Sustainability Leaders ​

Sustainability and positive growth will be at the forefront of the Congress this year. Hear from a diverse range of sustainability leaders about how to move forward in a way that is efficient and lasting ​

What's Your Why?

Use the power of getting together with your peers to explore how procurement can further push the boundaries of our influence and impact, by challenging the status quo

Actionable insight

Hear from leaders and innovators on the next steps they are taking to deliver sustainable growth. Leave the World Procurement Congress knowing that you have the knowledge to help your company move in the right direction and take advantage of insights from industry leaders.


Hear extraordinary stories of business resilience and building strong, lasting initiatives. One of the greatest parts of the World Procurement Congress is the variety of perspectives on show. You can learn something new from every speaker and every person you run into. Then you can take that inspiration into your everyday working life and improve the way you do business

Premium content

Get insights gleaned from the premier practitioners’ global community plus PL’s analysis you cannot access elsewhere. Every year there is an opportunity to gain an edge over your competitor and enhance your own workflow. The diverse range of premium and exclusive content available at the WPC this year will give you the opportunity to learn from the best and build up a bank of valuable resources. 

Global connections

It is a truly global event, encompassing stories, perspectives and ideas from pioneers from all around the world. As you develop or expand your own practice these global connections could provide a vital stepping stone and a way to organically grow your own international network. 


How long since you were able to have that valuable conversation while queuing in front of the barista? At this year’s WPC you will be able to harness the invaluable power of peer-to-peer connections. Over the past year we’ve missed those organic connections.  We’ve missed the seemingly innocuous conversations that lead to breakthroughs and vital connections.

Networking is a huge part of the procurement business. The World Procurement Congress will be one of the best places to network with peers this year
