Tuesday's ISM2016 Sweet Tweets
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. Shipman Gold Medal Award is presented, and Fiore, a former senior vice president of supply management and CPO for ThyssenKrupp NA, is this year's recipient of the profession's highest honor.

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.
