Re-Globalization: Strategies and Tactics to Cope with the Changing Supply Chain Landscape



Event date/time: October 10, 2023 from 11:30pm – 2:00pm 

UW Fluno Center Skyview Room, 601 University Ave, Madison, WI (this is an In-person only event).

Join MITA on October 10th to learn the latest on global supply chain issues still facing companies worldwide. 

The world is not as flat as it once was. Strategies companies undertook years ago to move operations and supplier programs to China are being re-examined, and replaced with nearshoring, China+1, and similar strategies to diversify where products are coming from. How did we get here, and what is really moving to new points of origin?
