We are gearing up for the most important conference you will attend in September 2021, PARCEL Forum ‘21! This pandemic has brought a complete transformation to how we think about logistics.
Our world became even bigger throughout the pandemic and gave us a lot more to think about moving forward. We hope that this conference can not only reconnect you to one another but also provide you with helpful tips and tricks for the new reality of supply chain logistics.
In this article, you will find our recommendations on how you can prepare for this conference and some of our top places to check out!
From September 14-16, 2021, you will want to find yourself at the Gaylord National Resort in Washington, DC. We have a packed schedule for you to network with the speakers, colleagues and many others. You can find the detailed schedule here.
PARCEL Forum is launching a new learning format this year called Educational Learning Pods. These pods are designed just for you and the area you are working in. You can travel around with your pod or create your own schedule from choosing from the 45 sessions we have available over the three days. There is so much learning to be done! All you have to do is pick how you want to learn. Click here to see the different pod offerings for this year.
