Supply Chain Management Program - Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida - April, 2018


  • The Venue

    The Supply Chain Management Program will be held April, 2018, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida at  Hilton Garden Inn Jacksonville/Ponte Vedra.

    Ponte Vedra Beach is synonymous with golf – though it offers many other allures. The PGA Tour and The Players Championship are played at TPC Sawgrass, home of the famous 17th-hole island green. Ponte Vedra’s 40-foot sand dunes are among the highest in Florida. From their peak, they race down to white sand beaches made from Appalachian quartz and ancient coquina. Seaside resorts and private escapes can be found in the twisted oaks and hammocks of wild palmettos.
