Agenda 2030: Agile and Networked

The beginning of 2016 clearly showed that the economic outlook is becoming ever more unpredictable and that the risks are increasing. Contrary to expectations, the deceleration of growth in China, the geopolitical crisis in the Middle East and the financial plight of countries that export crude oil have all had an impact on the export-driven German industry. Therefore, it is no surprise that the product markets, and even more so the financial markets, show a dramatic increase of volatility.

The new normal is forcing our companies to keep their business activities closely in step with the  markets. Thus agility and strong networks are essential success factors when it comes to working in an intelligent and target-oriented manner.

This is why the 51st Symposium will cover issues on the following topics:

  • Purchasing 2030: thinking out of the box
  • The value contribution of purchasing: enhancing success
  • Lowering costs and increasing quality: mastering the balancing act
  • Supplier management: enforcing collaborative solutions
  • International supply chains: reshaping cooperation
  • Global supply chains: mitigating risks
  • e-Solutions and business analytics: leveraging digitalisation

Benefit from the 51st Symposium Purchasing and Logistics and learn how to turn exclusive insights into successful actions. Europe’s biggest congress for procurement, logistics and supply chain professionals awaits you.

You can look forward to:

  • New ideas and best-practice sharing
  • Tried and tested solutions
  • Networking at the evening events
  • Exchanging ideas with over 120 solution providers
  • Benchmarking with purchasing and SCM peers
