Event Details

A savvy category manager need to focus on value rather than only costs.This means that instead of getting the cheapest product / service, you should get the best product / service at the best value.

Effective and intelligent category management help organizations to balance their long-term vision and planning with short-term agility.



Event Agenda


  • Streamlining product analysis across industries and categories.
  • Identifying product demand for improvement among customers.
  • Developing suppliers segmentation as the foundation for category management.
  • Transforming data from suppliers intelligence into actionable insights.
  • Monitoring external market risks at the market and category level.
