Conference Summary

EuroEvents is pleased to invite you to the 2nd Annual S&OP Excellence Forum: Supply Chain, Demand & forecasting Refined, which will take place in Berlin, Germany in the period of 10-11 September 2019!

In recent years, Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) has been experiencing its renaissance, which has been invoked by its growing importance due to a number of technological advances.

There are numerous benefits that can be attributed to S&OP in relation to growth strategies, such as increased forecast accuracy; better optimization of resources; reduced inventories; improved lead times; better collaboration between departments and many more. However, despite the growing recognition of its importance, it is imperative to note that majority of businesses still lack a contemporary, well-designed and well-functioning S&OP process.

Join us this September in Berlin for the S&OP2019 to find out how to build an intelligent and efficient S&OP process and improve your forecasting performance by making efficient and effective use of technological advancements thus mitigating risks and improving the overall optimization and performance of your business.

Join us today and learn how to design the supply chain planning process in order to support business objectives; how to transition from a traditional organization to a demand-driven adaptive enterprise and learn whether or not Enterprise Business Planning (EBP) is the next logical step.

Furthermore, don’t miss the opportunity for successful networking with the industry pioneers and use this opportunity to formulate new strategies and business models in order to stay ahead of the competition.

Come to Berlin for a remarkable and exclusive experience!
