The 12th edition of GPCA Supply Chain Conference will be held under the theme ‘Supply Chain 4.0: Maximizing Performance through Technology’ and will take place from 13-15 April 2020 at the InterContinental Dubai Festival City, UAE.

This year’s conference will focus on the pre-requisites for successfully integrating technology to develop an agile and robust supply chain. It will showcase the impact of disruptive technologies on chemical supply chains through a series of expert presentations, interactive masterclasses, keynote sessions and dedicated audience engagement activities connecting leaders from the industry, technology experts, consultants, academia, regulators and logistics service providers to share their knowledge.


The application of a new set of technologies collectively referred to as Supply Chain 4.0 has brought certain challenges and opportunities for the chemical industry and this will require companies to rethink and re-align their strategies to design their supply chains. Considering this, the focus of supply chain management is moving from the traditional procure, produce and deliver model to improving performance and targeting customer experience by means of a resilient digitalized supply chain

The need to adapt to change is becoming extremely important for industry leaders to prepare their workforce for an inevitable paradigm shift. It is also becoming imperative to focus on developing sustainable supply chains to seize value creation opportunities and offer significant competitive advantage for businesses.
