“Excellent event! Everything was 5-star! The accommodations, location, food, service, Vendors, Speakers and Conference staff were all incredible. In my 20 plus years of attending Conferences, this was by far the best one ever.” 

Corp IT Business Manager Supply Chain, Osh Kosh Corporation

“This was easily the best conference I have ever attended. Everything from how well it was organized, to its innovative marketing, its top-notch presentations, and wonderful receptions and meals…”

Distribution Services Manager, Lennox Industries, Inc.

“This was my first event where you had appointments to see the various vendors. I loved it. Everyone I talked to was a candidate for doing business with us and they all had something different to offer. Most productive I've ever felt attending any conference!”

Corporate IT, Johnson Bros. Bakery Supply

“Organization, location, sponsor set-up with appointments, food. All very good - one of best conferences I have been to. Well done.”

Director, Supply Chain Optimization, The Coca-Cola Company

"As a first time attendee, I wasn't sure what to expect. Simply stated, "I found the event to be one of the best I have ever attended!" Compelling 'real life' situations, solutions and plans of action at major corporations that were shared with all delegates during the Roundtable discussions, terrific presenters/presentations and a "Who's Who of Supply Chain" was much more rewarding then I expected. A well-run innovative event that I would certainly promote. I plan to attend again and would highly recommend to other Supply Chain Execs!"

Director Supply Chain, Strategy & Procurement, Pall Corp.

"I was very impressed by the content discussed in at SCOPE WEST. This isn't just another Supply Chain conference!! My ability to interact and network with executives both in and outside my industry was unrivaled when compared to other conferences I've attended."

Vice President Supply Chain & Corporate Quality, Stratus Technolgies, Inc.

“The event was beyond all expectations and I can only hope to be invited again to East or West! I cannot wait to access some of the amazing slides I saw (Roddy’s especially!). They will help me greatly in my message here at Globe…!  And I just know that my continuing exchanges with 3 service providers I met in Orlando will bring us additional savings. Finally, in addition of the luxuriant surroundings, the hotel staff was one of the nicest I have ever seen across the world and + 20 years of travels. My warmest THANK YOU again for your most professional organization and above all your generous attention to all our needs.”

Director of Logistics, Globe Electric

“I found the format far superior to any typical trade-show. Instead of wandering a hall, finding a vendor I wanted to talk to, and then having to wait in line to speak, I simply showed up at the booth at the appointed time and had an uninterrupted discussion with the vendor I was interested in. It was a great use of my time.”

Chief Operating Officer,

"An excellent opportunity to be exposed to potential solution providers for your supply chain practice."

President – Redistribution Centers, Sysco Corporation

“I have attended several conferences, but none can match the format of SCOPE East 2011. What impressed me most about the format were the scheduled appointments with preselected vendors. And during the time I was not at a scheduled meeting I was able to attend one of the educational presentations. Another interesting positive aspect of the format was actively engaging in the Big Question Think Tanks”.

Supply Support Branch Manager, Naval Air Warfare Center - Training System Division

“The overall format is brilliant. It fosters great interaction and education. The venue was great as well.”

Supply Chain Lead Business Analyst, PSS World Medical

“The 30-minutes ‘speed dating’ format was a huge success and much preferred by both us and the vendors we met with compared to the unscheduled casual exhibit booth conversations that have occurred in the past. The quality of the speakers and the content of their presentations hit the nail on the head. The hotel setting certainly contributed to attendees’ comfort, so they were very open, gracious, interactive. Gala dinner was superb!”

President, Bayley Organics

“I thought it was a GREAT event. Well organized, just the right amount of time to visit vendors and presentations were topical and relevant.”

Director, Operational Excellence, Gates Corporation

“The Scope East event was an excellent venue for meeting a number of key suppliers on a more personal basis and to develop relationships with other professionals in Logistics. This was the most professional and yet personal event I've attended in the last 10 years.”

