Delegates prepare for Hotelier Procurement Summit
Tomorrow's purchasing event to attract purchasing professionals from the region
More than 100 purchasing professionals from across the Middle East are gearing up for tomorrow’s Hotelier Middle East: Procurement Summit, which will take place at Ritz-Carlton DIFC.
The event, now in its second year following the success of last year’s inaugural summit, will provide a platform for purchasing managers and suppliers to discuss the most relevant issues in today’s Middle Eastern procurement landscape.
To be debated and discussed during the course of the event are topics that largely revolve around how purchasing processes can become more efficient with greater transparency, collaborative systems, and more autonomy for purchasing managers.
---A LIMITED NUMBER OF SPACES ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR TOMORROW'S EVENT. CONTACT AMANDA.ELISHA@ITP.COM FOR DETAILS---
The Procurement Summit will kick off with an introductory presentation from Wissam El Cheikh Hassan, managing partner at Provident Solutions, on how purchasing can be made more effective, which will be followed by a panel discussion on the same topic.
New for this year is a best practice case study on the challenges of F&B purchasing, delivered by Bhanu Pratap Singh, director of procurement, Atlantis the Palm.
The case study will look at how purchasing managers and chefs can work better together to ensure that neither business priorities nor food quality is compromised.
Following a morning break during which delegates will have the chance to network with peers and sponsors, there will be a panel discussion on business ethics and best practice with contracts and evaluations.
A second networking opportunity will be offered during the lunch break and in the afternoon, stakeholder management and how finance teams and purchasing departments can work better together are two of the topics that will be addressed.
The Hotelier Middle East: Procurement Summit 2014 is sponsored by Associate Sponsor A. Ronai, Official Water Sponsor Horeca/ Aqua Panna & San Pellegrino and exhibitors Pulsar Foodstuff Trading/Gourmet Olive Market, Lavazza/Eurocoffee, Ruud Lighting, Unique Precise and Sun & Shades.
