• SMART Conference is recognised within Australia and internationally as the leading supply chain and logistics event in the Australasian region. Proudly brought to you by:  apicsAU – The Society for Supply Chain Professionals, the event has grown significantly and currently has more than 600 delegates attend the conference & expo.

    SMART conference will be held for the first time outside of Sydney, at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre on 26th & 27th May 2015. It promises to continue the strong tradition of delivering relevant supply chain & logistics practices, strategies and valuable information along with many networking opportunities directly to industry leaders.

    For 2015, we are embarking on change. SMART will be co-locating with National Manufacturing Week, which will have the further benefit of additional leverage to the 11,000 plus attendees.

    We are looking at advancing the conference program to address the rapidly evolving disciplines which are currently affecting the industry. We will be incorporating a new structure for the conference, some of these essential elements include:

    • Peer to peer learning from real world case studies, presented by practitioners for practitioners
    • Academic presentations
    • Thought leadership presentations
    • Site visits
    • Workshops
    • Structured interaction
    • Informal networking
    • Product and service supplier collaboration
