The 2020 edition of Supply Chain Event, which was scheduled for 17 and 18 November 2020 in Paris, had to be cancelled due to the deterioration of the situation around Covid-19 and the return of the state of health emergency.
However, a digital version will be held on 8 and 9 December 2020 based on three pillars: conferences and workshops in webinar format, the possibility of videoconferencing for meetings, and a hybrid version of the Digital Supply Chain Awards.
Unfortunately, the decrees of 16 October and the Prefectorial Order of 17 October concerning Paris unfortunately overshadowed the 2020 edition of Supply Chain Event, which was scheduled for 17 and 18 November 2020 in Paris, Porte de Versailles.
"In this context, the decision has been taken to cancel this 2020 edition and we sincerely regret it because SCE was ready to welcome exhibitors and visitors who strongly supported this 9th edition", indicated Reed Expositions France. The exhibition organiser therefore had to make up its mind to cancel SCE 2020, given the deterioration of the situation around Covid-19 and the return of the state of health emergency.
A digital version on 8 and 9 December
The cancellation of the exhibition (the dates of the next edition in 2021 will be communicated later) will be accompanied by the launch of a digital version already prefigured in the SCE Live round table on 22 September. "We are already mobilised with the team to work on the Digital SCE format, details of which will be communicated in the coming days.
Digital SCE will be held on 8 and 9 December 2020 around three pillars: our conferences and workshops in webinar format, our collaborative tool for connecting with the possibility of making appointments by videoconference, not forgetting a hybrid version of the Digital Supply Chain Awards, confirming our desire to perpetuate a moment of effective networking.
I would like to thank all our exhibitors and visitors who have supported us right up to the end and I am sure that they will be present on this digital format which will largely meet their expectations", said Thomas Desplanques, Director of the Supply Chain Event and SITL.
The Supply Chain Event News Guide maintained
Supply Chain Magazine, co-organiser of the exhibition for the conference part, joins in these thanks, with a special mention to all the speakers who have made themselves available over the last few months to build a quality programme. In any case, this will not remain a dead letter, either via Digital SCE or via future articles in our columns.
As far as the exhibitors at the show are concerned, we would also like to remind you that the Supply Chain Event News Guide (nearly 70 exhibitor sheets, with contacts) planned for the November issue of Supply Chain Magazine is being maintained. In view of the rise of teleworking, the digital version of this issue will also be accessible in clear text to all newsletter subscribers.
