ECIA 2022 Executive Conference Supply Chain Speaker Highlighted  

ECIA is pleased to announce Lynn Torrel will present ‘Building Resilient Supply Chains’ at the 2022 Executive Conference to take place October 23-25 at the Loews Chicago O’Hare. The past 2+ years have been a perfect storm for supply chains that began before the pandemic with trade and tariff wars. Current supply chains were built around low costs and efficiencies, with OEMs operating with significant flexibility by all parties in the ecosystem. This system works well in stable, near-ideal scenarios. Unfortunately, over the past few years, we've learned that such business processes and agreements drastically reduce resiliency during significant supply disruptions. With less-than-ideal conditions, the modern supply chain quickly breaks down.
