Reverse Logistics Professional are coming to your neighborhood soon! For years one of the challenges that Reverse Logistics Association has faced was how we get our subject matter to the masses while staying within our budget. With several trials and a recent struggle we have found a format that allows Reverse Logistics Association to fulfill another mission objective, bringing our membership of Reverse Logistics professionals to your back door.
Starting in September of this year RLA is teaming up with REED Expositions where they have Supply Chain, Logistics, Warehousing and Manufacturing events. There will be a Reverse Logistics Pavilion highlighted and hosted by RLA. Along with our normal Conference sessions, OEM and Retailer speakers will bring their knowledge of RL.
Some might say, well this is no big deal, it’s no different than someone having a RL session anywhere. But it’s much, much more than that. Now RLA will bring their knowledge of Reverse Logistics speakers, consultants and third party service providers to a location near you, while at the same time co-mingling with senior management from the Supply Chain.
“What is the change? Imagine professionals from Supply Chain, Logistics, Material Handling, Software and Systems Manufacturers, Warehousing, Consultants, Systems Integrators, Third-Party Logistics Providers, Publishers and then add one more ingredient, Reverse Logistics,” says Laurent Noel Vice President of REED Expositions.
“We felt consolidating the different events into one major conference was the answer. What’s this mean for RLA?” said Gailen Vick the Executive Director of RLA, “We will be able to financially bring our venues to every location, globally from Delhi to Sao Paulo and Eastern Europe to France; yes 8 to 10 shows per year. I will be able to do this because of the infrastructure that REED has and the knowledge that we have on the topic of Reverse Logistics”. Mr. Noel realized early on that in order to do justice on the subject of Reverse Logistics there had to be a group with the knowledge of reverse logistics professionals around the globe. “That’s why we have lined with RLA, they know who the Reverse Logistics professionals are and they’ve been doing it for over 12 years.”
