Covid-19 has led to price and supply shocks causing unprecedented challenges to our procurement strategies

It’s forced us to totally re-prioritise. But how do you do that when everything changes daily?
Without benchmarking and finding out what your peers are doing you could be missing out on critical information to maintain your business’ resilience and prepare for the future.

That’s why ProcureCon has gone digital. Join this virtual event to find out how others from the front line of procurement are adapting in these unprecedented times.
