We are exhibiting at this year’s World Procurement Congress and Awards 2019 which will be taking place at the InterContinental London - The O2 from 15th – 16th May.
This is our fourth year exhibiting at the World Procurement Congress which has established itself as the foremost global gathering for senior procurement professionals. We will be situated at stand number 9 so please do come by and visit us for a chat and coffee. We look forward to seeing you there!
This year the Congress’ theme is all about - High velocity procurement: The competitive advantage. Where over 700 senior executives will get together for valuable discussions on increasing the agility and velocity of the procurement function and maximising the competitive advantage it can offer your organisation. The first day will begin with a look at the global macro trends impacting businesses with a grounded look at the tangible and practical requirements for CPO’s and their teams in creating competitive advantage, whilst day two will have a forward-looking focus with a look to procurement Moonshots. Some of the topics will cover the following:
- Team and Culture Development
Exploring the balance of skills and personalities required to meet the needs of modern-day procurement.
- Elevated Operating Models
Building an organisational structure that is flexible enough to continually deliver during disruption.
- Emerging Technology
Learning ways to capitalise on the success cases of early adopters to lower the risk of implementation.
- Optimising Business Alignment

- Risk Management

Following on from the Congress, the World Procurement Awards will be taking place on the evening of the 16th of May. The awards are a prestigious and most sought-after accolade in procurement. Competing for a spot on the prestigious list of finalists and winners, organisations of all sizes go head to head to prove they are the most esteemed, innovative, and transformative players in the industry. We look forward to being a part of this and wishing everyone on the shortlist the best of luck!
