EDGE 2021 will be a hybrid event hosted virtually with a limited agenda and in-person with a full agenda at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia September 19-22, 2021.
Accepted session topics must align with one or more of the core tracks. By submitting your session topic/idea, you agree to present in-person. All core tracks (listed below) will be presented in-person only. All session submissions are reviewed and evaluated by the EDGE Conference Committee and then passed to the 2021 Class of Track Chairs for consideration. No submission is ever guaranteed.
The session submitter must be a CSCMP member for the topic to be considered.
There is no cost to participate in the Call for Sessions.
All intended presenters must be confirmed and listed in the submission.
Sales pitches or selling of one’s company or services will not be considered.
Submissions are required to be educational and application-based (case studies, data, and research/white papers) to offer the most value to our attendees.
Service providers, consultants and/or academics may not present alone. At least one customer (retailer/manufacturer/shipper) must actively participate in the session.
Companies may not present more than once across tracks and can only present once within a given track.
Third party submissions via sales/marketing agencies are not accepted. Please read below for submission instructions, requirements, the abstract evaluation process, session categories, and timeline.
If your session is selected, each presenter must register to attend the conference. ($900 discount is provided to all approved speakers).
Presenting at EDGE is an opportunity to educate and engage an audience of nearly 3,000 supply chain professionals from over 30 countries and industries. Each year, our attendee base is comprised of 60-70% decision makers and 30-40% are new to EDGE.
Each submission is reviewed and evaluated by the EDGE Conference Committee. Committee members are looking for sessions that address current issues and trends with relevant data, experience, and application in addition to customers who can support the objective. Sessions that meet all criteria are more likely to be selected.
Sessions that are not selected for EDGE 2021 will be considered for other opportunities such as CSCMP’s global roundtables.
