FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
"THE SHOW MUST GO ON"
Cleveland, Ohio, USA, July 17, 2020 - SCTECH 2020 Turns to Virtual Global Supply Chain Technology Conference in light of COVID-19 Pandemic
ISCEA – The International Supply Chain Education Alliance mission is focused on education, certification, and recognition. ISCEA operates in more than 86 countries worldwide. The ISCEA Management board has understood the need for support and development of technology expertise within Supply Chain Management. Therefore, SCTECH, introduced in 2016, serves as a vibrant meeting place for supply chain and technology decision-makers. The conference program empowers process owners with knowledge of innovative and successful supply chain trends to make informed technology-selection decisions. The exhibit floor allows attendees to become aware of new alternatives they did not know existed and provides exhibitors with an impressive platform to meet new clients. ISCEA promotes development with certification programs like Certified Supply Chain Technology Professional (CSCTP) and Certified Blockchain for Supply Chain Professional (CBSCP) to name a few.
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed that business success and sustainability are heavily depending on the quality, structure, and efficiency of the implemented and operating supply chains. Therefore, the first virtual SCTECH2020 will make a difference. It is the only 100% online Global Event connecting the worlds of technology expertise and enthusiasm with Supply Chain Professionals and Practitioners. The outstanding 4-day agenda starts with Strategy and is followed by Demand Planning, Risk Mitigation, Integration & Business Planning, and progresses to Sourcing, Logistics & Sustainability. SCTECH2020 will provide deep insights, dynamic exchange, and discussion with experts in Technology and Supply Chain End-to-End. New formats of presentation and discussion will be introduced to promote maximum take-away for speakers as well as participants. We are expecting 20,000 participants this year as the virtual SCTECH allows individuals to take part in the conference regardless of where they may be in the world.
ISCEA is also aware of its global responsibility and the current situation of global job markets. In order to enable all Supply Chain and Technology Professionals and Practitioners worldwide to afford participation, the ticket prices are kept extremely low. Furthermore, ISCEA is committed to supporting the UN Global Compact and will be donating 10% of SCTECH2020 money collected for charity in Education, Health, Sustainability and is reflecting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of UN Global Compact (EHS). SCTECH2020 is honored to feature Ms. Ann Rosenberg presenting the new global impact initiative, SDG Ambition, which was launched in January 2020 at the WEF in Davos. This event, which will take place during UNGA Week, will emphasize the importance of translating the SDGs into business targets to accelerate the achievement of the SDGs.
