To extract 1 ounce of gold (31 grams) a digger has to process from 2 up to 91 tons of excavated material: soil and rock! It requires enormous amounts of time, resources and energy, as well as experience and great knowledge. It is a profession for the chosen few, tough people, dedicated to their jobs. Just like the position of a Procurement Professional. The procurement process is like constant “panning for gold” and looking for nuggets, often hidden deep “underground”. Resting on one’s laurels is out of the question. During the Procurement Forum we bring together “gold diggers” open for new inspirations, who represent procurement departments of the leading companies on the market!

ABOUT THE FORUM

The Procurement Forum is a gathering of practitioners from all over Poland, responsible for managing procurement processes in the biggest manufacturing and service providing companies. Over 900 participants have attended the previous editions so far.

OBJECTIVE

The Forum is focused on sharing inspirations in the company of Procurement Professionals, leading to an increase in innovativeness and effectiveness of key activities and procurement processes in their companies, and consequently to ensuring their long-term development.

WHAT’S NEW IN THE 2017 EDITION:

  • Keynote Speakers from Switzerland, Germany, Luxemburg, Great Britain, France and Poland – together over 40 speakers!
  • 4 parallel sessions: direct, indirect, relationships with suppliers, e-procurement
  • Study visit in the Coca-Cola HBC Poland Factory in Radzymin, moderated by representatives of its procurement department
