The 52nd Symposium Purchasing and Logistics is your platform to share and gain actionable insights and to discuss success strategies with your peers related to procurement and supply chain management.

The motto this year is "Adding Value: Leveraging Global Networks".

Global networks of people and things provide tremendous opportunities. However, to harvest these advantages, close cooperation not limited by departments, companies and even countries is an absolute must! We must resist all tendencies to erect new trade restrictions and instead strive to pull down all borders. The logic of internet-based connectivity is: Together we are stronger than if we act alone.

Seize the opportunity to discuss with delegates from all industries and speakers from renowned companies how to future-proof your procurement and supply chain organisation and how to leverage the full potential of digitalisation. Keynote speakers include:

  • Dr. Gregor Gysi, Member of the Federal Parliament Germany, President of the European Left ·
  • Sanjay Mehta, Vice President Product Procurement Operations, Nokia ·
  • Michael Horn, Member of the Board, Körber AG

Take a look behind the curtain and learn how they set up their supply chain management, how they mitigate risks and decrease costs through supplier collaboration, innovation and standardised processes.

2000 delegates and over 100 exhibitors in the accompanying trade exhibition and two evening events will offer the best networking options. You will leave with both future-oriented inspiration as well as proven best practices. You will also extend your own network in the procurement community with colleagues, partners and customers.
