How to play the game – YPP Big Event 2019

This year our annual conference will be transformed into a Big Event. What does this mean? We do not start early but finish late and instead of a lunch the Big Event will include a joined walking diner, drinks and casino entertainment. During the day there will be inspiring speakers and workshops that will help you to boost your potential and more than enough opportunity to get to know other YoungProfessionals! 

The theme of this year’s edition is ‘Strategic Supplier Relationship Management‘. During the event we will fully focus on how to play the game by addressing strategic supplier relationships and encountering the challenges of initiating, developing and managing them. Experienced guest speakers and interesting recent business cases will help you to get a better understanding of this topic.

As the role of procurement is changing into a more strategic function, organizations are further outsourcing their non-core competencies. Not only does this have a big financial impact, it also makes organizations more reliant on suppliers in many ways. Think for example about innovations, corporate social responsibility, supply security and cost savings. Strategic supplier relationship management tops the agenda of many organizations as it is one of the procurement topics that can make a huge difference.

This year the event will be hosted at Holland Casino Breda. Together with Holland Casino we will do our utmost best to organize an event you don’t want to miss! Beside learning about how to play the game of ‘Strategic Supplier Relationship Management’ we will also play the casino games and expand our network during a walking dinner at the casino. With the new time table we will start in the afternoon (13:15u) and finish the program after dinner (20:00u) with the possibility to stay in the casino for some extra entertainment. It will be an event with a balanced range of educational and fun experiences.
