Accelerating towards digitally powered procurement


Are you ready for change?

It’s a brave new world out there and it’s not for the faint hearted! Procurement continues to face unprecedented change as it evolves into the future. Digitally powering operations, processes and team know-how, remains the mandate for all businesses to boost value, growth and performance.

As a sourcing professional, how are you advancing digital transformation?


What’s it all about?

FORGE Digital Futures 2022 is the 2nd annual virtual event which in 2021 saw 450 sourcing leaders / change agents from across the globe tune in to discuss and exchange thought leadership on the digital transformation of sourcing. This year, fresh thinking from global minds will explore the business strategy behind digital transformation, assess what’s coming down the road that will have the greatest impact and importantly, address how to balance innovation with reality.

Here is just some of the thought-provoking dialogue we will be having throughout the day:

  • Digital transformation; what’s the business stuff?!
  • How to manage third party risk
  • What tools are emerging to strengthen supply chains?
  • Which enabling and disruptive technologies are making waves?
  • How to bring in vendors who align with your goals on sustainable procurement and ESG
  • What talent are you looking to hire in the next 12 months?
  • How are you framing the digital conversation internally?
  • What makes transformations successful?




Who should attend?

FORGE Digital Futures is designed to help elevate sourcing professionals to digital gamechangers. Whether you are in the early stages of your digital strategy, or at the top of your game, the program offers stimulating and interactive discussions, debates and blue-sky thinking, to help you and your business thrive in the digital economy.
