Marketing Procurement: Understanding Event Budgets
There are a variety of fee structures that an event management or experiential agency may apply when hired for your event, and it's important to understand how the different options make for a difference in price. Regardless of the compensation structure your event agency uses, it's important for you to have transparency and understand exactly how you will be billed for these expenses and how the process aligns with your expectations. Ultimately, the portion of the costs are not entirely out of your control and you should be aware of the steps to ensure cost competitiveness. Megan Connell, a consultant on the Source One Management team, explains how negotiating the agency compensation can have the greatest impact on your events overall budget.

ISM Tech 2017
As supply management professionals, we have the choice to make technology work for us to improve operations or allow our processes to fall behind and see our business suffer. With so many technology offerings in this day in age, it can be difficult to decide what options will benefit your organization and have the greatest ROI. Next week, the Institute for Supply Management is hosting ISM Tech 2017, in Washington, D.C. This event is the perfect opportunity to meet with innovative suppliers and procurement providers that can assist you in taking your business to the next level. Source One is looking forward to talking to attendees about new ways to tackle existing challenges and discovering future growth opportunities.

ISM 2017
Source One is also looking forward to the highly anticipated international conference hosted by the Institute for Supply Management, to be held in Orlando, Florida this May. This event brings together over 2,500 global supply chain and procurement professionals for four days of presentations, networking opportunities, and educational sessions that allow attendees to work with experts in the supply chain and procurement industry. Source One is featured as the exclusive sponsor of ExecIn, a sub-conference at ISM2017 designed specifically for supply management leaders. The audience at ExecIn can look forward to this opportunity to reevaluate their business operations and existing procurement processes with the support of best in class procurement professionals.

The Road to SYNERGY - Baltimore, MD
While the Source One team looks ahead to the annual SYNERGY national conference in the fall, host Corporate United is holding one-day regional meetings on The Road to SYNERGY. The first stop is in June, in Baltimore, Maryland, where local procurement professionals can collaborate with other experts in their industry on a smaller scale in anticipation of the national conference. These meetings offer presentations that discuss leadership in the industry, allow for conversations among attendees on best practices and are great opportunities for personal development. Source One will be represented as a Gold Sponsor for these Road to SYNERGY events, and is excited to attend these focused events in preparation for the national conference.