Director of National Distribution, Boars Head Provisions

“This event was put together so well that it ran like clock work. Enjoyed every single minute of it. The location was fabulous, the people attending of the highest caliber and the presenters/exhibitors were so knowledgeable and helpful. Well done.”

VP Operations, Thymes

"I learned so much from the Redcats representatives. The networking was SO valuable. I really want to advance Supply Chain at my company so it was helpful to hear all the context and applicability surrounding all the APICS buzzwords from lean to Value Chain Planning, Demand Planning, Demand Triggers to S&OP. I found the conference to be quite valuable. I took tons of notes to share with my company SC leadership. I loved the booklet for our sessions and the vendors. I have already sat with a couple of SC peers and we poured through the book looking at the bio of each vendor. SO helpful and well done! The conference management and all the staff were exceptional! Thank you!"

Director Information Technology, AutoZone

"The format of appointments with vendors worked well, you can get a good feel in 20-30 minutes whether they have something that could possibly help. There were a couple that we have follow up confernce calls with this week."

Director Distribution, Shaw Industries

"The structure is excellent. It keeps your day busy and focused with having everything scheduled in advance. The venue chosen was excellent."

Director-Supply Chain, Global Faucets, Kohler Company

“Made some really good contacts and had some great discussion with peers from other industries that were having some similar problems. Learned a lot about how others improved their supply chain, some things I can implement in my own world. Hopefully I will seem some of these faces again next year.

Manager, Retail Operations, Talbots

“I really thought that the scheduled meetings were very beneficial. They were just short enough to force both parties to define the areas of common interest and yet long enough to allow some "what if" scenarios. The meetings were perhaps the most productive sessions I have ever experienced at an industry show. Great Idea!”

President, Warwick Fulfillment Solutions

“Very innovative structure to the program with Key Note Speeches, education sessions, and one-on-one with suppliers. I enjoyed all the interaction.”

Director Logistics, Schneider Electric

“The accommodations were outstanding. The vendor 1:1 meetings were much better then I anticipated. I walked away with a couple solutions that my company is currently investigating.”

Director, Supply Chain Operations, Bracco Diagnostics, Inc.

“The meetings that I had were very productive. I learned more about the companies I talked to and can see that I will be doing business with at least some of them in the near future.”

Director of Distribution, Quality Bicycle Products

"Over all this is one of the best conferences I have attended, very well organized, suppliers and attendees were very engaged. This is an event that I will recommend to others. Well done"

Vice President Distribution and Logistics, MDV - Nash Finch

"The event was well organized and the format worked well with matching business needs with potential vendors."

Logistics Manager, American Honda

"This was my first time attending this conference and I impressed with the organization of the conference and meetings. The meetings with the exhibitors were informative and unintimidating which allowed me gain a better insight into each companies unique offering. Thank you for the invitation!"

Vice President Logistics, GSC Logistics

"The speed dating aspect of the vendor meetings was very helpful. We had each other's undivided attention, and much more collaborative conversations took place in these timed meetings than any conference I have ever attended. It's a very productive format."

Director of Logistics, Best Buy Canada

"Excellent use of my time. Once again, SCOPE has improved the conference by adding additional tracks, each with more educational opportunities than ever before. SCOPE is hands-down the best managed, first-class conference available, as evidenced by the attendee growth year over year."

Commodity Manager, Watlow

“Nice cross section of vendors/types. Time was sufficient for meetings with vendors. iPad raffle was fun and well handled…”

Director, Engineering, Tiffany & Co.

“I liked the 20-minute ‘speed dating’ process with the companies...good for them and us. Very effective as an initial intro.”

Director of Strategic Initiatives, Watsco Inc.

“Well-managed, good venue, good format, appropriate information sent in advance. Keep up the great work. Would like to attend again in future!”

Senior Manager- Quality & HW Operations, Hewlett Packard

“Once again, the appointment forum was wonderful, and the 25 minute time slots were just long enough to determine if a follow up meeting would be appropriate. The networking opportunities were wonderful. This is one of the few events where professional networking was actually possible. I suspect the success is largely because of the comfortable environment you provided and the ideal size of the group. The cocktail times worked extremely well. The quality of the meals was greatly appreciated. The iPad giveaway was a very nice touch.”

