World procurement congress 2021

13-14 October 

Our Time is Now

Procurement’s vision has always been to accelerate more growth areas and capabilities for the future.

2020 has irrevocably changed the way in which we all do business. What has got us here is not going to move us forward and realise procurement’s vision to be a valued strategic business partner.

Now is the time for procurement to identify new and long-lasting sources to support business growth and play our part in fixing broader societal issues!

The Ultimate Team Experience

The Congress is an opportunity for your entire team to come together, learn, benchmark and network at all levels of the organisation. Here is the audience you can expect to be attending:


With a bespoke itinerary across a number of targeted sessions, CPOs have the opportunity to benchmark and knowledge share with peers through a series of keynote insights and working groups

Digital Leaders

Is digital emerging as the great post Covid-19 accelerator? Attendees with a digital leaning will gain insight on leveraging digital opportunities that will support during and post a Covid-19 restart.

Category Leaders

Through an itinerary built on insights on re-thinking spend patterns and re-writing category plans, category leaders will have the opportunity to deep-dive into strategic categories that bring competitive advantage to the business

Sustainability Leaders

Those senior leaders with responsibility for sustainability and CSR will be prescribed a suggested content and networking itinerary that helps with the execution and performance of the business’s sustainability agenda

Procurement Solution Providers

Engage with the world’s largest virtual procurement audience through a range of bespoke partnership opportunities created to demonstrate your thought leadership, raise awareness and generate leads

Excellence Leaders

Converting the business vision into a robust strategic reality is no easy task. For those with such a responsibility over governance, procurement capabilities and quantifying data and metrics, sessions have been designed to help accelerate the process.


General Manager, Supply Chain - MTN Group

Where and when else will i get to sit at the feet of such wisdom and experience filled global CPOs and pick at their brains from the comfort of my living room… and for free…? Its a priceless experience

Head Productivity & Performance Global Procurement, F.Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd

It is important to understand what others are doing, learn from it and drive with this learning the performance of my organisation.

CPO, Heineken

A great way to genuinely allow the procurement community to interact around the world and I’m sure all of us who attended have all taken vital elements from the sessions

CPO, Ferrara Candy Co Inc.

This is a great arena to do a fast catch up as we don’t have the time to be able to do this much infusion of information through our daily jobs.

Vice President Procurement, Delek Group

The networking, the topics, I believe I have 7 pages of notes to take back, I can’t wait to go back to our team and tell them what I’ve learned and start putting it in place.

Vice President, IBM Corporation

One, the content is excellent. Two, you have speakers from every industry and it’s top leaders in those industries who are describing what they’re going through and giving you ideas of how you can improve your journey as well.
