Supply Chain & Industrial Warehouse Summit

3-4 November, 2022 | Sofitel Melbourne, Australia + Virtual

Strategy, Technology and Innovation to Reduce Supply Chain Congestion and Capitalise on the E-commerce Boom

Strategy | Technology | Innovation


When it comes to the current state of the global supply chain, weakness is everywhere. Massive dislocations are present in the container market, shipping routes, ports, air cargo, trucking lines, railways and warehouses. For goods to move seamlessly from overseas factories to Australian addresses, the oceangoing vessels, shipping containers, cargo terminals, truckers and railroads all must work together, like runners in a relay race. If equipment gets stuck at any point, delays ripple along the entire chain.

The Supply Chain and Industrial Warehouse Summit will look at how the pandemic has disrupted global supply chains and accelerated ecommerce sales growth so quickly that immense pressure has been placed on distribution networks and warehouse capacity.

It will explore the major challenges being faced by CPGs and 3PLs facing across the supply chain from shipping, containers, transportation, warehousing and the last mile – and how technology and innovative approaches can help unlock inefficiencies and optimise the movement of goods.

It will also look at the huge opportunities this has created for industrial & logistics property owners and investors as consumer goods and logistics companies scramble to increase their inventories and expand their warehouse space.

Schedule Dates

Conference Schedule

Day 2 | Thursday | 8th September


Panel discussion – Enabling transformation - Designing a win-win workplace experience supporting performance, brand culture and individual authenticity

The employee-centric workplace has become popular with HR and WX. However the concept goes against the usual “management is always right” approach. To work, the model requires technical and cultural transformations. We discuss how this model is creating a revision in our workplace beliefs, and how it will develop future workplaces.

Transforming the workplace into a collaboration and wellbeing hub

People increasingly want to work according to their needs and preferences and companies need to find ways to facilitate that if they’re to get the best out of their employees.

Nathan Andres, Global Wellbeing Leader, People Director APAC, The Body Shop


Panel discussion – Improving employee experience and getting to the heart of employee engagement and hybrid management

Traditional HR focus on treating wellness, productivity, and technology as separate issues. But for employees, these are integrated components, that form the overall employee experience. We consider the role EX plays in supporting hybrid workplaces.

Kate Renner, Head of Employee Experience, Wisr

DIGITAL FUTURES - Sept. 8, 2022

WORKTECH - Innovators in workplace & employee experience technology share views on how to improve the hybrid experience

In a hybrid workplace, your technology stack defines employee experience. One of the big questions many leaders are facing now is: how can we meaningfully communicate, collaborate, and connect in a hybrid (or remote) environment? These new needs are driving the creation of new technology categories to support workers — that go beyond the video call.


Panel discussion – Work labs - Building future ready workplaces which connect business strategy with people, digital and place

Future workplaces will offer experimental spaces that integrate sensing, spatial analytics, and adaptive design to encourage faster learning and testing. They will also support virtual and hybrid workplaces within spaces that empower and encourage employees.

Future workplace transition experience and what's next for the employee centric model?

The hybrid workplace experience is creating new value for employees. But for most businesses this model remains an experiment. Here we learn from a business that has always operated this way. What are the important lessons for workplace transiting?

Brian Elliott, Executive Leader & SVP, Future Forum, Slack, USA

Panel discussion: Future employees risks and opportunities– Predictions from the edge of the future workplace

As the power shifts from employer to employee in the latest round of the “war for talent”, businesses focus on how to engage a young talented digital native workforce. They also wonder what other people risks will flow from the changes in our workplace arrangements as the unintended consequences of workplace disruption. Some ask whether the old ways will return with the open borders and new staff options.
