In response to the ongoing impact of the Coronavirus pandemic and the success of the CIPS Virtual Conference 2020 we have decided to run this virtual global conference. Creating a more accessible event for the whole of the global procurement profession to access.
We are committed to delivering an interactive experience which will tackle the challenges and questions your organisation currently faces head on. With many workforces still working from home, we appreciate you may have other work or family commitments to focus on. Therefore, we believe delivering this event online will give more people the opportunity to attend and take advantage of the learning and networking opportunities available.
