The 4th Annual MAPI Supplier Relationship Management Forum is designed specifically for senior SRM managers and directors across manufacturing.The goal of this one-day forum is to bring together purchasing executives to share best practices in a candid, closed door, idea exchange. The agenda will give attendees the opportunity to hear presentations from and network with outside experts and peers alike.
This event will look at the supply chain and how managing risks, assessing and auditing suppliers, rationalization and overall management of the supply chain is key to cost savings, risk reduction, and on time delivery. Looking at best practices, processes and applied technology will give you the knowledge to apply these tools and techniques to your organization.
The forum is not limited to MAPI council members—your colleagues working on SRM are also welcome to participate.
Who should attend?
Purchasing executives who have supplier relationship strategy responsibility, supply chain managers, supplier relationship managers, auditors, buyers, and those responsible for building relationships, sourcing work and managing the vendor portfolio.
What makes MAPI forums different?
Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the “so what”.
Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost all of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers, sharing experiences candidly.
No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep on the topics that matter.
No pitches: Our forums never have more than one sponsor, and there are no sales pitches. None.
Balance of strategy and utility: Our forums deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action.
