ProcureTECH 2016

 

ProcureTECH 2016

ProcureTECH is the only event in the region dedicated purely to those technology solutions that enable greater procurement capability. Many people will be aware of the traditional 3 Pillars of procurement Capability – People, Process and Technology, but increasingly the divide between technology and process is reducing. Processes can and are being automated, driving greater efficiency and productivity, better visibility and compliance, enabling better, data-based decision making, reducing timeframes and freeing up valuable resources to engage in more strategic, value-adding activities.

Given the evident benefits one would have thought that procurement teams would be adopting technology wherever possible, yet anecdotal feedback tells us that the uptake is still relatively slow.

The programme for ProcureTECH 2016 addresses all of these issues directly, with the aim of equipping those charged with making these decisions with the necessary knowledge to get it right. The programme is unashamedly practical, delivering expert advice and opinion from a faculty of speakers who have real world experience in building capability through successful technology programmes.

Technology Showcase

ProcureTECH provides the best opportunity of the year to explore a wide range of procurement enabling solutions in one place – at one time. Attending as a hosted buyer, you can use our online meetings scheduling system to pre-schedule 20 minute appointments with those vendors you are most interested in meeting with. There is also plenty of time built in to the programme to enable more informal viewing of the solutions being showcased.

 

Reasons to attend

 

Who should attend

If you are responsible for:

  • Process improvement in your organisation (and who isn’t?)

  • Building capability

  • Driving procurement excellence

  • Ensuring that technology solutions are successfully implemented

  • Driving change management programmes to ensure adoption

  • Delivering desired outcomes, both in terms of efficiencies and savings

  • Measuring and reporting those savings

Then procureTECH is the event for you

 

Buyers attend free

As was successfully implemented at ProcureTECH 2015, the 2016 event will adopt a ‘hosted buyer’ model, whereby buyer delegates can attend free of charge.

In order to qualify for the hosted buyer programme, delegates must commit to conducting a minimum of four pre-scheduled meetings with participating technology suppliers.

These pre-scheduled meetings will be conducted while the main conference programme is in progress, meaning that hosted buyers must elect to opt out of two of the eight scheduled seminar sessions. They will still be able to attend all plenary sessions.

The meetings will be organised using our online meetings scheduling service. A few weeks before the event, delegates will be provided access to the system, allowing them to start scheduling meetings that best fit with those sessions they particularly wish to attend.

Please note that due to demand, we are having to restrict tickets to a maximum of 2 hosted buyer tickets per organisation. Additional delegates can, of course, purchase tickets at the standard rate.

Technology Showcase

ProcureTECH provides a unique opportunity for suppliers of procurement support technologies to interact with a targeted audience. Whether participating as a ProcureTECH Partner, Exhibitor in the technology showcase, or as a Networking Partner, you will get numerous opportunities to engage with an audience whose sole purpose for attending is to learn more about the kind of solutions you have to offer.

The ‘Hosted Buyer’ programme enables vendors and buyers to conduct pre-arranged meetings throughout the event. It provides Partners and Exhibitors with even greater opportunities than before to engage meaningfully with our audience of qualified prospects.

If you are a provider of technology or technology related services that support procurement, then you can’t afford to miss ProcureTECH.
