Event Description

Join CPO's from all across the UK!

The business world is ever changing and becoming more complex year on year. As a result, the role of the CPO is forever changing and, in a way, has forced the CPO to put themselves in the shoes of the CEO and focus on key business drivers to stay ahead of the curve.

 

Discussing key topics such as Procurement transformation, the uses of IoT, Data Analytics in Supplier Management and how technology is shaping procurement, CPO Event gives you the opportunity to meet leading decision makers under one roof at one time, to be part of the discussions that are shaping the future of procurement and to network and develop contacts that will strengthen your business.

 

The programme is driven by our senior level Advisory Board including representatives from BBC, Engie, Ladbrokes Coral, Office of National Statistics and TUI.

 

The CPO Event brings together leaders from across the public, large enterprises & mid-market sectors. The Procurement event will provide you with a strategic and practical toolkit to help drive transformation including:

  • A full day of leading CPO’s discussing the latest industry trends
  • Workshops, panel discussions & Round table sessions led by visionaries within procurement
  • First-hand case studies on the challenges facing procurement
  • Fantastic networking opportunities with peers throughout the day

 
Event Includes:

  • Over 50 Senior Level Procurement Directors
  • Keynotes, Interactive Round-tables and Lively Panel Discussions
  • Industry leading topics around IoT, Transformation, Data etc
  • Networking with Industry Leaders

  • Congratulations on a superb event! A well worked agenda with relevant content and an invaluable opportunity to meet with a senior audience in an environment as stunning and inspiring as the Celtic Manor.Throughout my esteemed career I have attended more events than I care to recall, but this one really stands for me as being amongst the best! I would like to thank the team at GBE for their diligence and commitment to creating a outstanding event from start to finish. Thanks

    - Shane Stowells - Sales Director, Tangoe
  • Having been a salesperson for over 20 years I have been to many networking events over the years and I have to say, this has got to be one of the best! It was well managed from the outset but the calibre of attendees was far superior and the timings of all meetings were kept. I would definitely recommend this event to anyone who is serious about networking and lead generation. Looking forward to the next one!
