BOSTON and LONDON, April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attention, procurement and supply management innovators: Stake your claim in the future of your profession. Time is running out to add your voice to the Procurious Big Ideas Summit, an unprecedented digital think tank event scheduled for April 21. Make sure your ideas are heard as Procurious connects 50 top executives with its 13,000 worldwide members to solve thorny issues and harness new opportunities—together.
"Procurement professionals are at the center of the Big Ideas Summit, driving and shaping this global brainstorm," said Tania Seary, Founding Chairman of Procurious, the leading free online business community for the procurement and supply management profession. "We are forging a new kind of innovation movement, where everyone has equal power to ignite significant change."
Sponsored by IBM, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM), The Hackett Group, and Coupa, the free Summit will feature several provocative sessions. Leaders from these organizations as well as AstraZeneca, The World Bank, and more will address the megatrends, disruptions, blind spots, risks, and technologies that are already leading to a "procurement revolution".
With so much at stake, the conversation is already beginning, as delegates submit advance questions for the speakers, discuss everything from supplier management to sustainability, and share videos with their own big ideas.
On April 21, the dialogue will be amplified as delegates log onto Procurious for digital and video updates, and engage on other social media channels to become even more involved. They will be checking out the action on Twitter, staying up-to-date with live tweets from the event, and tweeting back @procurious using the hashtag #BigIdeas2016. LinkedIn and Facebook will also be rich sources of event news and discussions.
From April 22 onward, the dialogue will continue as Procurious shares speakers' and influencers' Big Ideas videos, footage, blog posts, and more.
