Why should you request an invitation to NLDC 2014?

NLDC 2013 Executive Attendees answer that question best…

“This was time well spent (and I do not get to say that about many conferences). Well done.”

“The most useful information and networking opportunity in a 1 1/2 day conference you can find.”

“This was a great conference as it was small enough to have great conversation with new contacts regarding supply chain and big enough to attract outstanding speakers. One of the better conferences I have attended in recent years.”

“This may have been the best NLDC ever. The networking just gets better and better… quality, quality, quality!”
