When?Where?

The 2021 Purchasing Conference will be held in a hybrid model:

At the event, you will be welcome to join us live at the location of the Grand Hotel Bernardin in Portorož, and we will also offer you the opportunity to follow the event virtually, from the comfort of your office or home.

If live performance will be possible, but the number of the attending individuals will be restricted by the authorities, those who have submitted their application for the event earlier will be afforded a priority in participating on the site. If the then-current measures do not allow us to perform live, the event will be held online only.

In any case, we promise you abundance of topical content, outstanding speakers, actual case studies and terrific networking opportunities.

Regional Procurement Conference – leading regional conference, with the longest tradition

A well-managed and proactive procurement function, which is closely aligned to other business functions and with its suppliers, can have a significant impact on the company’s business performance. And the Regional Procurement Conference has become a central meeting place for 200 purchasing professionals, managers, speakers and service providers from leading Slovenian and regional organizations!

The global pandemic has caused a temporary disruption of supply flows and a fundamental shift towards localization of supply and diversification of suppliers, where ever economically possible. After a year of living with a pandemic, we should congratulate ourselves on successfully adapting to the new reality. But as we emerge from the pandemic, new challenges await, brought upon us by the inevitable economic crisis. The conference programme is addressing the challenges of an uncertain future. The main conference topics are strengthening resilience and robustness in the light of macroeconomic, geostrategic and strategic changes, identifying opportunities for innovation and efficiency in procurement, procurement risk management, procurement & purchasing strategies and leadership in the Era of uncertainty.

The Regional Procurement Conference will once again become a central point of procurement knowledge, information and networking by focusing on key procurement topics and trends, delivered by outstanding professionals and by celebrating professional achievements with the Purchasing Manager of the Year award.

Join us at the leading regional annual event for procurement managers!

What are the opinions of those who attended the Slovenian procurement conference?

The annual Procurement conference, with an interesting program - a combination of theory and case studies, ranks side by side with similar events abroad. In addition to the new ideas, meeting colleagues with similar challenges and experiences may be even more valuable. Booking a spring appointment for the Procurement Conference is also mandatory!

Networking, networking, networking, during and after the Conference. And a lot of new ideas that relieve me of the daily obligations and urgences. Ideas that give me insights into tools, solutions and changes for the future. These are moments that fill me with new energy to achieve goals and to win the challenges I have in purchasing and wider supply processes.
