As we tentatively brush off the shackles of the pandemic it's time for procurement and supply chain professionals to start preparing for in-person events again. Naturally, this won’t be possible for everyone but we are willing to bet that all the events listed below will be making sure those who prefer or need a virtual option will be well catered for.
Whether you attend in person or across the ether, it is vital that the procurement and supply chain community continue to build alliances and learn from one another. Networking and sharing knowledge and ideas are what makes our sector so vibrant and forward-thinking, after all.
So, without further ado let’s look at some of the top procurement and supply chain events for 2022.
Gartner Supply Chain Leaders Forum 2021
11–12 July 2022, Hertfordshire, UK
The Gartner Supply Chain Leaders Forum 202 aims to connect supply chain and operations executives in person and virtually over the course of two days. Here they can share valuable insights on supply chain risk, circular economy, customer centricity and much more. Planning is currently underway and Gartner will be sharing details soon on their website and social media.
Last year's forum included keynote speeches and fireside chats from senior procurement and supply chain figures at Cisco, Lenovo, Schneider Electric and Nike. The topics covered were wide-ranging and included sustainability, digital transformation, risk, the circular economy and many more.
