the event

The Supply Chain Evolve Forum will explore the emerging future-focused developments in supply chain management at a high strategic level, where we will bring together a group of over 150 senior Supply Chain Leaders from across the country, represented via a diverse range of industries.

Taking place on the 24th August, 2023 at at the Crown Conference Centre, Melbourne, this year’s theme will be focused around “The evolving supply chain: balancing resilience, sustainability, and the human element.”

Over the past two years, Australia, as a nation, has been forced to become acutely aware of how important supply chains are to our way of life.  It has brought home the essential role of the freight and logistics industry.  New sets of principles and policies to face the challenges and disruption are being developed globally and are now critical considerations across government and industry in Australia.  For the upcoming forum in 2023 we have constructed a program that covers off the six major areas of importance for the Supply Chain Leader of today.  These include leadership and strategy; innovation; the digital supply chain; logistics and customer fulfillment; supply chain planning and sustainability.

Our advisory council and organising committee are made up of some of the regions most respected Supply Chain Leaders who have helped formulate the content and overall program direction in 2023, allowing attendees to be educated and presented to by over 30 local and international front line executives that compress years of meaningful experience into a systematic well organised learning program.

Attendees will have the opportunity to personalise their own agenda and maximise their time out of the office by selecting the sessions that are most relevant to them and their business over the day. Our networking drinks function will provide the chance to interact face to face with peers in a very relaxed setting, while the Supply Chain Marketplace will allow attendees to explore a range of products and services on offer across the industry that can assist their business in evolving.

Whilst we are all adjusting to the ‘new norm’ and adapting to the challenges and opportunities that COVID-19 brought for us all, we are committed to deliver a great event in a well-managed and safe environment.

We have introduced new event protocols to safeguard the health and wellbeing of all our sponsors, attendees and staff whilst continuing to deliver strong opportunities and engagements.
