Why You Should Attend

3rd Annual Global Procurement and Supply Chain Management for the Oil and Gas Industry

This year’s edition is taking a focused look at how to cope with the sudden drop in oil prices.Because of this drop, professionals need to adapt rapidly to avoid losing money. This conference will provide the opportunity to gain the information needed to adapt supply chain strategies to fit the current market.

Via case study presentations, our expert speaker panel will discuss with attendees how to reduce costs through renegotiating agreements and reducing logistical risks to effectively streamline their supply chain. In order to effectively manage procurement, discussions will cover methods of creating deeper categories for category management and establishing joint ventures to spread risks and develop supply chains.

Procurement professionals still need to encourage value creation through PSCM and, at the moment, they are looking towards establishing supply chains in new locations. This conference provides the opportunity to discuss how supply chain and procurement professionals can overcome cultural differences and the array of regulations to work effectively in new environments.
