Procurement is increasingly becoming a global discipline as firms rely upon international competition and suppliers in emerging economies to reduce input costs.
But buying globally carries significant risks. Recent years have seen destabilising international events including natural disasters in Japan and the US, political upheavals in North Africa and a global economic crisis. Each of these has disrupted the supply of goods and services.
At the 2014 CIPS Middle East Conference, to be held on 12 May at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, in Dubai, find out how procurement executives and experts in the Middle East are tackling these challenges, and, taking advantage of the opportunities, and what the future looks like for the profession.
Hear from local and global speakers, participate in practical workshops, network with peers and celebrate excellence with our second annual CIPS Middle East Awards 2014.
Book your place today to ensure the development of the profession and your career.
After the conference we will be holding an awards ceremony and networking dinner at the same venue, the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, in Dubai.
