 The Supply Chain Buzz is Supply Chain Now’s regular Monday livestream, held at 12n ET each week. This show focuses on some of the leading stories from global supply chain and global business, always with special guests – the most important of which is the live audience!

This week’s edition of The Buzz featured two audience favorites as guests: Constantine Limberakis and Mike Griswold. With many school districts starting to ramp up for students to return, and retailers stocking the shelves in anticipation, the team kicked off the stream by reminiscing about their best Back-to-School memories.

In this livestream, created in collaboration with a live Supply Chain Now audience, Mike, Constantine, and Scott discussed:

• The significant increase in K-12 back-to-school spending forecasted by the National Retail Federation and Proper Insights and Analytics

• A recent State Department announcement that they will partner Costa Rica as an additional location for semiconductor manufacturing

• Additional insights from the Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 listing for 2023

• Walmart’s experimentation with a chatbot to negotiate with suppliers who have smaller contracts or only supply equipment for the company’s own use
