SHANGHAI, Aug.9, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- With the support of Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and China Logistics Association (CLA), Global Leaders Institute is hosting Retail Supply Chain Management Summit 2011 in Shanghai, China on December 6 & 7, 2011. This two-day event is designed to provide retail executives and supply chain leaders the insights, tools and connections they need to master the new realities of the supply chain.

As the global economy is finally gaining ground, businesses are poised to seize opportunities. Leading retailers have realized that the real competition is not company against company but rather supply chain against supply chain. With supply base globalization on the one hand and channel diversification on the other, supply chains are more complex than ever. This is putting new pressures on supply chain executives to run a more resilient supply network.

China is on its way to become the world's second largest consumer market after the United States. In China's recently approved 12th Five Year Plan (2011-2015), the government is putting high priority on boosting domestic consumption. To ride the next growth wave, it is imperative for retailers to understand the increasingly sophisticated Chinese consumer.

Against this backdrop, Retail SCM Summit 2011 will engage CEOs of best-in-class retailers, supply chain leaders, industry experts and solution providers to collaboratively address the supply chain challenges retailers face today. Retail is not a silo anymore where enterprises and departments work in isolation. Supply chain collaboration across organizational and functional boundaries becomes vital to market success. Join us at the event to:

  • Achieve insights into winning supply chain strategies
  • Get ahead of the curve on emerging issues and latest enablers
  • Interact with your peers and build important professional relationships
  • Learn best practices that are saving companies time and money
  • Explore the nuances of China's consumer market at this all-in-one conference
