The IMPA London Conference 2019 is all about the Procurement Manager 4.0 and the digital and regulatory disruption of the era. Broken into four thematic sessions, the day will kickstart with the exciting findings of the IMPA 2019 Industry Survey.

Following this, the first session of the conference will be entirely focused on coping with impending regulation such as the IMO2020 sulphur cap and improving efficiency during the recruitment process to make sure you hire the procurement leaders of tomorrow. Centred around digitalising the maritime supply chain, the second session will introduce topics such as driving effective procurement in the digital era and blockchain for marine procurement professionals. The third session will include three topical presentations which have yet to be confirmed, so make sure you watch this space for further information. Finally, the last session will be an exciting panel discussion about trends, opportunities and innovation in the shipping industry; industry leaders who drive digital change will join us to gear the entire discussion.
