A comprehensive and renowned international knowledge and networking event connecting the worlds of purchasing and supply management, R&D/innovation, sustainability and suppliers.

This year’s main theme was focus on connecting and sharing in four Fields of Interest such as Innovation & Technology, Human Capital, Responsibility and Supply & Finance. Real sharing of information, knowledge, transparency, sources and benefits in order to get an innovative and future-proof supply chain. Still a bigger challenge than we like to admit. This challenge addressed from various angles by 30 speakers and thought leaders.

And a unique platform for all companies and organizations offering services, knowledge or products for improving and innovating the supply process.
