 460 delegates attended the show, among them senior decision makers and key organisation personnel, noted Stella Teo, general manager of aviation, transport, logistics and supply chain division at Terrapinn.

“That actually sends a very strong message to the industry, that senior decision makers and key personnel are committed to driving better supply-chain excellence in their organisation … because now, more than ever before, supply chain plays an important role in the business.”
