ISM Supply Chain Conferences and Events

Networking, Education and Inspiration

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.

Reflecting on ISM World 2023: Uniting Supply Chain Excellence

From May 7 to 10, 2023, Grapevine, Texas, played host to the ISM World Conference, the preeminent gathering of supply chain and procurement professionals. This annual event attracted a diverse spectrum of attendees, spanning supply chain students to seasoned global executives.

A highlight of the conference was an exclusive conversation between ISM's Chief Executive Officer, Thomas Derry, and George W. Bush, the 43rd President of the United States. President Bush shared insights into his tenure in the White House, delving into the challenges confronting the nation in the 21st century, global issues, and effective leadership during times of crisis.

In a new addition for 2023, the ISM Inaugural Awards Gala took center stage, spotlighting the outstanding achievements within the supply chain industry. The gala celebrated the best and the brightest, recognizing excellence that continues to drive innovation and progress.

Closing the conference on an inspirational note was Alison Levine, a trailblazing mountaineer who made history as the team captain of the first American Women's Everest Expedition in 2022. Levine shared invaluable lessons learned from her experiences, offering a powerful conclusion to ISM World 2023.
