Two virtual conferences to connect a global community and share best practices on how to build resiliency and agility into integrated business and supply chain planning

OTTAWA, May 29, 2020 /CNW/ - Kinaxis® Inc. (TSX: KXS), the authority in driving agility for fast, confident decision-making in an unpredictable world, is kicking off its first Kinaxis Live (#KinaxisLive) virtual events on June 9 in North America and EMEA and on June 11 in APAC. Driven by the theme of "Planning for the New Normal," Kinaxis Live will focus on the future of the supply chain and how to build resiliency and agility by leveraging AI, human intelligence and concurrent planning.

"Supply chains are facing unprecedented volatility. They are also being presented with an opportunity," said John Sicard, CEO, Kinaxis. "As companies are starting to adapt and transition to the new way of working, it has never been more important to look at your supply chain and take the steps needed to lay the right foundation for the future. When CEOs are asked what they will be doing to prepare for the next disruption, the supply chain will be at the top of the list."

Across the two events, Kinaxis will bring together its global community to hear from Kinaxis thought leaders and supply chain innovators from Merck, Flex, ON Semiconductor, Lippert Components and Konica Minolta as they discuss lessons they've learned from managing through disruption and share insights and strategies on how best to prepare for the new normal in supply chain planning.

Continued Sicard, "It is amazing to see the Kinaxis ecosystem come together in these uncertain times to provide insight into what they have learned and share best practices that will help everyone navigate the future successfully."
