Welcome to Buyers Meeting Point

Buyers Meeting Point was founded in 2008 with the goal of helping procurement and purchasing professionals find the information necessary to fulfill their responsibilities. We centralized blogs, white papers, and solution provider listings. As our collection of information grew, we realized that we would need to provide advice about which information was best – and our role as a filter of procurement thought leadership began to take shape.

Over time we added coverage of events and publications. We share our unique perspective through articles and guest posts on our own site and as a guest contributor on many others. We have built up a large, active social media network on LinkedIn and Twitter and our direct site traffic continues to grow steadily month over month.

The most recent additions to our coverage include procurement and supply chain audio and video content. This will include relevant YouTube content, Internet radio segments, and podcasts. We will apply the same approach to multimedia content channels that we have taken with written content collecting, consuming and filtering: continuing to help spend management professionals make the most of their scarce professional development time.

Join us, learn with us, grow with us.
