ProcureCon Europe: “… Exceptional Conference for Senior Procurement Professionals…” says delegate

An early reminder about one of the season's biggest procurement events for senior procurement professionals -- ProcureCon Europe. An early reminder this may be, but you can start registering for it now!

ProcureCon Europe takes place again in Berlin this year, Hotel Palace, Europa Center, Budapester Str. 45, 10787, Germany, from 8th to 10th November. There were more than 300 delegates last time we attended (and you can read our reviews here, here, and here, to give you a taste if you haven't been before) and this time the three-day event looks set to attract just as many, if not more. There's a rather impressive line-up of speakers that should pull the crowds, including:

Richard Beaumont, who made an excellent chair last time we attended, has a wealth of experience and is now leading procurement at Prudential Global Digital Services. He was previously at the Co-Op Bank (wonder if he read our series on the Kath Harmeston tribunal) and Rolls-Royce. Elena Bernardo, Head of Procurement Europe, Amazon, part of the programme for the first time at ProcureCon, is expected to bring business-leadership experience to discussions this year; Eugene Daly, CP Transformation Programme Lead, Shell, is billed as one of ProcureCon's most highly qualified speakers, he oversees transformation across Shell Procurement so his discussions on transformation best practice should be worth hearing. Of course there are many more, with top people from Bayer, Vodafone, KPN, Coveris, Schiphol Airport, Philips, Tata Steel (should provoke some interesting discussions), the list goes on.

As well as the presentations, the event promises small-group interaction to share and learn from procurement, purchasing and supply chain professionals from around the world, workshops, discussions, interactive sessions and networking -- a way to "rethink and improve your existing procurement strategies."

The full agenda is downloadable here - topics will include: automating buying processes; measuring and improving the overall performance of procurement; and operating beyond supplier contract.

Anyway, there's much more on the website here, and of course -- we will be reporting extensively from the event for all our readers, but it would be even better to see you there.
(We're also pleased to tell you that there's a 15% discount for Spend Matters readers with code SM15)
