Every year, CDAF (French National Procurement Council) holds the Procurement Conferences, which serve as a forum for procurement professionals to discuss the underlying trends and the latest news in the procurement sector. The Issy-les-Moulineaux Conference Centre has been chosen as the venue for the 2017 event on 15 May. With only one month to go, we have decided to provide a detailed look at the programme.

Procurement Conferences: key figures

Basically, this event features 30 conferences and round-table discussions, 80 expert speakers and 850 participants to offer a greater insight into our environment, share best practices, draw inspiration from one another and brainstorm ways of addressing the challenges of tomorrow.
