Commodity/PROcurement EDGE Conference: Open for Registration

Spend Matters and MetalMiner are pleased to announce that registration is now available for our second event of 2013: Commodity/PROcurement EDGE.

This 3-day conference, taking place October 7-9, 2013, at the Hotel Sax Chicago, follows up our popular 2012 conference, (CommodityEDGE: Sourcing Intelligence for the New Normal) and we couldn’t be more excited by how it is shaping up. The content and takeaways will be absolutely invaluable for those in a category/commodity management or sourcing role.
