The 15th Asia-Pacific CPO Forum

May 9 at 9:00 AM - May 10 at 4:00 PM AEST Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, 61 Phillip St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia

The Current

Having successfully survived the supply chain disruptions and mitigated unprecedented risks of the last few years, the Procurement profession continues to face one crashing wave of disruption after another – the latest set of currents including inflation, talent shortages, the risk of recession, and onboarding a new Government.

Ride the Wave

Rather than drowning in the details and complexity of these challenges, this year’s CPO Forum is designed to help you Ride the Wave.

Now in its 15th year, the Asia-Pacific CPO Forum is the region’s premier procurement event. Held across two days, this is your chance to hear from the most innovative and compelling speakers and cutting-edge thought leaders alongside your peers

This is your opportunity to work, playnetworkcollaborate, and connect with other leaders in the procurement profession.

In May 2023, the CPO Forum will uncover opportunities, insights, and strategies for you to surf the waves of change and land on the shores of success.

Register now to Ride the wave!
