Powering Business Alignment Through Category Leadership
Procurement never stands still, which is why the content and experience at European Forum change every year.
2017 sees a totally new, restructured agenda to provide you with two specific content streams: one on Category Leadership for Indirect Leaders and one on Transformational Triggers for CPOs, with appropriately positioned plenary sessions that will get the two audiences together for discussion around the theme of Business Alignment and procurement’s strategic contribution to the business.
When you join us, not only will you be able to hear from some of the industry’s top thinkers but also be able to take advantage of the new emphasis on networking, informal discussion and engagement with your community of peers.
Join 150+ like-minded senior professionals at the heart of global business to embrace opportunity by discovering the latest trends in customer-centric procurement. Learn about the out-of-the box thinking which is driving innovation.
