San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) December 21, 2016
SIG, the premier membership organization for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing executives, today announces the launch of a SIGnature Event program and the preliminary calendar of events for 2017.
SIGnature Events, formerly referred to as Symposiums and Regional Roundtables, are one-day conferences for Fortune 500/Global 1000 professionals. These events kick off with an all-delegate breakfast, followed by a live peer-to-peer/grand roundtable, buy-side executive presentations and panel discussions. The SIGnature Events also feature an hour and a half of rotating roundtable sessions that facilitate open discussions on burning issues with smaller groups of delegates.
Over the course of these one-day events, senior buy-side executives from different industries share successes and failures, engage in open dialogues and address challenges faced by sourcing and outsourcing executives. Dates are currently on the calendar throughout 2017 in North America, the UK and Australia, including: New York, London, Seattle, Atlanta, Sydney, Columbus, Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Boston, Dallas, Toronto and Pittsburgh. For specific dates and details go to: http://sig.org/signature-events.
“Our program has grown significantly over the past few years as the sourcing/procurement/outsourcing function has gained more strategic prominence,” says SIG Vice President of Global Events, Stephani McGarry. “Creating a mechanism for professionals in these functions to openly share concerns, hot buttons, lessons learned and best practices provides a powerful learning experience for everyone who attends.”
