Last chance for Smart early bird discounts!

Register now – Smart Conference and Expo, Australia's leading supply chain event, is on again next month.


Smart Conference and Expo 2011 will be held on 25 and 26 May at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre at Darling Harbour. Register by 11 April and you will receive a special Early Bird discount.


Smart 2011 is proudly hosted by LAA and apics, together with supporting industry groups including CIPSA, CILTA and SCLAA.


Delegates working in supply chain and logistics report back that Smart is a must-attend event when it is held every two years. This year's Smart Conference will provide attendees with personal and professional tools that are vital in the current business climate, as it focuses on the theme The Road Ahead: Supply Chain Models for the Future.


LAA President Mike Owen says the reason Smart Conference and Expo is a leading supply chain event is because it contains everything in one spot.


"Not only do you get a chance to hear from industry-leading speakers, but delegates receive the latest industry-based research and information, can network with other practitioners, and can explore the vast array of the latest products and services at the Expo adjacent to the conference."


Book today – it's your last chance to receive the special Early Bird discount – only available until April 11. Register at
