Unlike all other industry events, which are either thinly veiled sales-pitch platforms or hectic trade shows with thousands of lower‐level attendees being shuffled around, ProcureCon focuses on the quality of attendees. The intimate size and relaxed atmosphere makes it easy for attendees to make meaningful, lasting connections with colleagues and potential new service partners.
In addition, every single ProcureCon event delivers:
√ Access to 200‐300 senior level executives from world‐class organizations actively seeking intimate and relevant benchmarking opportunities
√ The most current content, as shaped by year‐round research with CPOs and other leaders within the industry
√ Innovative case studies that allow attendees valuable insight into how the latest savings and margin improvements were achieved
√ Private boardroom and roundtable meetings, providing the ultimate environment conducive to having open conversations and building new business relationships
The ProcureCon event series has grown into the premier opportunity on the continent for the industry to learn from, and network with, one another.
