The CPO Forum is immediate access to a high level of industry insights for CPOs to draw from. The forum brings peers and experts together to share personal experiences and corporate successes. It also offers procurement leaders ideas and solutions in an environment of collaboration that builds collegiality.
This summit is designed to practically assist Supply Chain practitioners in the public sector. With 13 years of bringing leaders and drivers together, this remains the must-attend industry event of the year.
