Still Building Solutions for Sustainable Supply Chains

21-21 November 2023

22nd Odette International Automotive Conference for Supply Chain Professionals and Digital Transformation Experts



Still Building Solutions for Sustainable Supply Chains

Supply Chain Management in the automotive industry is attracting more investment than ever and has evolved from a service and support function to a strategic ‘C-suite’ concern. In taking this leading position, supply chain VPs have quickly realised that digitalisation demands standardisation and that collaboration across the industry to develop and implement further digital standards is vital for survival.

Odette has been at the forefront of the development of digital standards for the automotive supply chain for almost 40 years and we look forward to continuing to mobilise the automotive community to overcome the major challenges ahead.

What people say about the Odette Conference

The Odette Conference is a place where you will share knowledge and meet major actors of the digital supply chain. Besides following the conference sessions to keep informed of the industry evolutions, my objectives at Odette2022 were to ensure the transmission of knowledge and expertise by introducing my young colleagues to the people I regularly communicate with and to speak with a customer on a specific project. This was done within minutes of our arrival as my Odette contacts immediately put me in touch with THE person I was looking for.

I recommend the Odette conferences to suppliers who want to anticipate changes and stay informed.

Marie Ammerich, Supply Chain Projects Engineer at L&L Products

It was a pleasure to participate and thank you for giving me the opportunity to introduce Stellantis ambitions and the challenges ahead of us. Odette is a strong partner and the standards created are well taken into account in achieving the convergence of our Group companies.

Michael Gorny, VP Supply Chain Transformation at Stellantis

I really enjoyed the presentations as well as the discussions at the conference.

My congratulations on your excellent organization which was the perfect mix of a highly professional event and a great feel-good get-together of the industry.

Christian Moser, Global Solution Manager e-mobility, DBSchenker
