Chicago, IL. March 9, 2015 – APICS, the premier professional association for supply chain and operations management, has announced its full agenda of conferences, seminars, workshops and training sessions for 2015. The APICS global event series incorporates several regional events around the world, including conferences in Chicago, Shanghai and Dubai, as well as the flagship conference, APICS 2015 in Las Vegas.

“APICS is focused on two key challenges in supply chain today: developing supply chain talent and improving supply chain performance. One of the most effective ways we address both of these issues is through face-to-face education for our members,” said Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE, APICS Chief Executive Officer. “Our annual conference, APICS 2015, and regional conferences in Shanghai, Chicago and Dubai are must-attend events for supply chain professionals, delivering relevant education, leading practices, and valuable networking opportunities.
