This program continues our tradition of a fun, educational and interactive quiz competition combined with networking. Mixed teams of attendees will attempt to answer a variety of Supply Chain questions, learn the correct answers, and understand why those answers are the right ones.  Questions will be drawn from all aspects of the Supply Chain including Sourcing, Transportation, Logistics and Production.  The two teams finishing with the most points will be awarded prizes.  As always, this will be an evening of both fun and learning.
