April 17-21: Spend Oversight, Tail Spend Management, Tech as an ESG Enabler


The Buyers Meeting Point Industry Calendar is a procurement community resource – we will list any relevant event as long as it is thought leadership based. The calendar is updated weekly, so check back regularly for new listings and run a quick search if you are looking for something specific!

If you are planning your procurement event schedule beyond this week, I recommend, ‘Autonomous Sourcing: The Game-Changer for Procurement’ from Procurement Leaders and Keelvar on April 25th. 

And now for this week’s recommendations… 


AOP Event: Procurement Strategy in a Post Spend Under Management World (Art of Procurement & Zip) 

April 19th, 11am ET

The time has come for procurement to stop trying to satisfy the ‘100 percent spend under management’ KPI and replace it with something that is not just more meaningful, but it is also more attainable. As part of Art of Procurement’s mission to 10X the impact of procurement, we are collaborating with the team at Zip to explore why 100 percent oversight is a better approach for everyone involved. 


Unlock Cost Savings and Protect Profit Margins with Tail Spend Management (Fairmarkit)

April 19th, 1pm ET

One of the most frustrating things about tail spend has always been a lack of transparency. After all, if procurement doesn’t know what’s in there, how can they make those transactions more cost effective? Join Erin Macfarlane, VP of Product Innovations & Partnerships at Fairmarkit, and David Cassert, Director of Purchasing at Sumitomo Bakelite North America, to learn how you can apply data and speed to improve your tail spend management process.


Tech as an Enabler - Empowering procurement to create value and purpose (Procurement Leaders & Precoro)

April 20th, 10am ET

We all know that it is impossible for procurement to meet expectations without the support of technology. At the same time, some organizations are far better at that than others. Join Jane Karnaukh, Senior Customer Success Manager at Precoro, for this webinar – which will include a case study detailing how the optimization of processes can lead to the procurement function delivering on wider ESG strategic objectives.
