I just confirmed my travel plans for the week after next, and I'm extremely excited to announce that I'll be going to Aberdeen Group's Event: The CPO's Summit on November 16th and 17th. For those Spend Matters readers who plan to make it, I look forward to catching up with you in person. Drop me a line before hand and I'll be on the look-out for you. But for everyone else, I plan to keep my fingers busy as I post extensively on the events throughout the two days. Personally, I'm psyched to be going. From what I hear, the attendee list appears to be shaping up to be a who-is-who of the executive ranks of the Spend Management and procurement world. As of Tuesday, Tim Minahan let me know that the purchasing power of the audience represented over $272 billion.
