The European Excellence Experience 2020
Crossing functional boarders: Transforming procurement & supply chain for tomorrow‘s business
There is no doubt that every successful purchasing and supply chain manager is up to date when it comes to mastering the current challenges in their respective area. However, true success in the future will be largely determined by working shoulder to shoulder with all other areas of the business. This close interaction enables the collection, analysis and dissemination of information that supports the company‘s best possible decision-making at the individual level.
This is exactly where the 15th European Procurement Excellence Summit (EPE) and the 3rd European Supply Chain Excellence Summit (ESCE) come in, both taking place on June 23rd 2020 in Dresden. The summit answers important questions about the digital networking of all links in the value and supply chains. It also sees itself as a top-class platform for the intensive exchange and high-quality networking of purchasing and supply chain managers from top European companies. This year again, the summit will provide you with valuable insights into how you can successfully react to the megatrends of globalisation and digitisation and how you can profit in the best possible way from the changing framework conditions.
The ESCE will take place parallel to the European Procurement Excellence Summit (EPE). With both summits under one roof, you will have the opportunity to think beyond silos, exchange forward-looking ideas and develop collaborative solutions for procurement and supply chains together with Europe‘s most creative minds. But that‘s not all: The congress hotel Taschenbergpalais Kempinski Dresden guarantees you an exclusive environment to be inspired by leading CPOs and CSCOs through innovative ideas, fresh thinking and meaningful interaction with like-minded people.
The aim of both event formats is to intensify cooperation among leading European purchasing and supply chain managers. Both the EPE and the ESCE will give you practical business advice on how to make your procurement the engine of innovation and value creation for your company. You can also look forward to experienced keynote speakers who will discuss new forms of personnel management with you so that you can win the War for Talents. Last but not least, we focus on new disruptive technologies such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) or Artificial Intelligence (AI) and discuss with you in small, interactive working groups how your supply chain & procurement can become the enabler of digital transformation.
Let me conclude by saying: Be part of our procurement and supply chain community! I am looking forward to seeing you at the event!
