RLA Conference/Expo and Seminar Speaker Information
In order to fill a busy conference schedule at our events around the world, we are constantly seeking Reverse Logistics professionals from companies involved in manufacturing, retail, or brand marketing, and academic institutions, to serve as speakers and panelists. We are also interested in consultants with a thorough knowledge of Reverse Logistics to serve as panel discussion moderators. The areas of focus for our speakers and panel discussions include, but are not limited to the following:
Aftermarket Supply Chain, IT Solutions for Reverse Logistics, Wireless Communications, Online Auctions & Marketplaces, Environmental and Regulatory Requirements, Warranty Returns and Repairs, Outsourcing RL Services, Repair Technologies, e-Waste/Recycling, and many more!
Many successful past conference presentations and panel discussions have focused on case studies involving a manufacturer or retailer and the service solution which was provided by a third party service provider. These presentations typically follow a Problem to Solution format and detail the problem faced by the company and the way it was solved. Following is a good example from a recent conference - "Recessionary Impact on the Reverse Supply Chain and Some Best Practice Considerations" - Target, Dell, HP, Genco ATC
