17th Annual Chemical and Pharma Strategic Sourcing & Procurement Summit


Sourcing and procurement have a number of different and unusual characteristics, both in their structure and in the nature of their business operations, which are little known outside the industries but which materially affect the process of bringing new strategies and seeking out a successful partnership. Against the backdrop, we observe upcoming trends which are affecting the future of the chemical and pharma industries: sustainability, demographics, and technology.     

The 17th Annual Chemical and Pharma Strategic Sourcing & Procurement Summit has been designed to investigate how these observations as well as the strategic context of the chemical and pharma industries are changing and deliberate about business expansion through automated technology. At this remarkable meeting, experienced leaders will dwell on major challenges and trends in the field of procurement & sourcing, such as recovering production after lockdowns, touchless procurement, centralised data management, automation tools, strategies for successful partnership, reinventing procurement function, ways for cost-savings, procurement value matrix and much more.

Do you want to know how to create a robust procurement strategy, or how to make procurement the heart of what you do?
