Bolloré Logistics South Africa is proud to have been, once again, a silver sponsor at the 39th annual SAPICS 2017 conference. The event took place at the Century City Conference Centre in Cape Town, South Africa, from June 4-7, 2017, with an attendance of over 700 industry professionals.
The leading event in South Africa for Supply Chain and Operations Management Professionals, the Annual SAPICS Conference and Exhibition is the first educational and networking event in South Africa for Supply Chain and Operations Management Professionals. The conference is designed to offer practical and relevant information by providing delegates with excellent educational presentations, case studies and interactive workshops.
Bolloré Logistics South Africa took this opportunity to showcase their supply chain and logistics capabilities as well as digitization initiatives. Brand opportunities provided by the sponsorship included a well-placed exhibition stand which drew crowds with a 3D hologram truck that demonstrated new tech, and played Bolloré Logistics' corporate videos in 3D on the back of the truck.
Regional Commercial Director for South and East Africa Hervé Perron said, "This event provided Bolloré Logistics South Africa with a unique opportunity to interact with decision makers on all levels from prospective clients who we would not usually have easy access to. This included PEP and Cotton On (retail), USABCO, Protea Chemicals, Indigo Brands, Freddy Hirsch, SABIC, PPC and Distell, to name a few".
The conference attendees had the opportunity to attend various workshops, presentations and site visits with the general theme of "Business Unusual" as the topic of discussion with much focus placed on technology and digitization. Bolloré Logistics South Africa used this as a key focus during their tech talk, presented by Hervé Perron, on Tuesday 6th June.
We look forward to capitalising on the knowledge imparted and reporting on sales successes from the networking conducted at the event.
