ICYMI: Blueprint 2024 RecapBe Supply Chain Invincible


BLUEPRINT 2024, Blue Ridge’s user conference, took place in Atlanta in April and was nothing short of amazing! The Omni Hotel at the Battery Atlanta overlooking the Atlanta Braves Stadium set the scene for a fantastic three days filled with industry leaders, innovators, and supply chain planning experts. In case you missed it (ICYMI), here is a recap of the event. 

From inspiring key notes featuring our CEO, Kyle Pexton, and Chris and Nic Nikic to insightful breakout sessions led by Blue Ridge experts, partners, and customers, BLUEPRINT 2024 offered a wealth of knowledge and cutting-edge strategies to navigate the ever-evolving landscape of supply chain planning. 

BLUEPRINT 2024 attendees were also able to participate in interactive sessions including: 

  • MEIO: Right Product, Right Place, Right Time 
  • Integrated Business Planning (IBP): The Why, When & How 
  • Maximize Profitability with Order Cycle Optimization (OCO) Management 
  • and so much more! 

One of the highlights from our time in Atlanta was the deep dive into the 2023 State of the Industry Report. During an interactive presentation featuring real-time interactive polling, attendees gained a comprehensive understanding of industry trends, challenges, and opportunities, empowering them to make informed decisions and stay ahead of the curve. Results from the session uncovered that the top three forecasting and inventory challenges organizations face include complex patterns in customer demand, increased volatility of demand, and long lead times. 

Maria White-Dumas, Purchasing Director of United Distributors, and a seasoned attendee of BLUEPRINT conferences since 2008, told us she appreciates that BLUEPRINT enables her to learn and encourages forging meaningful connections with industry peers. Additionally, Adam Kasper, Purchasing Director of Badger Liquor, said that one of the benefits of attending BLUEPRINT is the ability to network with other companies also using the Blue Ridge supply chain planning software. 

BLUEPRINT remains the premier event for supply chain planning professionals! Thank you to our wonderful attendees, customers, partners, and sponsors for making BLUEPRINT 2024 a resounding success! We look forward to seeing you at the next one. Together, let’s Be Supply Chain Invincible!
