Valuable Experience

The CAPS Supply Management Roundtable is:

  • Less reliant on PowerPoint, depending heavily on extracting wisdom from numbers, intellectual capital, and open peer-to-peer dialogue.
  • Specifically focused on the challenges you’re facing and topics that bring you value.
  • Highly strategic, focused on strategic supply management, and emphasizing alignment to business goals.
  • Great networking with other professionals from global companies, many whom share the same challenges and opportunities as you.
  • True member value, where benchmarking and research come to life in an environment that is sales-free and consultant free 

Hotel and Location

Andaz Scottsdale Resort and Spa was named by Condé Nast as the No. 3 resort in the Southwest. Put your feet up in your Mid-Century Modern bungalow or lounge by one of the three resort pools overlooking Camelback Mountain. 

Things to do

Though the modern conference spaces are airy, and bright, long days of intensive thought, inspiring information, and engaging conversation may leave you craving rest and relaxation. 

If you are planning for an extended stay, take advantage of the perfect weather in Scottsdale and hike Camelback Mountain, enjoy world-renowned golf courses (with help from our onsite concierge), or tour Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West.

CAPS Research inspires leaders with profound discovery and executable strategies to shape the future of supply management. We are a non-profit organization sponsored by Fortune 500 member companies, Institute for Supply Management®, and the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University.
