The concept is not new, but is is now becoming a reality. ProcureTech Live 2007 will be the first online event about Purchasing with a virtual exhibitor hall, web-based conferences and a lounge not to miss networking.
It will take place the 21st of November, on the web. Zycus (leading spend analysis service provider) is behind, as a platinium sponsor. Not sure, but it looks that this event is launched by Sigaria, an European company created in 2004 to help senior executives from Global 2000 organisations understand emerging topics in Procurement and Human Resources, establish leadership and implement innovative programmes that improve the financial and competitive position of their business.
The user-friendliness of the online application, content and ability to meet/see/speak with new and appropriate business contacts will be key for the success of this event of the 21st century: Yes, it’s not just about cost savings.
