    2021 OTM User Conference Americas

    Dear OTM SIG Community,

    On behalf of the OTM SIG Board and 2021 Conference Planning Committee, we are excited for you to join us for the Virtual OTM SIG Conference. As you know, the conference is scheduled to run in a fully virtual format August 2-5. This year we will be using the Hubilo conference platform to bring you a more enriched conference experience.

    Our organization continues to face a time of many changes due to the pandemic and it’s after-effects, locally and globally. But the world of Supply Chain remains an exciting area providing vital support to the economy. We'll continue to meet and bring inspired people together in forums like this, to ensure our organization continues to deliver the value that it is intended to do.

    We have some exciting topics lined up for the week of August 2, with three sessions each day through August 5. Nothing replaces in-person experience, but I ask each of you to stay engaged throughout this conference by leveraging our conference platform. Please make sure to visit the event page on the OTM SIG website to familiarize yourself with session topics and speakers.

    A special thank you to all the speakers and partners for their continued support.
