Virtual CPO Dinner

- Central European Time (CET)


Due to the current situation, this year's CPO Dinner will take place on 29th September 2020 in an extraordinary setting: Together with our partners Celonis and DocuSign we invite you to a virtual CPO Dinner. This new event format replaces the original concept of an on-site event in Vienna.

This after-work event is exclusively aimed at CPOs and Purchasing Managers from one of the German-speaking countries. In a selected circle of customers as well as SAP Ariba and SAP Fieldglass experts, our guests will discover innovative ways to control expenditures, strengthen supplier relationships and create a more stable supply chain. This is a great opportunity for you to virtually meet regional customers and learn first-hand how innovation and automation work as value drivers in procurement. Be inspired by best practices from other companies and take the opportunity to expand your network.
