Best Logistics and Supply Chain Shows to Attend in 2020

Welcome to 2020! Another new year is upon us and with it is a new list of forthcoming supply chain and logistics trade shows and events. I find that each conference has its own strengths. I’m sure you do as well. Some of the large trade shows or exhibitions are great to see the major suppliers’ offerings – to compare and contrast multiple offerings at one time, in one location. At the same time, some of the smaller events can be more personal and allow attendees to spend quality time on chosen topics and meetings.

Maybe you are looking to attend two logistics shows, back-to-back in the same city to maximize your time and travel spend. Or maybe you want to see who is planning a conference at the same time as your organization. To assist you with your conference planning, we have assembled the following list of conferences that my ARC supply chain colleagues and I consider to be the premier industry conferences scheduled for 2020 – many of which Steve Banker, Chris Cunnane, and I plan to attend ourselves. Feel free to save this webpage to your favorites list for reference through the year. I will be updating it with additional shows as the specific dates and locations are announced.
