Today marks the official kickoff of ProcureCon Pharma, hosted by Worldwide Business Research. Over the next two days, procurement leaders from companies such as Shire, BMS, AstraZeneca, Merck, and many others, will gather to listen to listen to guest speakers and participate in workshops and networking sessions centered on addressing sourcing and procurement challenges within the pharmaceutical industry. The conference aims to provide insights and strategies to help pharma procurement professionals manage costs and add value to the procurement and sourcing process.
Today’s theme is Structuring Relationships for Maximum Competitiveness, with a full agenda of presentations and roundtable discussions focused on developing strategic relationships between procurement departments and other key stakeholders to enhance strategic sourcing and procurement’s impact on the overall organization. Among the presenters is Source One’s VP of Professional Services Joe Payne. During his Innovation Spotlight, The Procurement Reality Check, Payne will discuss the evolution of procurement business process outsourcing (BPO) and how it impacts pharmaceutical companies. In addition to the presentation, ProcureCon Pharma attendees are welcome to stop by Booth #5 to meet strategic sourcing experts from Source One and learn more about Source One’s pharma procurement spend management solutions.
