I'm looking forward to covering Corporate United's Synergy 2006 conference on Spend Matters tomorrow and Thursday. I had a chance to catch up with a number of Synergy attendees tonight over dinner, and the event appears to be shaping up to be an informative, yet intimate affair relative to the other conferences happening in the next couple of weeks. There are a number of diverse topics on the agenda -- from low cost country sourcing to managing entrepreneurial suppliers. But the quality of the speakers is quite strong across the board, and I have high expectations for the event. Stay tuned!
