Amsterdam is prepped and ready to host the 1st edition of Digital Procurement World.

Launched by Matthias Gutzmann, a well-known figure in the global procurement space, Digital Procurement World, or DPW, will be the world’s largest gathering of digital procurement leaders and the only conference that brings together the entire digital procurement ecosystem from enterprise to big tech, startups, VCs/investors, industry analysts, media & press - representing every sector of the industry.

Expected to be world's flagship event of the digital procurement industry, the conference is the culmination of the growing importance for the function to build up its digital capabilities and the need for large corporations to drive more external innovation by collaborating with startups. “When we talk about digital procurement transformation, startups have to be part of the conversation. Procurement’s future role and value proposition will be to engage with startups and source from them," Matthias Gutzmann said.

The DPW Startup Accelerator will provide early stage startups and scaleups the opportunity to pitch their solutions to prominent investors and will give them access to one of the largest buying community in the world.

The two-day, multiple track program will host more than 30 sessions, 40 speakers covering the latest in digital procurement implementation and how it is being and can be used to transform the function including a wide spectrum of topics such as Digital Transformation & Strategy, Big Data & Analytics, Robotics & AI, Blockchain, IoT, Risk, Collaboration & Innovation and Digital Leadership & Talent.

DPW will also host “ProcureHack”, a hackathon where savvy coders, designers, developers and programmers will be given 24 hours to develop innovative solutions that solve critical challenges faced by procurement organisations today.

Supported by an exclusive advisory board that includes forward-thinking CPOs, IT & digital growth heavy hitters, VCs and startup founders representing key stakeholders of the digital procurement community, the conference will see the biggest names in the digital procurement industry.

DPW will be held on 18 & 19 September, 2019 at the stunning and breathtaking Beurs van Berlage, conveniently located in the centre of Amsterdam.
