EPE – European Procurement Excellence - 26th June 2018 Dresden

Shared intelligence: Transforming procurement for tomorrow's business

Defining tomorrow’s business equals creating a visionary image of the future. It leaves plenty of room for leeway and is subject to profound changes along the route. Nonetheless it is safe to say that today’s dynamics in technology and in terms of organisational structures and human capital will have inevitable transformative impact on tomorrow's business and with that the procurement function. 

A shared intelligence-approach allows gathering, analysing and disseminating information that underpin smart decision-making on an individual level. Thus, in its 13th edition the BME’s European Procurement Excellence Summit will continue to offer a high-level platform for intense exchange and high-quality networking to Procurement Executives from Europe’s leading companies. 

Once again designed as an invitation-only event the European Procurement Excellence Summit offers attendees valuable insights into how to benefit from a changing playing field and create a forward momentum that allows anchoring the relevance of the procurement function in the value creation process of tomorrow’s business. 

The 13th European Procurement Excellence Summit will bring together thought leaders, highly regarded mentors and influencers whose experiences benefit their organisations and inspire the business ecosystem they operate in. Through inspirational keynotes and small, interactive working groups we aim to contribute to enable Europe’s Procurement Executives to meet every challenge ahead.
