"Manhattan Associates' Momentum Europe events are one of the year's best opportunities for leading companies across the region to share ideas and best practice, and learn from each other about their supply chain planning and execution experiences, locally and globally," said Steve Smith, vice president, EMEA at Manhattan Associates. "This year we continue to see a rise in the number of European companies deploying best-in-class supply chain management solutions integrated with their ERP systems, accelerating growth in the demand for planning and execution solutions that support a multi-channel distribution environment, and growing awareness amongst companies to comply with new European legislation governing working hours, food traceability and electrical and electronic equipment waste/recycling. With a great line-up of speakers and a packed schedule that will cover all these issues and more, we believe our events will prove well worth a day out of the business and a great opportunity for networking with senior executives from leading companies in Europe and across the globe."

Manhattan Associates' fast expanding user community in the Asia Pacific region will get an opportunity to hear about the latest supply chain trends and developments influencing business activities across the region at next month's Momentum Asia Pacific conferences to be held in Shanghai, China (Nov 9), Tokyo, Japan (Nov 14), and Melbourne, Australia (Nov 17).
