Welcome to
Procurement Leaders' Summit

The pandemic has propelled procurement’s contribution to growth, innovation and transformation like never before. But how do leaders maintain the momentum and make strategic decisions that deliver sustainable and resilient growth?

Find answers to this question and many more at the 2022 Procurement Leaders' Summit

The global pandemic has caused a temporary disruption of supply flows and a fundamental shift towards localization of supply and diversification of suppliers, where ever economically possible. After a year of living with a pandemic, we should congratulate ourselves on successfully adapting to the new reality. But as we emerge from the pandemic, new challenges await, brought upon us by the inevitable economic crisis.

The conference programme is addressing the challenges of an uncertain future. The main conference topics are strengthening resilience and robustness in the light of macroeconomic, geostrategic and strategic changes, identifying opportunities for innovation and efficiency in procurement, procurement risk management, procurement & purchasing strategies and leadership in the Era of uncertainty.

The Procurement Leaders' Summit which is held every year along with ELSC Leadership Conclave will once again become a central point of procurement knowledge, information and networking by focusing on key procurement topics and trends, delivered by outstanding professionals and by celebrating organisational & professional achievements at The Procurement & Sourcing Awards 2022.

This edition would be held as a standalone event.
