Savings, savings, savings – with continuing demands on the procurement function to deliver cost reductions and efficiency savings, both procurement and supply chain leaders must work together to achieve the next round being driven, both internally, and from the regulator.

With huge capital investment in ground-breaking infrastructure projects, the role of the procurement professional becomes ever more important. How can the utility sector identify new opportunities for making savings through digitalisation and other new technologies? What can be learned by sharing experiences on managing mega-projects and how can collaboration contribute to the mix?

In a profession under constant pressure to deliver savings while meeting high expectations on service delivery and responsible procurement, the 2019 Utility Week Procurement & Supply Chain Leaders Forum provides a meeting place for forward-thinking leaders across utilities and regulated industries to get together to share best practice, learn from the experts and network with others facing the same challenges.

The conference has established itself as the main source of knowledge exchange for procurement and supply chain professionals within the electricity, gas, and water sectors and is now expanding to include additional regulated industries facing similar issues such as rail, nuclear and the public sector.

Join us for innovative topics, leading speakers, lively discussions and debates, and collaborative round tables to get to grips with the impact of new regulations, address the new role of technology and innovation, and share knowledge and experience in discussing the procurement and supply chain function of the future.
