Companies can submit multiple case studies. There is no cost to participate in the competition. You don't have to be a CSCMP member nor a U.S. national to submit.

Finalists compete for the Supply Chain Innovation Award and are recognized in the CSCMP conference literature (pre-conference press release, onsite guide, and post-conference press release), and are featured in a special end of year SupplyChainBrain issue and video interviews.

The case studies (not presentations) are uploaded to the CSCMP website after conference, and the finalist teams may be invited to author an issue of CSCMP Explores... or CSCMP Hot Topics after the conference.

Finalist teams are provided two complimentary conference registrations for the entire conference (does not include travel or accommodations).
