The winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony on May 17, 2017 at the Intercontinental Hotel in London.
Aquiire was named a finalist for the Procurement Service Provider Award among nine other finalists. Per representatives from Procurement Leaders, this year saw a record number of entries from some of the most influential companies across 36 countries for their 11th annual awards. Andreas Ruehe, VP Global Supply Chain at Johnson & Johnson, commented that he had "Definitely been impressed by the quality of the entries" this year which once again exceeded expectations.

Eric Espinasse, CPO at Danske Bank, commented that the process has been "extremely informative and rewarding" and a chance "to learn from the market place and to learn about the evolution of procurement around the world."
