18th Annual Chemical and Pharma Strategic Sourcing & Procurement Summit

Sourcing & Procurement fields will face numerous changes due to the impact of inflation, war, global instability and climate changes. Chemical and pharma companies have to prepare themselves for the metamorphoses in order to keep up with the ever-changing world. Is sustainability going to be a keyword in the chemical and pharma sourcing & procurement area for the next years? Will it be possible to stay out of the digital world to remain on top?

The 18th Annual Chemical and Pharma Strategic Sourcing & Procurement Summit has been designed to cover the current and future trends, objectives, and issues regarding the procurement transformation, digitalisation of sourcing and procurement processes, generating the right talents models, implementing sustainability initiatives alongside supplier diversity programmes and many others.

This interactive business conference will provide you with valuable insights and key strategies from top players within the chemical/petrochemical and pharma industries. You will also benefit from remarkable networking opportunities as the number of seats is limited. It will be the right place for sharing ideas, getting insights and inspiration, learning from experienced leaders and establishing important business contacts!
