About the Event

The procurement landscape is undergoing a profound transformation driven by digital advancements, geopolitical tensions, and sustainability imperatives. In today's dynamic environment, emerging technologies such as AI, ML, predictive analysis, cloud computing, and RPA empower digital procurement to enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and enable faster, transparent, and sustainable procurement processes.

At this Summit, we delve into the latest trends and challenges shaping the procurement sphere. As the world grapples with geopolitical tensions and global conflicts, we recognize the impact these events have on country policies and the global procurement function. These challenges necessitate a resilient and agile procurement approach. Furthermore, the role of AI, cognitive analytics, and predictive technologies in procurement is playing a vital role. With the growing focus on ESG compliance and sustainability, we aim to provide a comprehensive platform for procurement leaders to explore innovative solutions and strategies for the future.

Join us for the "9th Edition Procurement Excellence Summit & Awards 2024" to gain deep insights into latest procurement strategies, challenge and the opportunities to drive sustainable practices in the organization to shape the future of procurement.
