Demand grows for Quinlan's supply chain insights
More than 400 logistics-minded professionals gathered at the Sofitel Chicago Water Tower on October 30 for the Third Annual Chicago Supply Chain Summit hosted by Loyola’s Quinlan School of Business. Attendance rose sharply from last year, attracting more than twice as many attendees, representing 120 organizations in all—from Baxter to McDonald’s.
“Our clients gave accolades to the organization of the event and enjoyed the content very much as well,” says John Caltagirone, director of Quinlan’s Supply and Value Chain Center.
Panelists at this premiere event tackled issues around sustainability, distribution, and the logistics of public-private collaboration.
The daylong event also featured keynote addresses by some of the biggest names in the industry, including:
Daniel Brutto (BBA ’78), former Quinlan Alum and president of UPS International
Deon van As, vice president of technical and packaging services at MillerCoors
Tim Engstrom, vice president of Walgreens’ supply chain operations
With such a strong turnout, Caltagirone is already lining up speakers and panelists for next year’s summit.
“We received excellent feedback on the evaluations and are already very excited for next year’s event,” he says.
