Why Attend?

The CPO Exchange is not a typical conference. The distinguishing features of this award winning format are:

Attendance is exclusive

Participation is strictly limited to senior procurement executives from leading companies to facilitate true peer-level networking for our delegation and speakers.

Strategic conference sessions

The intellectual content of the conference program is specifically designed for the seniority of the participants, with a focus on strategy rather than solely education.

Unique learning style sessions include:


Traditional Classroom Sessions
A traditional lecture format.


Scenario Interactive Sessions
The speaker sets the scenario and the Group works together to problem solve.


Roundtable Discussions
A more informal Group discussion lead by an expert focused on a particular topic of interest.


Interactive sessions led by a solution provider. Debate and engage around particular challenges facing procurement professionals.


Case Studies
Learn and question CPOs who have faced and solved similar challenges to you.

An itinerary customised to your current business objectives

Both CPOs and Solution Provider participants customise their agendas by selecting conference sessions, BrainWeaves, networking functions and meetings of the most relevance.

One-on-one business meetings

The business meetings provide an exceptional opportunity for CPO's to assess the solutions and services that are available to help them achieve their business objectives. For a full list of the confirmed solution providers participating please visit our solution provider’s page.
