IBEX to Host Supply Chain Webinar


As the industry continues to struggle with supply-chain issues amid unprecedented customer demand, the International BoatBuilders’ Exhibition and Conference will host a webinar April 29 on the issues manufacturers are facing.

The seminar, “Supply Chain Opportunities and Challenges — A Discussion Exploring Supply Chain Management in a Global, Post-Pandemic Context,” will address not only the myriad issues that have impacted the worldwide supply chain, but also policy, trade war implications, best practices, and management debates and solutions.

The 1 p.m. (ET) discussion will be moderated by Scott Barry, director of engineering standards with the National Marine Manufacturers Association.

The guest speaker is Dr. Andrea Sordi, clinical professor of supply-chain management at University of Tennessee’s Haslam College of Business.
