What can you expect?

The strategic drivers for investing in eProcurement technology and digital transformation have broadened enormously since the pandemic ended, with the event set to address many of these drivers directly.

During Covid, providers got the message that technology often let procurement down and they have been working hard to fix this and align to new needs, including: 

  • Streamlining the user experience & bringing options to users to buy
  • Reducing corporate risk yet increasing corporate compliance
  • Building new functionality to enable ESG decision making
  • Improving inbound supply chain visibility

Since November 2022, there’s also AI and ChatGPT to consider. How are these tools affecting procurement both now and in the future? This will be a key theme of the program.

Who will be there?

The event will see a number of high-profile speakers covering a range of key topics across both days, including:

  • Pierre Mitchell, Head of Research and IP Development at Spend Matters, live from Chicago USA on the global procurement technology landscape for 2024
  • Chris Sawchuk, Lead of Global Procurement Practice at The Hackett Group, live from Florida USA on how CPOs are using eProcurement in 2024 – The Hackett Group study 2024 reveals
  • Jeremy Suter, Director of Advisory at Gartner on utilising technology to closer align procurement with organisational objectives
  • Andy Bee, Group Procurement Manager at Australian Unity on Australian Unity: before and after a procurement digital transformation
  • James Meads, Founder of ProcurementSoftware.site, James Meads Media & Consulting Ltd – UK, live from the UK on where to start when choosing from 415 procurement tech solutions
  • Phillip Ideson, Founder & CEO at The Art of Procurement Podcast, live from Florida USA on procurement’s great SaaS spend “Told You So”
  • Sarah Cotgreave, VP APAC Sales for LavenirAI and Director of Globaltraid, live from Wellington NZ on using conversational AI for procurement skills improvement – live negotiation simulation with a sales avatar
  • Rory Clarke, Lead Spend Analyst & Solution Architect at Pareto Toolbox, live from Auckland NZ on effective multiple project management in procurement
  • Emma Crichton, CEO of AutogenAI APAC on how AI is already revolutionising RFT responses by sales managers right here, right now

PASA’s chief content creator, Jonathan Dutton FCIPS, will also provide a quick checklist of the 15 ways that AI can be effectively applied in a busy procurement office in 2024.

There will also be a number of technology showcases across both days and plenty of time for networking.

How does it work?

The PASA ProcureTECH event has always run, both live and online, through the ‘hosted buyer’ model, whereby bona fide buyers and procurement practitioners can attend this event free of charge.

In order to qualify for the hosted buyer programme, genuine procurement delegates must commit to conducting a minimum of four pre-scheduled meetings on behalf of their organisation for up to 30 minutes with participating technology suppliers. 

This allows delegates to quickly ‘screen’ vendors for suitability with minimum effort or buy-side resources. As one CPO said, “ProcureTECH allows you to do two months window shopping in two days.”

These pre-scheduled meetings will be conducted while the main conference programme is in progress, meaning that hosted buyers must elect to opt out of around two of the eight scheduled speaking sessions on the keynote program.

Sometimes, buyers bring more than one team member to enable them to cover all aspects of the event simultaneously and still attend all plenary sessions. 

Organisations may only claim a maximum of THREE hosted buyer tickets under the model. 

Those wishing to opt-out of the ‘hosted buyer’ facility can pay the retail cost of a delegate ticket to attend the event instead.
