Supply Chains in South Africa are currently under strain and being tested like never before.
SAPICS’s role in facilitating knowledge and resource sharing and in disseminating information and education to supply chain professionals has been absolutely vital during the COVID-19 crisis. It will be needed even more now following this latest disruption to the supply chains in South Africa.

At the 43rd Annual conference taking place from the 24th – 26th August, many of the topics and presentations will address the issues facing South Africa and the African continent in these challenging times. 

Themes that will be covered include:
Risk and Resilience
Digital Transformation
Circular Economy

Refine, Rebuild, Reconnect
Once upon a time, someone in education coined the 3Rs, which stood for reading, writing and arithmetic. The annual SAPICS Conference offers unrivalled learning, skills development and knowledge sharing opportunities, so SAPICS decided to build on this theme for the 2021 SAPICS Conference; but the 3Rs that will take centre stage in the supply chain context at SAPICS 2021 are Refine, Rebuild and Reconnect.

Supply Chains around the world have been challenged exponentially. Some need to be completely re-built. Others survived better; but the wise and determined will know that supply chains keep needing to be refined. 

By reconnecting at SAPICS 2021, supply chain professionals from South Africa and around the world can share knowledge and experience to learn from each other and to ensure that global supply chains are perpetually resilient and able to keep the world turning.
