TORONTO—At PurchasingB2B, we work closely with our partner associations to engage their members, which helps us provide quality industry information and to forge connections with our readers and suppliers. By attending and participating in industry events, we’re able to keep our finger on the pulse of issues affecting Canada’s procurement and supply chain practitioners. It also helps us to provide leadership in the procurement and supply chain management fields by sharing our expertise and supporting industry and association partners.

To that end, we’re pleased to be partnering with several procurement and supply chain management organizations to bring you coverage of a number of upcoming conferences. We will attend and report on: the Supply Chain Management Association of Canada Ontario’s annual conference; Aberdeen Group’s Chief Procurement Officer Summit; the Canadian Public Procurement Council’s Annual Conference; GBTA Canada Calgary; and the National Supply Chain Forum in Calgary and the Cargo Logistics Canada Conference.
