Today at #ISMWorld2023: Social Media Stars and Loose Ends

May 10, 2023
By Dan Zeiger

The ISM World 2023 Annual Conference concluded on Wednesday, and Inside Supply Management® traditionally turns over part of its coverage to the attendees, session presenters and exhibitors by highlighting some of the best social media posts.

LinkedIn and Twitter accounts were busy during the three days at the Gaylord Texas Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, as participants shared their experiences and insights. Also, seeing the smiles and senses of humor among procurement professionals is always one of the best things about an Institute for Supply Management® event.



Extra Points

  • Maastricht University in the Netherlands has officially established a dynasty in ISM’s International Student Case Competition, announced on Wednesday as the winner for the third consecutive year. A team from the University of Michigan was second, and Wayne State University placed third. “All of those teams represent the future of our profession, and it is energizing to see,” ISM CEO Thomas W. Derry said.
  • Conference attendees assembled 800 hygiene kits and raised US$5,000 for charity partner Clean the World, a nonprofit organization that collects and recycles soap and other hygiene products discarded by the hospitality industry and distributes them to people in need. The hygiene kits will be donated to the Arlington (Texas) Life Shelter.
  • The ISM World 2024 Annual Conference will be held at the MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas on April 29-May 1, Derry announced at Wednesday’s Closing General Session.
