5th CEE Procurement & Supply Forum - 16th October 2018 - Prague

Seizing new Opportunities in Central & Eastern Europe

  • Strategies to access Central and Eastern European market
  • Sourcing in Central and Eastern Europe – best practices
  • Successful supplier selection and development
  • Ensuring profitable growth through tactical partnerships

SPECIAL: Supplier-Buyer-Matchmaking

For a longer period sourcing in Central-Eastern Europe (CEE) has been state of the art for international companies. Although, within the last years its significance has changed: It focuses on finding optimal suppliers in times of international crises, strategic changes and investing in long term supplier relationships. This includes intelligent purchasing concepts and innovative collaboration. More than ever, suppliers have to go beyond simple product delivery – they are innovation and value-creation partners. Taking benefit from geographical proximity, as well as from its high number of potential suppliers, CEE provides numerous options for European companies. New models of cooperation and systematic collaboration with suppliers from CEE can generate significant advantages for both parties. With the 5th CEE Procurement & Supply Forum the German Association for Supply Chain Management, Procurement and Logistics (BME), the German-Czech Chamber of Commerce (DTIHK) and its partners provide a unique platform to enable discussions between procurement professionals and suppliers at the highest level – we want to build bridges and want to create a living network between procurement professionals, as well as between buyers and best-in-class suppliers.
