Supply Chain & Procurement in Resources Australia Conference

Perth, Australia

Australia's mining, oil & gas (resources) sectors continue to respond to declining commodity prices in a high cost environment with companies striving to reduce capital investment and find new, innovative ways to remain competitive.  

The supply chain responds through a shift towards cost containment and a quest to seek new opportunities in innovation and competitiveness.

Supply Chain & Procurement in Resources Australia is the first of its kind in Australia and the ONLY event addressing the supply chain & procurement challenges unique to the resources sector. This 2-day event will showcase 25+ speakers sharing best practice strategies, industry-specific use cases and market-leading strategies shaping the current supply chain & procurement function.