Director of Sponsor Donor Services, Compassion International

“Excellent venue; well laid out and well planned. Would definitely recommend the event and venue to others.”

Director Quality, GOJO Industries

"The ability to meet with such a diverse spectrum of the Supply Chain vertical was well worth the time spent at SCOPE-West. The vendors present really provided solutions and not just marketing hype."

CIO, Bennett International Group

"As a first time attendee to SCOPE, I found the format to be much more engaging than typical trade show event. The format for keynote speakers, educational breakout sessions, and the structured meetings with specific vendors was absolutely the best way to go and best use of my time. I will return to future SCOPE events and recommend this event to all of my Supply Chain colleagues."

Director of Logistics, GOJO Industries, Inc.

"The 2010 exposition at Las Vegas was my first experiment with SCOPE. I greatly enjoyed and will follow up with several potential partners I met there. The organization of the event was very professional. The possibility to customize the learning session and meeting agenda greatly improved the value of these 2 days. I highly recommend this exposition as far you as take the time to align your agenda with your specific needs. I am looking forward to participate to the next SCOPE and I'll bring more folks from my company in order to multiply the learning possibilities."

Director of Operations, Kontron Canada Inc.

"The opportunity to talk with representatives from cutting edge technology companies helped greatly to update my knowledge of what's becoming available. This is extremely helpful in that we are considering new ideas for a future distribution center. The quality of all the presenters was top notch and their ideas have led to viewing new opportunities at my facility. Thank you!"

Director of Operations, OfficeMax

"Fantastic format, content and venue. Best conference I have ever attended. Great use of time. It is obvious there was a lot of thought that went into preparing for each attendee. I like the solution focused nature of the conference and am certain we will have new suppliers to work with on upcoming initiatives."

Vice President Strategic Initiatives, AGI In Store/American Greetings

"The event was first class and provided something for everyone. It was set in an exciting place which I believe added excitement to the event and gave people something fun to do while not in the actual venue. I would recommend the Conference to anyone in the Supply Chain field as both an educational tool and partnering tool."

Director of Supply Chain Management, Zeochem LLC

“Enjoyed meeting one on one with the software providers. Was good to have that time to ask pointed questions and get a response that was meaningful to me and addressed my company's particular issues.”

Manager, Supply Chain Strategy & Operations, Disney

“Overall it was very beneficial and educational, especially the vendor meetings. I thought they were perfect length (15-20 mins) and most of them were very relevant to my business. The fact that the conference is free and that one hotel night is paid for went a long way to persuading my employer to send me. Also, I liked the breakfasts.”

Sr. Project Manager, United HealthGroup

“The event was excellent. I enjoyed the keynotes. I also thought the scheduled meetings with vendors was very productive. The venue was also very good.”

IT Manager, Venchurs, Inc.

“We really liked the appointments with vendors as it gave us an opportunity to be matched up with companies that we may not have been aware of. It also gave us time to talk to the vendors instead of waiting in line only to find out they were not a company we were interested in talking too.”

Director of Operations, Warwick Fulfillment Solutions

“The concept is very well designed and the educational sessions were great.”

Logistics Manager, RTI International

“I really enjoyed and learned a lot from the 25 minute sessions with the vendors.”

Director Manufacturing Excellence, MillerCoors 

"The event provided an excellent cadre of experts in which to share ideas or gain perspective. I really appreciated the talent pool at the conference."

Corporate Director of Strategic Sourcing, FMOL Healthy System

"I initially was expecting the "hard sell" during the vendor meetings, but found them to be enlightening. I was not being "sold", I was, for the most part, being listened to and informed."

Logistics Analyst, Bender Group

"The dedicated appointments were vital to making the event valuable. Vendors were prepared and knew who you were before arriving for meetings. Improved the productivity of these meetings."

