The #ISM2016 hashtag continued getting liberal use during the second full day of ISM's Annual Conference in Indianapolis. Here's a sampling of the experiences that presenters, exhibitors and attendees shared on Twitter.
On Tuesday, the supply management world was Tim Fiore's; everyone else was just conferencing in it. That's the case when the J.

The Shipman Award wasn't the only hardware distributed on Tuesday; the 30 Under 30 Rising Supply Chain Stars and R. Gene Richter Scholarship Award winners were spotlighted.
