28 September 2017. But a lively conversation has already begun on Procurious! Expect to see most of the action between 09.00am – 5.00pm as we share video insights, quotes, photos and summary articles direct from Chicago. 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 our Influencers Big Ideas on Procurious.
Although our Top Influencers will be meeting in Chicago, 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.

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.

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.
Big Ideas Chicago is made possible by our partners IBM and Basware.
