Join us for Cocktails! 

Procurement in the Age of AI: Extinct or Evolved?

Enjoy cocktails and conversation in good company with Tradeshift and The Shelby Group on November 9th after work.

Enough with the polite procurement panels

At this cocktail hour and dinner for procurement professionals, no topic is too touchy for our panelists. Join us for an authentic discussion about the impact of AI on the future role of procurement. Our panelists represent different levels and functions within procurement, so you can get unique–and sometimes dissenting–perspectives on the topic.

You’ll learn:

  • What procurement practitioners wish execs understood about the challenges of AI
  • What experts say procurement organizations must do now to prepare their people and processes for the “age of AI”
  • Whether preserving procurement really matters–and why
  • How procurement leaders define a procurement leader of the future

Bring your curiosity and your questions, and enjoy cocktails, dinner and conversation on us.
