BME Symposium Purchasing and Logistics 2017

8-10 November
InterContinental, Berlin
8.00 am - 6.00 pm

Join Tradeshift at BME´s 52nd Symposium Purchasing and Logistics

Purchasing and supply chain managers work in a turbulent environment. Material prices, inflation and delivery times are moving upward again. The swings on currency markets are becoming more volatile. Simultaneously, uncertainty about the future of globalization is rising. The situation is further complicated by digital transformation, which is causing disruptive changes in traditional value chains.

New answers must be found to meet these challenges. While presentations in the plenary sessions address the bigger picture, the specialist program focuses on the value contributions from purchasing and SCM and the related strategies for success.

  • How are general global economic conditions changing?
  • How will free trade and European integration develop in the future?
  • What value contribution must come from purchasing, and how can successful transformation be accomplished?
  • What will the digital ecosystem comprising companies, customers and suppliers look like in future?
  • How will the role model of purchasing and SCM change in the age of digitization?
  • How can risks be minimized and material prices as well as supply chains be secured?
