About Sourcing Outlook
As up to 70% of revenue is invested externally the need of control, insight and transparency within procurement and the entire supply chain is increasing. The Covid-19 pandemic has shown us how fragile supply chains may be without that insight. Supply disruption and financial disruption have been too common. Shall we leave it at that?
No – let’s come together to share experiences, to connect with people you haven’t connected with for a probably very long time or even ever. To form alliances that can also help you ahead.
Sourcing Outlook 2020 take place on October 8th based out of Stockholm. The current pandemic force and enable us to offer you to join in person in Stockholm or online. There are still limited seats and the day still consist of round table discussions which EBG are well known to enable.
Great people meeting great people – it is only HOW we can meet that may differ. Registration take place as usual.
