Five reasons the most progressive CPOs attend Ovation

C-level attendees

Disruptive, progressive thought leaders collaborate to address the business world’s most complex and rapidly evolving demands.

Inspiring atmosphere

An invigorating and energising environment behind closed doors to drive innovative thinking and meaningful, honest interaction among peers.

No selling

Ideas and inspiration to unlock future opportunities, but no sales pitch.

Horizon scanning

A one-of-a-kind event that pushes conversation beyond the traditional confines of procurement and inspires change for the future – now.

Unrivalled networking

The luxury of time coupled with social activities and hands-on sessions is the perfect catalyst for building lifelong, valuable business connections.

An agenda different from any other event

We look far beyond the traditions of procurement, scanning`the horizon for the future trends and topics that group-level CPOs must begin to think about now.

Our two-day, action-packed agenda – supported by a collaborative environment and an elite lineup of speakers – explores a variety of topics including digitalisation, artificial intelligence, supplier-enabled innovation, robotics, new business models and entrepreneurial leadership.

Attendees benefit from external perspectives into the challenges that shape the business landscape, society, and, in turn, procurement – today, tomorrow and for decades to come.

Join a community of big thinkers

Ovation is an invite-only event reserved for 50 of world’s most dynamic and disruptive group-level CPOs and a handful of equally inspiring thinkers from outside procurement, uniquely positioned to challenge the procurement function as we know it.

We are proud and privileged to have welcomed some of the most forward thinking and experienced CPOs in the world to Ovation with guests representing a cross-industry group of large, multinational companies.
