The 4th Annual PASA Premier ConfeX will be the largest event for the procurement profession in the region this year.

Event ThemeThe Yr of Entrepreneurial Procurement_300x250

We know the world of procurement is changing. While the savings imperative will never go away, organisations are increasingly looking to their procurement functions to deliver value in so many other ways, in areas from supplier driven innovation, to managing a multitude of diverse supply side risks and revenue generation.

PASA has announced 2016 as “The Year of Entrepreneurial Procurement” and this will also be the main theme for the Premier ConfeX. The theme focuses on encouraging new thinking and the development of new skills and attributes in professionals working in both the buy and supply sides as they seek to extract greater value for their organisations. In a rapidly changing world where we hear so much about disruption, volatility, complexity and risk, where we are less certain than ever before, where the call for procurement to step up to the plate and deliver real strategic value grows ever louder, the time has never been better for procurement, and their colleagues working for their suppliers, to become more entrepreneurial.
