Location: Evoluon

ESCF celebrates its 25th anniversary!

We invite you, as appraised partners, to celebrate this with us on September 30th from 12:30 till 20:00 hours during our annual conference.
The topic of this conference is Future-Proof Supply Chains. So much has happened since the founders Hau Lee and Ton de Kok started the European Supply Chain Forum in 1996.

During the conference we will take time to reflect on our past events and experiences. From there, we will move forward to Future-Proof Supply Chains. What are, in the next five to ten years, the next steps within supply chains? What developments will affect the current supply chains, and in what way?

For the first time in a long while, we will be able to meet each other in person. Also the whole community of ESCF is invited, don’t miss the opportunity to meet members of all four communities. COVID-19 guidelines of RIVM and the Government of the Netherlands will be followed and we are able to stay 1.5 metres apart.
