and Educational Exhibit
San Diego Convention Center
April 25-28, 2010
San Diego, California

Mark your calendar for ISM's 95th Annual Conference. For 94 years ISM has consistently delivered practical essentials for a strong supply management career. Our 95th conference year is no exception and includes a schedule with learning tracks that focus on what you need to know for you and your organization to be successful.

It's no coincidence that we are meeting in San Diego in 2010. After the tumultuous year we all just faced, we wanted you to learn in an environment surrounded by calm blue skies, inviting beaches and a mild climate. Our headquarters hotel is the Hilton San Diego Bayfront adjacent to the Convention Center and minutes away from the historic Gaslamp Quarter. Bring your family and visit Sea World, Legoland or the San Diego Zoo before or after the Conference.
