Zycus, a world leader in Procurement Technology solutions across the source-to-pay cycle, announced today that it will convene its annual Horizon 2014 procurement leadership conference & networking event at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida on November 9-11.
The third annual Horizon event is expected to draw hundreds of procurement leaders and practitioners from around North America and the globe. Delegates will:
- Enjoy a keynote address by Captain Richard Phillips, who famously survived hijacking of the Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates.
- Benchmark, share, debate, discuss and learn with procurement leaders and practitioners from some of the globe’s best-known companies and brands such as Agropur, Coca-Cola Refreshments, Chicago Bridge & Iron Company, E. & J. Gallo Winery, Graham Holdings, University of Florida, and many more.
- Gain access to top procurement analysts, thought leaders and consultants, including Andrew Bartolini (Ardent Partners), Bill Michels (ISM & ADR North America), Dawn Tiura Evans (SIG), Dr. Robert Handfield (North Carolina State University), Dr. Tobias Schoenherr (Michigan State University) and Tim Cummins (IACCM).
- Relax, network and enjoy, including access to top golf (by invite) and spa facilities plus an evening beach party featuring great food, music and bonfire.
“Our first two Horizon events have received glowing reviews from attendees,” says Zycus CEO and founder Aatish Dedhia, “because we work exceedingly hard to on board talented procurement experts and leaders to address top-of-mind subjects and procurement trends in ways that go far beyond superficial treatments. We bring together some of the most talented and ambitious procurement leaders practicing today. We make it fun, educational, innovative, interactive and entertaining, so people keep coming back to Horizon year after year.”
Enabling the event will be sponsors Nitor, ThomasNet, TableForce, Responsible Procurement Excellence and The Innovation Garage; each will have representatives on hand for additional networking and education, including an interactive session in which procurement leaders will be invited on stage to match wits with negotiation expert and trainer Mike Inman (TableForce).
Zycus is also offering a special customized package MEPLUS1 to encourage conference delegates to bring guests along. Guests can take advantage of a special entertainment program and rate offer, which includes accomodations, invitations to evening activities, inclusive dining and transportation.
