The CPO Focus Summit

The CPO Focus Summit is an end user driven forum that provides the latest insight, case studies and debate on current trends and future challenges that affect Chief Procurement Officers, and Procurement practitioners.

We seek to understand the big issues affecting our sector and to plan how to respond to them through sharing experiences, networking, bench marking with peers, and meeting with best in class solution providers.

This one day gathering of leading practitioners welcomes delegates from around the UK and EU from across all industry sectors to encourage active discussion, peer-to-peer learning and produce tangible key take-aways.
