SINGAPORE -- January 2, 2013

Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, today
announced that Douglas Kent, global vice president of Avnet Velocity, will
chair the Supply Chain & Logistics Summit Asia in Singapore. The conference
will be held at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia, Singapore, on January 8 and 9. In

the supply chain in 2013.

“As we look out at 2013 and beyond, there are some key trends that will
heavily influence the global supply chain,” said Kent. “During the conference,
we will examine how these predictions will be realized, who will be impacted

being delivered.”

executives with the knowledge they need to optimize their supply chain
management and logistics operations in Asia. The summit will highlight best
