Since the start of 2020, procurement teams have been challenged by the new realities created by social distancing and the aftermath of Covid-19. These events have served to stress test the networks that procurement executives had put in place over the past several years, while pointing to areas that still need to be improved in the near future.

Within this virtual event, we will be exploring topics related to the development of successful procurement strategies for Q4 2020, as well as what changes lay on the horizon for 2021. Examining how procurement was able to adapt their strategies during the global pandemic will allow our panelists and attendees to improve their overall performance and develop preparedness that will help to strengthen their supply chains far into the future.

Listen to industry leaders discuss their perspectives on the industry throughout 2020 and beyond. 
Enjoy an in-depth discussion of key industry drivers typical of most live industry events. 

Hear from your industry peers about their recent successes, as well as solution providers about the leading tools driving the  practice forward. 

Since the event has multiple sessions, you select the material that makes the most sense for you and your team.
