Gartner Sourcing & Strategic Vendor Relationships Summit will address how Sourcing, Procurement and Vendor Management can proactively become agents and enablers of digital business. The agenda will focus on both traditional run-the-business sourcing and vendor management best practices as well as new models to increase sourcing’s proactiveness in supporting the organization’s digital business transformation.
The one event to attend to get a strategic view and tactical insight on sourcing, IT services and vendor management – throughout the sourcing lifecycle. No other event can offer such a broad and deep agenda, with trusted advice from Gartner analysts, and real world examples from our selected guest speakers.
Our 2017 Gartner Sourcing & Strategic Vendor Relationships Summit agenda features dedicated tracks for sourcing managers, procurement/contract managers, IT vendor managers, and a track on emerging trends and disruptive technologies. In addition, our exclusive Program for Senior Sourcing Executives provides a forum for the most senior level delegates to engage with Gartner analysts and peers in a series of presentations and discussions. Drill down on your hottest sourcing topics based on your role, experience level and key focus.
Listen to inspirational guest keynote speakers; hear from Gartner-invited end-user case study speakers – real practitioners with real-world knowledge; and learn from Gartner analysts – the foremost experts in their areas of focus.
