ISM Conferences and Events

ISM conferences and events are designed to be experiences. It’s not business card passing, sit and listen to breakouts and boring cocktail parties. ISM events are immersive and engaging, where you leave with learning new perspectives and best practices, solve for current challenges, gain new personal and professional connections and bonus… get a bit of inspiration to take back into the office.

Events range from our annual conference with thousands of peers, thought leaders and solutions providers to more intimate, topic or industry-based events bringing like-minded individuals together.  Attendees have found ISM conferences and events to be focused time for their continuous learning and professional development.

Here’s Just Some of What Our Attendees Are Saying…

Being a part of ISM means keeping relevant on our function which is changing every day.

By attending the ISM conference, I’m taking away the ability to meet new people, find out where they came from, what they are doing, what their background is, but also see what’s coming up.

I learn the latest trends. What should I do? It’s a lot of help peer-to-peer.

The challenge is there are so many things happening at the same time, where do you go? When I come here (ISM Annual Conference), I meet 20, 30, 50 CPOs in 2-3 days and we learn from each other.

The “New Normal” Doesn’t Have to Be Flat and Impersonal

Conferences and events are entering an evolutionary period. If you can’t travel or attend a larger in-person event, ISM is developing a solution. Our team along with the help of professional peers, like you, are developing new virtual event experiences that creatively provide some of the benefits we all enjoy at in-person gatherings… with the added bonus of access to information only this format provides. Join our events update list below to be the first to learn about these upcoming offerings.

A Look Back – ISM2019

ISM2019 took place in Houston, TX in April 2019. Not even tornadoes could keep more than 2,000 supply chain and procurement professionals, thought leaders and suppliers from joining together to “Spark” ideas and solutions at this three-day event. Highlights included keynote speakers Carly Fiorina and Dr. Janet L. Yellen and the introduction of a new Innovation Hall to hear about new solutions for the profession.
