The Global Sourcing Summit is just around the corner. Our last Summit housed nearly 400 senior sourcing, outsourcing and procurement executives from industry-leading brand-name companies. In fact, 48% of our attendees held a VP/C-level title, with 68% at a Director or above. With a 70:30 buy-side ratio and satisfaction rating of 94%, not only does that make this the most prestigious event globally, but it also makes it one of the largest opportunities for senior-level sourcing professionals to share thought leadership and network with executives from peer organizations.
The interactive and conversational nature of the SIG Summits adds a depth of learning unprecedented in the industry. SIG is unique in that it blends practitioners, providers and advisors in a strict "no-selling" environment. SIG Summits are the only events in the industry where sourcing practitioners can attend freely knowing that they will not be solicited. Offering a completely non-commercial environment means no booths, no exhibit halls and no active selling. Conversations are natural and collegial, resulting in real business relationships based on mutual respect.
SIG Global Summits are three-day events that are packed with the latest best practices, cost-cutting strategies, innovative processes, and risk-mitigation approaches. Through executive roundtables, general sessions, workshops, breakout sessions and networking events, you'll hear from industry thought leaders, hear the latest best practices and have the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals facing similar challenges.
