The Big Ideas Summit is a unique online event uniting procurement and supply chain professionals from around the globe to drive innovation and inspire change.
23 February 2017. But a lively conversation has already begun on Procurious! Expect to see most of the action between 09.00 – 17.00 (GMT) as we share video insights, quotes, photos and summary articles direct from London. If you can’t join the action live, not to worry. The thought-provoking discussions and debate will continue long after, and we’ll be sharing video footage of all our Influencers Big Ideas throughout February and March on Procurious.
Although our Top Influencers will be meeting in central London, due to its digital nature Procurious members across the world can get involved from the comfort of their office, armchair or even from the beach! Procurious members can also use our iOS App to follow the action. It’s available in the Apple iTunes store and is free to download.
You’ll need to be a registered member of Procurious – join here for free if you haven’t already. Then simply access the Big Ideas Summit Group to soak-up thoughtful opinions, participate in insightful discussion, connect with our Influencers, access exclusive podcasts and interviews and share your own Big Ideas with the Procurious community.

Procurious boasts a global audience of 19,000+ procurement professionals, from more than 140 countries. If we were to cater to all of these time zones, it would be a tough job – so rather than live-streaming (and keeping you awake at awkward hours), we’ll share video with those who have registered. We will be using Periscope to live stream short videos from the day, but these videos – and all the Big Ideas videos and podcast interviews – will be made available to you in the days that follow.
Here are five compelling reasons to join your fellow Procurians and stake your claim to the wealth of knowledge on offer: 1. An Audience With 50 of the World’s Top Procurement Influencers 2. Get Your Questions Answered By World-Class Experts 3. Make Powerful New Contacts Around The Globe 4. Share Your Own Big Idea and make your voice heard 5. Access Exclusive Content & Learnings
The term ‘influencers’ refers to the our 50 face-to-face delegates who will be sharing their Big Ideas with the room and you – the Procurious community. Our experts span the worlds of procurement, technology, social media, journalism and academia. There will be CPOs from organisations including: Rio Tinto, BP, Crown Commercial Services, YPO, Merck...and many more.
The Big Ideas Summit is made possible by our partners IBM, ISM, The Hackett Group, and GEP
