We are exhibiting at this year’s World Procurement Congress and Awards 2018 which will be taking place at the InterContinental London - The O2 from 16th – 17th May.
This is our third year exhibiting at the World Procurement Congress which has established itself as the foremost global gathering for senior procurement professionals.
The Congress enables you to gain global insight, access to a more senior network of peers and authoritative content to equip you with the actionable insight, inspiration and networking to help you move forward, at speed. There are six key themes that will be explored:
- Flexible strategies
The fundamentals of creating ambitious plans for years to come, while being able to adapt quickly to meet emerging challenges.
- Operational agility
The strategy elements that deliver quick results and remain strong and flexible during disruption.
- Driving innovation
Your role in channelling supply base capabilities to drive business objectives.
- Digitalisation components
The tools, data and strategies you need to harness technology for more effective and efficient decision-making.
- Shifting supply bases
Collaborative approaches and IP governance to unlock value from service organisations and start-ups.
- Evolving skillsets
The capabilities and knowledge your modern team needs to evolve and thrive, from digital to data to leadership.
Following on from the Congress, the World Procurement Awards will be taking place on the evening of the 17th of May. The awards are a prestigious and most sought-after accolade in procurement, recognising the most innovative teams, initiatives and individuals across the globe. Each submission has endured a rigorous 3-stage judging process of online judging, peer review and face to face regional debate. We look forward to being a part of this and wishing everyone on the shortlist the best of luck!