Vice President Supply Chain, Superior Uniform Group

"I certainly enjoyed attending the SCOPE conference. It gave me insight into the latest developments in the rapidly changing supply chain field. It was an excellent way to meet with peers, suppliers, and industry leaders to learn and network in an effort to improve how my company views and manages it's supply chain. I look forward to attending future events."

Vice President Merchandise Planning, Dunham's Sport

"I thought this was an excellent use of my time. I made several connections with people and companies that will help me develop improvement plans for my DC."

Operations Manager, Smart & Final

"It is great that the agenda is custom tailored to your profile and needs, allows you to make the most efficient use of both your time and the supplier's. On a traditional trade show you would not know which booth to visit, and also you can not guarantee that you will meet the correct vendors for your specific supply chain needs, needless to say the quality and selection of the vendors might vary from one trade show to another, and it was a nice surprise to meet only top vendors in SCOPE."

ERP IT Manager, Honeywell

"It's innovative, bringing win-win for both sides of the table. It's effective and efficient, making my days much less stressed. It's focused, like single's party, cutting down all the BS. It's match-making, we each know what we are looking for ahead of time. It's results-producing; I went away with a very good sense whom I am sending my RFQ to."

Manager, Prog & Analysis, Fluidmaster, Inc.

"Over all this is one of the best conferences I have attended, very well organized, suppliers and attendees were very engaged. This is an event that I will recommend to others. Well done."

Global Director, Supply chain & Quality Processes, Honeywell International

"The one on one vender meetings were a great way to communicate with vendors and really discuss possible solutions."

Regional Finanace Manager, Dreyer's Grand Ice Cream

"Truly well organized event, with very current and relevant topics. Strong educational component, great cross section of industry leading vendors. Compliments to Scope East management team."

Vice President, PRC Industries, Inc.

“…The working sessions were great and the appointments led to more interest mutually than expected. All in all definitely worth the time commitment.”

Director, IT Planning & Governance, HP

“I felt the event was very beneficial. I really liked how the agenda was preset with meetings based on companies that you selected to meet with at the conference. It was fast-paced and kept you busy the entire 2 days, not long and drawn out like I have been to before. The mixers were a great opportunity to meet people and discuss common issues. The location couldn't have been a better choice. I felt the accommodations at the hotel were excellent…”

Materials Quality Manager, Venchurs

“This is the first time I attended such an event. I enjoyed the set-up and found the vendor meetings informative...”

Director of Distribution and Quality Assurance, CXtec

VP Worldwide Logistics & Distribution, Talbots

VP Operations and Supply Chain, Jarden Home Brands

“SCOPE 2009 was the best SCOPE conference yet, I can fully understand why participation increased 60% this year while other conferences have declined. The educational sessions have improved to a level consistent with any cutting edge Supply Chain conference, including top notch speakers. Further, the pre-programmed supplier sessions are an efficient and effective way to meet many suppliers, without wasting time with suppliers who don't provide services you require. As I approached the conference registration desk, I was greeted by name by the conference employee. She only sees me 2 days annually, yet remembered by name, adding a unique personal touch to the conference. Toby and Staff set the bar for Supply Chain Conferences!”

Commodity Manager, Watlow

“I have used some of the suggestions and examples in my company already. It has opened up my thought process around supply chain.”  

Distribution Manager, Land O Lakes

“This conference was well organized and informative for my requirements. It is the best that I've attended in over 20 years. I can't wait for Scope 2010.” 

Director, Logistics, Sherson Group

“Instead of wandering a convention trying to find someone to talk to at a company booth/display about that company's capabilities/services, you have dedicated focused time to speak to companies which you are interested in and who are interested in your business.”

Director, The Walt Disney Company

“I felt the format of having scheduled one-on-one time with the suppliers was well thought out. There was sufficient time to see if there was some ability to add value, and pursue further discussion. Some of the pairings provided some unexpected directions that could be investigated. I encourage you to retain this format for next year.

