27 – 29 April 2021

Driving resilience, building partnerships and mitigating risk in a volatile world

Our businesses, communities and supply chains are interconnected and interdependent. Knowing your suppliers, building trust, achieving visibility, building new approaches to risk management and thinking through greater localisation versus globalisation are just some of the key considerations to mitigate disruption.

Across the 3-day virtual event we will be discussing approaches to cost-efficiency and increased resilience. Meet the future by gathering knowledge and benchmarking with the world’s premier network for procurement leaders.
