Most procurement teams are grappling with the challenges of ‘going digital’. The drivers for this are many; from the desire to streamline processes and drive efficiencies, to better serve end users, to capture better data, to drive greater compliance, to free up procurement time to work more strategically or simply to buy better.
Now in its seventh year, ProcureTECH is the region’s only event specifically focussed on those technologies that enable and assist the procurement function.
The 2020 programme will address the key challenges most procurement teams face when making the business case for adopting technology, selecting the right solutions and ensuring that implementation goes to plan. It will also include practical insights into how you can leverage existing technology to achieve great things.
The programme will be highly interactive with many sessions featuring cross-room discussions and workshop-type activities. In keeping with the theme of the event, we will also be using interactive event technology to drive increased engagement with delegates throughout the event.
As at all previous ProcureTECH events, buyers will be able to attend under the FREE ‘hosted buyer’ model: See details below.View Speakers
ProcureTECH will provide the only opportunity of the year for procurement professionals to explore a wide range of procurement enabling solutions in one place – at one time.
The Technology Showcase (trade show) at ProcureTECH usually features most of the leading providers of technology solutions in the market, with everything from enterprise end-to-end solutions to more niche players who specialize in specific elements of the procurement process.
Viewing the solutions in one-to-one pre-scheduled meetings in the tech showcase provides a far better opportunity to understand their different features and benefits than is often the case at events, where you are trying to have the discussion during a break with your hands full of coffee and muffins (or the like!).
As has been the case at all previous ProcureTECH events, this event will adopt a ‘hosted buyer’ model, whereby buyer/procurement delegates can attend free of charge, in exchange for committing to undertake a minimum of four pre-scheduled thirty-minute meetings with participating solutions providers. Given that one of the main reasons that most delegates attend ProcureTECH is to look at the different technology solutions on offer, participating in the pre-scheduled meetings is a great benefit.
The 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 scheduled sessions during the programme. The meetings are organised using an online meetings scheduling platform that we open up to buyer delegates and solutions providers in the week before the event.
Any one organisation may only claim a maximum of two hosted buyer tickets.
Adoption of the right technologies has long been recognised as one of the three key pillars for building procurement capability.
By attending ProcureTECH you will not only have the chance to explore what technologies are out there and what they can do for you, but also accelerate your understanding of the key issues involved in:
