The event will see the chief procurement officers (CPOs) of some of the world’s largest companies, including Dell, Heinz, Honeywell, Microsoft and Deutsche Telekom, share their knowledge of sourcing and will be chaired by Don Klock, the former CPO of Colgate-Palmolive.

The Procurement Leaders Forum is one of the industry’s most prestigious gatherings of senior procurement professionals. Held several times a year in different global locations, events attract many of the most innovative and creative thinkers in procurement and supply chain for an in depth learning and networking session.

The theme of the Chicago conference is Beyond Borders: The expanding role of the CPO, recognizing the growing skill requirements of modern procurement executives. Speakers will focus on topics such as driving efficiency through cross-functional collaboration, increasing visibility in the supply chain and building stronger relationships with suppliers to drive innovation.

Commenting on the event, Alex Martinez, managing director, publishing operations, said “The Procurement Leaders Forums act as an important platform for our community to showcase success stories and best practice. They also provide a completely unique networking experience where individuals share knowledge in a non-competitive environment. I am delighted that our first US-based conference has attracted such a world-class speaker programme and I am looking forward to the event”.
