Presenter Lineup Announced for April 9 - 10 Aberdeen Group 2013 Supply Chain 
Management Summit 
Theme of SCM Industry Event Is "Supply Chain Innovation: Engine for
Growth" 
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/13/13 --  Aberdeen Group, a
Harte-Hanks Company (NYSE: HHS), today announced the presenter lineup
for its 2013 Supply Chain Management (SCM) Summit being held April 9
- 10 at the Swissotel in Chicago. The theme of the event is "Supply
Chain Innovation: Engine for Growth." 
Now in its seventh year, the Aberdeen Supply Chain Management Summit
continues to be recognized as the premier forum for leading supply
chain executives to share insights on best practices, strategic
process development and business improvements, as well as serving as
a vehicle for attendees to learn about the most innovative products,
solutions and services within the supply chain industry category. The
event features a unique combination of keynote addresses examining
strategic topics impacting global supply chain, and breakout sessions
presenting tactics to address these issues at all stages of the
supply chain. 
"As the global economy continues to recover from the worldwide
recession, most manufacturing and supply chain organizations are
seeing a gradual rebound in shipping volumes," according to Bryan
Ball, Vice President and Principal Analyst for the Aberdeen Supply
Chain Management research practice. "Along with being prepared to
address growing demand, supply chain professionals must manage the
extended geographic reach of their supply or value chains, and the
ensuing need to address complexity through collaborative solutions,
enabling greater visibility and improved efficiencies across the
various parties that encompass a modern supply chain." 
Content and topics for the 2013 Summit will reflect the innovation
occurring across industries as companies prepare for growth in terms
of organization, partners, visibility and solutions, while managing
increasingly complex and constantly changing supply chains.
