ProcureCon IT Sourcing Virtual Event

The Virtual Event For Senior Level IT Sourcing Executives

April 20, 2021 | 12PM ET

Where Sourcing Leaders Connect & Inspire

As an IT procurement leader, failing to establish your role in digital transformation could make your team less valuable to the business.

Are you offering insights into the best commercial partners for AI, automation, data analytics and mobile apps? What’s more, are you investing in the right cloud, software, telecoms and hardware solutions to support your organization’s drive to digital?

To find out how your IT Procurement, SAM, ITAM and Vendor Management programs measure up against North America’s top IT spenders, participate in easily accessible fireside chats, panels, and interviews, all available digitally and on-demand. ProcureCon has been bringing you industry-leading content for 20 years, and is proud to be a valued community partner.

A Unique Experience


The ProcureCon IT Sourcing Virtual Event is an online forum mirroring our in-person events. We’re bringing you exclusive knowledge from top-notch industry leaders at the touch of a button.

Here's what you get when you attend:

Learn From A Variety of  Experts, Debating Together

Learn from multiple, live conversations so you gain unbiased perspectives on what's working right now. (They might even disagree on some points - but you'll get the full picture.)   

Executive-Level Content

We provide custom-made, high-level content that fosters a fruitful dialogue amongst participants. Engage in in-depth discussions on how senior executives are leading the charge, to provide you with a rare chance to benchmark against the biggest brands in the country.