Regional Director of Supply Chain, Sherwin-Williams

“This year's SCOPE event was great experience. Fantastic opportunity to get more insights into key initiatives within industry and some great feedback from presenters on solutions that can rapidly improve any Supply Chain organization. I really enjoyed great variety of presentations which spanned from strategic level overviews down to tactical level project management summaries. Very interesting model of linking vendors, presenters and attendees. Job well done.”

Director of Supply Chain, Virgin Mobile Canada

“I would like to sincerely thank you for the arrangements you made to accommodate me at the conference, and the personalized service which your staff provided. As I had mentioned, the conference was an excellent platform to exchange various ideas especially in light of the current global financial turmoil. To sum it up all, GREAT CONFERENCE, EXCELLENT VENUE, WELL ORGANIZED, & so, Hats off to you and your excellent team!!”

Corporate Materials Manager, MULTIFORMS L.L.C.,

“The event exceeded my expectations - well planned out and organized, it was worth my time.

Vice President, Operations, Slam Brands

“I have attended many trade shows from CES, NADA to AdTech, but I have to say given the format and the value realized that SCOPE West is to date the best show I have attended.

I wanted to thank you and your team for putting on such an outstanding event.  I commend you all for your hard work and I am very I was able to attend the event.”

Business Quality Analyst, The Cosmopolitan Resort & Casino

Found several sources that are being considered. I look forward to attending again.”

Vice President, First Logistics LLC

“The supplier "speed" meetings were effective when paired with someone of mutual interest. The quick exchange kept the conversation focused and to the point. Valuable information exchanged in a short time. If real connection, plenty of opportunity to get more in depth later in the conference.”

Director of Supply Chain Management, In N Out Burger

“The event was well organized with a very well done Agenda. The focus was ideal for Supply Chain Executives.”

Vice President, Global Supply Chain, Alcon Laboratories

The number of vendors and the total over all variety of possible connections, met all of my expectations and needs for potential new vendor support. If possible I am looking forward to attending again next year.”

“I was not sure what to expect, and I got more than I hoped. Presentations were insightful and vendor appointments were enlightening. There are clearly many vendors who are well positioned to help us grow, whether we take the steps now or in the future.”

IT Operations Manager,

“Excellent job by everyone. The hotel staff were fantastic. The venue was beautiful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The event itself was organized well, however the strictness of following a specific path did prevent me from hearing some discussions. I understand why and the presentations will be available online, so not a big deal, but worth mentioning that I felt a bit restricted. Networking with other companies was interesting if not beneficial.”

Transportation Analyst, Mead Johnson Nutrition

“I liked the fact that my personal schedule was prepared for me so that I knew in advance the sessions that best meet my interests. Overall the conference was well organized and I really enjoyed it.”

Director, Supply Chain, Seagate Technology

Vice President of Operations, Duncan Enterprises

“Far better format than walking by booths being yelled at like a fair.”

“I may purchase from 1 supplier. I am scheduling meetings now.”

Global Director of Supply Chain and Business Process Management - Chemical Division, Milliken & Co.

Sr. Manager - Returns Operation, L.L. Bean, Inc.

“Very good networking opportunity”

VP Distribution and QA, Einstein Noah Restaurant Group

“I want to reiterate the effectiveness of the pre-arranged meetings with vendors. I had never experienced anything like that. In general, everyone was accessible and there wasn't the clique-y feeling I often have at conferences.”

Logistics Manger, North West Pipe

"SCOPE West was an effective opportunity to make great contacts in an efficient, productive format. The show provided access to many supply chain related solutions in a way that focused on my particular business needs and was a great way to make new contacts and discover trends in supply chain tools and technologies. I would definitely attend another SCOPE Event!"

Partner, Chief Supply Chain Officer, Dealer Tire LLC

"The show was very well managed and run. The 20 minute meeting format was good, on average it was a great use of my time and I was able to connect with suppliers that were overall a good fit.
