Chief Procurement Officer dinner;
What your suppliers bring to the table

CPOs are ever searching for new ways to add value. Alone, you can only do so much. This is why they are increasingly looking to their suppliers. It was found by the Institute of Supply Management in 2017 that 25% to 45% of revenue from product innovations are sourced externally.

Join a group of Denmark's top Procurement Leaders for an interactive evening. Work together under the guidance of a Nordic Chef. Learn more about culinary innovation through supplier collaboration while preparing your own starter and dessert. During dinner listen to 3 experts on the topics of supplier risk, innovation, and sustainability. Go home with new friendships, knowledge, and a full stomach.

Some key take-aways you can expect to go home with:

  • How sustainability has become a unique opportunity to drive value creation
  • How having a firm grasp on supplier risk can make or brake your company
  • How upcoming technologies like Blockchain and AI will put Procurement in the driver-seat when it comes to innovation
