“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” — Charles Darwin

 

Well said, Mr. Darwin. As the world changes around us, so must the supply chain. That’s why we invite RapidResponse users to join us from October 14-17, 2018 for Kinexions ’18 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, MD.

 

With a focus on supply chain digitization, transformation and revolution, Kinexions promises to be the premier event for the RapidResponse user community, including customers, partners and prospects.

 

“More” awaits attendees at Kinexions ‘18

Each year, attendees join other Kinaxis customers from around the world to engage in two full days of networking, motivational keynotes, informative general sessions and compelling breakouts delivered by customers, product experts and partners. At the heart of the sessions will be how conference-goers can get more from their supply chain, more from their RapidResponse investment and more from their overall Kinexions experience.

 

Inspiring keynote speakers
