Your Opportunity To Inspire, Lead and Grow

April 28 - May 1, 2019
Greater Columbus Convention Center
Columbus, Ohio

Why present at WERC 2019?

Every year, conference attendees tell us the most valuable part of their experience is hearing from colleagues who are succeeding with the real-world, daily challenges facing the warehousing and logistics industry.

As a result, WERC is committed to a powerful, peer-driven education program in 2019. Last year, proposals like yours made up 60% of the conference program, and we’re looking to drive that number even higher in 2019.

Who We’re Looking For

We are looking for innovators, administrators and leaders who are solving problems, breaking new ground and creating new best practices. You’ve got a shot at presenting whether you’re a rookie or a veteran, a start-up or an established brand, a big name or an up-and-comer.

This is your opportunity to inspire excellence in the industry, simply by sharing what you know. We want to hear from you!

What We’re Looking For in 2019

Your colleagues come to WERC to get new ideas they can apply to their work as soon as they get home. Consider using case studies to highlight successes, or to tell cautionary tales. Sessions that present practical tools, skills, strategies and techniques are encouraged. Here are the topic areas we’re interested in for 2019:

  • Healthcare and pharmaceuticals
  • Software and IT
  • Manufacturing
  • Material Handling
  • Metrics and Key Performance Indicators
  • Outsourcing
  • People
  • Processes
  • Real Estate and Facilities
  • Retail or Wholesale
  • Reverse Logistics
  • Strategies
  • Transportation
  • Women @ WERC

Benefits of Presenting

In addition to inspiring excellence and raising your profile among your peers, you’ll receive between $150 and $250 off your conference registration fees if your proposal is selected for presentation.

Submission Deadline is Sept. 12, 2018

We’ll review the presentation proposals we receive, and the very best will be given a slot at the conference. For more details and to submit a proposal, please visit the WERC Conference Proposal Submission Portal.
