The World’s Most Important Gathering of CSCOs and Supply Chain Executives™

Get the latest supply chain insights, act first and take the lead

Turn your vision into action at Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo™ 2020, where chief supply chain officers (CSCOs) and their leadership teams gain a strategic view of the trends disrupting their business. Through collaboration with Gartner experts, thought leaders, industry peers and solution providers, you’ll explore new ways to approach your most critical challenges and achieve greater impact as a leader. What does the transition to Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo mean to you? We’re intensifying the focus on the CSCO in three ways:

  • Mission-critical priorities: The entire conference is built around the mission-critical priorities of CSCOs and their teams. 
  • Leadership: We’re turning up the intensity on individual leadership as the key to creating a dynamic, innovative organization and culture. 
  • Executive peer learning: We’re bringing CSCOs and their leadership teams together to share best practices, embrace new perspectives and expand their personal networks.
