A Rich History
ProcureCon started as a single conference in 2001—a direct materials purchasing event for manufacturing companies. Procurement has changed drastically since then, growing more and more important in companies’ corporate structure. ProcureCon has grown right alongside the industry into a series of events that addresses upcoming trends and challenges across specific category needs.
Our attendees ask, and we listen.
First, they asked for an event that fit their busy schedules. So in 2011, the ProcureCon Indirect event split into Indirect West and Indirect West to give procurement practitioners a choice to attend in the fall or winter. These events are big picture, senior-level, strategy-setting educational and networking events that cut across all industry verticals.
At these events, attendees wanted to dive deeper; they asked for more content specific to the complex categories they manage. So ProcureCon launched category events for Marketing, IT, Travel, Contingent Labor, Direct, Pharma, and more (our list keeps growing each year!), as well as ProcureCon Canada which serves the specific needs of Canadian procurement practitioners.
Our events are built on our community’s feedback – from agenda, to structure, to scheduling. It’s truly a place for procurement practitioners to come together and learn from one another.
