September Sum Up of Events!

It’s events season here at Positive Purchasing and we’ve had a busy September travelling around Europe, attending leading procurement events. The team have been in Spain, Sweden and Italy! Read more below!


We kickstarted our events ‘tour’ with the IFPSM World Summit 2023! Held in the truly stunning, Florentine Renaissance Palaces in Florence, the event featured over thirty outstanding speakers from different industrial realities, talking about the key issues of procurement and supply management.

Our Operations Director, Iain said: “It was fantastic to meet the global procurement community and hear the shared vision we all have to ensure that procurement is the global custodian in helping to mitigate inflation, supply chain shortages and ensuring a sustainable focus in these difficult times.”


Category Management and Sustainability Seminar

Whilst we were attending the IFPSM World Summit, our CEO, Jonathan O’Brien travelled to Stockholm in Sweden to deliver an exclusive seminar at the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise on how Category Management can be used as a crucial tool to promote Sustainable Procurement.

Jonathan said: “It was truly great to hear how much progress large firms and the public sector in Sweden are making towards implementing sustainable procurement practices.”

ProcureCon EU in Barcelona

The team joined forces again after flying over to Barcelona to exhibit at ProcureCon EU! We made lots of new connections and had fun showcasing our range of digital platforms!

ProcureCon EU was really strong this year and well attended by many CPOs who made their way over to our stand to get a first hand demo of the new Capella tool! It was great to hear how the procurement community is meeting the challenges we all face in an ever changing world, head on, and how the digital transformation has begun.
