The Corporate Procurement Game: Operating Small, Smelling Big (Friday, 9:30 – 10:45 a.m.)
Corporate America spends more than $100 billion on goods and services provided by small suppliers—and big buyers have even more cash burning holes in their pockets, looking for new links in their expanding supply chains. Opportunity abounds, but beware: Navigating that supply chain can be challenging … and costly! Top procurement officers, along with some entrepreneurs who have mastered the game, will be on hand to offer advice and insider strategies to help you win that supplier contract and grow your business.
