Utility Week Procurement & Supply Chain Engagement Conference - 19 April 2018

Procurement professionals in utilities face pressure from all sides: to cut costs without compromising on outcomes; to make optimum use of massive advances in technology; and to develop more efficient and effective ways of partnering with their supply chains.

As new challenges emerge, they must adopt new business practices and demonstrate agility to unlock value and enable innovation in the supply chain. Investment in the right people and processes is critical to deliver long-term, innovative solutions that lower costs without compromising on quality.

The 2018 Utility Week Procurement & Supply Chain Engagement Conference will prepare procurement professionals for the regulators’ direction of travel and showcase best practice on how to balance cost and risk to meet long-term challenges.
