11th Annual Global Strategic Sourcing and Procurement Summit

As the market and technology continually evolve, procurement leaders are currently operating in the most challenging market environment in recent years. The conventional operating model's flaws are becoming more evident and expensive due to the inflationary surge and frequent shortages of essential supplies. The war in Ukraine has brought to the forefront a slew of noneconomic factors that must now be factored into sourcing choices. How are we incorporating the knowledge gained and progress made during this challenging period into our operating paradigm moving forward?

The 11th Annual Global Strategic Sourcing & Procurement Summit brings together top procurement and sourcing leaders from around the world to discuss the industry's innovations, challenges, and opportunities. This highly anticipated event will take place on the 13th and 14th of September in the beautiful city of Vienna, Austria. With a focus on innovation, sustainability, and digitalisation, our speakers will share their expertise and insights on topics such as ESG in procurement, supplier management, contract negotiations, risk management, digital procurement transformation programs, procurement talent management and more.

Attendees have an opportunity to network with peers, engage in thought-provoking debates, and learn from top players through keynote speeches, roundtables and panel discussions. This cross-industry conference is the perfect platform to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and network with like-minded professionals. Join us in Vienna for an unforgettable experience and take your career and organisation to the next level!
