10 things to look forward to at Forge: ENGAGE

10 things to look forward to at Forge: ENGAGE-tile

There are so many things impacting on and around procurement. It can be difficult to juggle & keep pace with what’s new and the day-to-day job. Changes in the environment, rising inflation, the continuous effects of the pandemic – we have to navigate it all. But how do we best do this?

This is a key question we asked when putting together the Forge: ENGAGE agenda & set-up. Our community of 6,000+ professionals (in the Procurement Foundry space) contributed to the development of the event that will now take place in Las Vegas in a few weeks’ time (November 2 & 3). We’ve managed to cover all those hot topics (and have space for networking) in the 1.5 days we will be spending together.

But a conference is about more than just the learning – so here are 10 (other) event highlights you can look forward to:

  1. Discovering an agenda bursting with Blue Sky Thinking (Day 1) and new tools to Supercharge your Skills (Day 2)

  2. Interacting with The Hideout Theatre – a fun Improv session hosted by a leading theatre company who will revolutionize how you communicate and collaborate with others

  3. Attending the VIP Day – leadership keynote sessions and private roundtables for those running the procurement organization, buy side only (apply to attend here)

  4. Meeting 250 senior-level procurement professionals collaborating and sharing solutions to pressing issues and new opportunities

  5. Engaging with the ENGAGE conference app – helping you to build your network, get to know your peers and to set meetings with other attendees

  6. Hearing from 50+ industry speakers sharing their know-how, including speakers like Lisa Martin, GSK, Cyril Pourrat, BT, Dr. Elouise Epstein, Kearney, Sopan Shah, IHG and many more

  7. Attending 2 Drinks Receptions – ensuring you mingle with peers in a relaxed and informal atmosphere

  8. Joining 20 Content Huddles offering quick-fire solutions in smaller peer groups, using procurement case studies

  9. Discovering inspiring and innovative solutions from 15+ solution providers in the expo area

  10. Building new business relationships and sharing best practices with other attendees focused on the same priorities.

Plus, if you are new to procurement or have colleagues who are just starting out, you can join up with Procurement Foundry fellows over coffee via our Procurement Pathway, which offers an informal 1-2-1 meet up. Click here or email Tina to get signed up: tnoble@procurementfoundry.com.

Sounds good? We sure hope so. See you in Vegas!
