Source One's Spend Management Experts to Present Session on Nearshoring at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals' Annual Conference
Willow Grove, PA (September 20, 2016) – Next week, Source One’s supply management consultants will join an impressive guest list of supply chain thought leaders and innovators at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals’ (CSCMP) 2016 Conference. The annual event is happening September 25th-28th in beautiful Kissimmee, Florida, bringing together a global community of supply chain influencers and experts for three days of engaging presentations and networking sessions.
This year, Source One’s Latin America sourcing liaison, Diego De la Garza, is a featured conference speaker presenting a session titled Sourcing from Mexico – The Supplier Development Challenge. Sharing his extensive experience helping companies relocate supply management operations from Asian counties to Mexico, De la Garza will discuss the factors influencing the nearshoring trend. In addition, the session will cover how to navigate common supplier identification obstacles and set your nearshoring initiative up for success.
“The global market landscape is changing – creating a major push for companies to move supply chain operations that were once outsourced to Far East Asia closer to home in Mexico and Latin America. Source One continues to challenge the traditional mindset that low-cost country sourcing must mean outsourcing operations to countries like China, Korea, and Vietnam. As leading proponents of sourcing from Mexico, we help clients navigate the cultural obstacles of finding suppliers to form long-lasting partnerships.” explains De la Garza. “With CSCMP 2016 being a conference centered on innovative supply chain solutions, there is no better opportunity for attendees to learn about the benefits nearshoring could offer their organization.”
CSCMP 2016 is an exciting event for De la Garza, who will also be honored as an Emerging Leader during the conference. In addition, the supply management expert will also be a member of the “Fact vs. Fiction – Generational Stereotypes” panel, happening on Monday, September 26th. Attendees interested in learning more about Source One’s Nearshoring services and other supply management solutions are encouraged to stop by booth #118 during the Supply Chain Exchange.
The CSCMP Annual Conference is among a number of events Source One Management Services will attend this season. Earlier this month, Source One attended Synergy 2016 – a flagship annual event hosted by leading group purchasing organization, Corporate United. The event gathered hundreds of procurement professionals from all over the country, providing innovative presentations and networking opportunities showcasing the cost reduction opportunities offered through group purchasing organizations. Source One is also gearing up for speaking sessions next month, including Next Level Purchasing’s Annual Conference taking place in Pittsburgh and ProcureCon Pharma in Philadelphia.
