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.

This year's event offers a fast-paced conference format featuring many of the thought leaders and thinkers in sustainable procurement for the shipping industry. 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.

Read the full planned conference schedule below, which is subject to change ahead of the event.

There are many advantages to joining the IMPA conference, not least of all to share knowledge, network with colleagues, and learn about the latest trends and industry thinking.
