banner 2019 CPO Round Table


Enabling Business & Revenue Generation

Over the past 10 years, Purchasing has evolved into a function that impacts the total cost of ownership, sustainability and innovation. Today, as purchasing teams are more strategic to the business, new opportunities emerge for them to enhance the total business performance.

In this context, during the Round Table we will explore how Purchasing contributes to generate new business advantages and to nurture revenue making opportunities.

Our focus will be to identify different levers that can be activated to make this happen. We will also look at the conditions for success, including the development of a vibrant community of Buyers who see their roles evolving.

Join us to benchmark your strategy and practices and strengthen your network during 2 days of intensive debates in a secure and friendly environment.

A Meeting for Leaders

A CPO needs to keep up to the changes and lead his team to stay competitive. Time is limited and challenges are paramount.

One of the best ways to anticipate future challenges and answer the current ones is to benchmark across countries and industries. Discussing with peers may offer you an applicable solution that has already been tested.

The EIPM CPO Round Table offers an opportunity to deepen your knowledge of new purchasing language, analyse the global changes across industries and benchmark your company’s strategy against others.


Two days of intensive exchanges, organised around short company cases, interactive workshops and high level debates.


The agenda of the Executive Round Table is created in close collaboration with participants, who bring their burning issues, new concerns and success stories to the table.


The goal of the CPO Round Table is to critically analyse how purchasing management takes shape in different countries and industries, while sharing best practices and managerial experiences.


This well-established forum brings together a limited number of leading executives and guest speakers, creating a network of professionals sharing the same values, the same enthusiastic approach to people and Purchasing.

Why to attend?

  • Benchmark your company’s strategy against others
  • Strengthen your network with peers who are facing similar challenges
  • Discuss sensitive matters in a secure environment
  • Analyse the global changes in the field
  • Sustain a valuable competitive advantage
  • Make a positive contribution to success of your company
