As a U.S. hotspot for logistics and a natural junction for key industry players, Columbus will be host to LogisticsConnect, a forum for critical dialogue and industry networking on May 12. The full-day event stages converging angles on current trends and the future of logistics with speakers like Bill LaFayette, founder of Regionomics and former vice president of economic analysis at the Columbus Chamber, and Brian Devine of ProLogistix, a EmployBridge business and leading provider of logistics talent in the U.S.
“This event brings together leaders from all groups of the logistics sector as well as from finance and government for vital conversations,” says Emmett Kelly, attorney with Frost Brown Todd in Columbus. “Existing and quickly emerging technologies are changing every aspect of the logistics industry, from workforce issues to the organization of commerce. LogisticsConnect provides an opportunity to hear from influential leaders on issues that are important for the success of all players in the industry.”
The forum, free to those interested in diving deeper into the world of logistics, will deliver national and state economic updates and agenda topics ranging from the growing role of drones in the industry, to the rise of the on-demand economy and its impact on retail fulfillment.
