Customers will “Experience the Edge” at ICON 2022 and how to reimagine, rethink and reinvent their digital supply chains and fulfillment to drive competitive advantage

Blue Yonder to plant a tree and donate to World Central Kitchen for each registration to further its mission to create more sustainable supply chains

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – April 21, 2022 – Manufacturing, logistics and retail industry leaders are invited to Orlando to hear first-hand stories of digital transformation across supply chain and omni-channel fulfillment strategies at ICON 2022. Supply chain’s biggest conference will take place both in-person and virtually May 23-25, 2022, live from Orlando, Florida. The event will feature over 170 sessions, including 50-plus customer presenters, along with an Expo Hall that will feature Blue Yonder’s solutions and more than 60 ecosystem partners.

Blue Yonder is offering ICON 2022 registrants two ways to help strengthen its ESG commitment and continue to showcase its mission that supply chain can save the world through the support of two organizations:

  • Blue Yonder will donate one tree for every ICON 2022 registration, up to 1,000 trees, with The Canopy Project. Blue Yonder has supported The Canopy Project for the past six years, planting close to 174,000 trees.
  • Blue Yonder will also donate $100 for each paid, in-person registration to Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen in its mission to aid and feed Ukrainian refugees. Blue Yonder has raised more than $32,000 to date for this effort through associate donations and a company match, which it kicked off at the start of the conflict.
