We will have four great days experiencing, enjoying, meeting friends and colleagues and learning from industry experts.
On behalf of the Finnish Association of Purchasing and Logistics, LOGY, I have the privilege to welcome all the Procurement and Supply Chain professionals and great colleagues of the IFPSM network to our beautiful country!
It has been less than a year since the IFPSM Board under the strong leadership of the President of IFPSM, Mr. He Liming, took the decision that the IFPSM World Summit will be held annually in the future.
I am very proud of the commitment of my colleagues in the LOGY office as well as the top volunteer CPO´s of LOGY´s network who have worked so hard to create the best possible World Summit experience for all of you!
The World Summit program offers a high value opportunity to participants. During the first Summit Day 26th September, there will be a unique opportunity to meet Finnish top technology companies during the trip to Tampere Subcontracting Trade Fair. This special exhibition has been running for 30 years and is the leading event in the northern part of Europe.
The World Summit´s conference program has been tailored to offer a specific view on what will be the future of our profession. We will start with the global megatrends and their impact on procurement and the high class panel will discuss and wrap up the picture of the future. There will be specific tracks with highly respected Key Note speakers to highlight the special topic areas in parallel sessions:
- Technology Advancement and Sustainability
- Human Factor and Public Procurement
Friday afternoon will be dedicated to association issues including the important IFPSM Council Meeting.
We will have four great days experiencing, enjoying, meeting friends and colleagues and learning from industry experts. The last 24 hours are reserved to networking and visiting Tallinn, the beautiful capital of our neighbour country Estonia. I am certain that the Friday evening dinner and party on the stunning cruise vessel M/S Tallink Silja will be an experience not to forget.
I look forward to seeing you all in Helsinki!
