SCMAP’s kick-off event for 2018, Supply Chain Outlook, will be held on 26 January 2018, from 12nn to 4pm, at the Garden Ballroom of the EDSA Shangri-la Manila in Mandaluyong City.

The event is now open for sponsorship. Sponsors to the event get to display a banner near the registration area, and also distribute pamphlets to delegates. They will be acknowledged as a sponsor in event publicity material as well as during the event. Finally, the sponsor can send two delegates to the event for free. Sponsorship fee is at PHP 50,000 inclusive of VAT.

The event is expected to attract corporate-level delegates from the manufacturing, retailing and logistics industries, as well as other supply chain stakeholders. It also serves as the first General Membership Meeting of 2018.
