6th Annual Strategic Sourcing and Procurement MENA Summit


In the current unstable circumstances of a global pandemic, there appears a growing need to keep your company strong and successful despite all the challenges it is undergoing while restrictions are in place. In this environment, procurement function becomes one of the first players in the company to provide cost saving strategies, balance profitability and to keep strong relationships with suppliers in times of economic slowdown.

How to make your company safe and stable in the most difficult time? How procurement digitalisation keeps gaining pace and why is it important to use new tools in your procurement & strategic sourcing process? Join us at our interactive conference to get all the answers and express your opinion in a circle of high-level procurement professionals!

The 6th Annual Strategic Sourcing & Procurement MENA Summit was designed for procurement professionals to have an opportunity to share their experience during a face-to-face networking business event, where all current trends and challenges will be discussed during presentations and roundtable and panel discussions. Our speakers will share their case studies about how to turn procurement into the career of choice, how to manage risks in unpredictable circumstances, what are the crucial steps on the road to procurement transformation or what technologies are successful CPOs using to make their procurement fit for the future. These and other valuable topics will be covered at our sourcing and procurement conference!

It is time to look into future and plan for the time when we will come to the new normal! Get inspired by top players on the market and benefit from remarkable case studies at the 6th Annual Strategic Sourcing & Procurement MENA Summit!
