Client Focus Group Meetings

For over 15 years, CTSI-Global's Annual Client Focus Group has become an important thought leadership forum where we join clients, carriers and other industry experts to review emerging industry trends. During this forum, attendees chart the tactics and technologies that will aid them in making their supply chain operations even more efficient.

Focus on the Future of your Supply Chain

Our 13th Annual Client Focus Group meeting was held May 21-22, 2008, at the historic Peabody Hotel, a block from legendary Beale Street. Discussion themes included insight on today's top supply chain trends while looking ahead to explore future developments and megatrends. Participants had opportunities to interact with other clients and industry experts to discuss supply chain best practices and how companies should adapt to future change within the industry.
