EDItEUR’s 38th International Supply Chain Seminar
The essential pre-Frankfurt mini-conference, focusing on standards for content, metadata and identification, and the message flows that lubricate the physical and digital supply chains.
The successful relaunch of the independent Supply Chain Seminar in 2015 confirmed its place on the Frankfurt calendar for supply chain and metadata specialists. The well-attended 2016 event again delivered a lively, relevant and engaging set of presentations by an international group of expert speakers.
The speaker programme for 2016 focused on real-world case studies of the value of high-quality metadata, the continuing evolution of standards and best practices, and strategies that use technology to extract the most value from the supply chain. The main programme was followed by a reception for all delgates to celebrate 25 Years of EDItEUR.
