Networking Events

SIG provides amazing networking opportunites for sourcing professionals. With Global Summits, Regional Events, Virtual Forums, and more, SIG is the best place to network with your peers. We offer a variety of networking events, including:

GLOBAL SUMMITS

SIG Global Summits are 4-day events that are packed with the latest best practices, cost-cutting strategies, innovative processes and risk-mitigation approaches. Through executive roundtables, general sessions, workshops, breakout sessions and networking, you'll hear from thought leaders, discover the newest trends and network with peers facing similar challenges.

SIGnature EVENTS

SIGnature Events, formerly referred to as Symposiums and Regional Roundtables, are one-day meetings filled with executive networking, industry benchmarking and lessons learned from the most innovative trends and next practices. Through executive buy-side presentations, concurrent breakout sessions, learning centers and live peer-to-peer discussions, delegates will leave with valuable insights, tangible solutions, and a network of new resources.

GBS ROADMAP SERIES

The GBS Roadmap Series includes two regional 1½ day events that are challenging the role of disruptive technologies and other forces in driving global business services (GBS) transformation.

CPO VIRTUAL FORUMS

The SIG CPO Virtual Forum is an open-mic conversation where senior procurement executives gather with other CPOs online to openly discuss their most pressing issues. These facilitated conversations set the stage for the CPO Roundtables held each Fall at the SIG Global Executive Summits.

CPO MEET & EAT

The CPO Meet and Eat program brings together CPO level delegates for a three-hour breakfast or lunch event to collaborate and share best practices. The intimate gathering allows buy-side delegates to have an open dialogue and build relationships with their peers locally.
