This is not an overnight change, but one that has been growing and gaining critical mass for more than a decade.

At the Digital Procurement Forum, you will get the chance to hear how leading companies in the Philippines are working on harnessing data and using technologies to support value-creation in procurement and get insights on how to have your organisation benefiting from digital procurement.
