As the procurement and supply profession is ever evolving, it is critical for procurement leaders and their teams to stay up to speed with the latest strategies and techniques. The Middle-East and North Africa region offers many opportunities for procurement professionals to demonstrate leadership and re-invent themselves through driving better value, collaboration and innovation.

At the same time, delivering an efficient procurement function is not without challenges in a region of heightened geo-political and economic instability. There is a deep need in the region to reassess and reshape how procurement is done at the very heart of business.

The CIPS Middle East conference 2016 will be a chance to tackle some of these deeply-rooted issues – whilst providing insights, training, lively debates, and experience-sharing on the current procurement challenges such as integration, alignment and risk-management.

After the conference, join our awards ceremony which promises to be the best yet!

The annual Awards ceremony is a fantastic opportunity for you and your team to take to the stage and receive the recognition and rewards for your vision, hard work and collaborative leadership in procurement and supply management over the last 12 months.

The Conference and Awards will take place on Tuesday 26 April 2016 at the 5* resort The Address, Dubai Marina.
