The Procurement Conference - Sustainability in the Supply Chain
The annual IMPA conference has been a regular fixture within the overall IMPA London event since the very start. The programme aims to provide highly relevant presentations, demonstrations, and sessions for all of those working in the global maritime supply chain.

Buying better for the planet’s well-being is now an essential role within purchasing, listen to IMPA SAVE council members, industry guests and special guest presenters. Finishing with a debate covering the mornings discussions.
The close of the conference concludes with a special feature debate around digitalisation and the use of data for smart procurement strategy.
