Adjuno will participate in the 7th edition of ‘Made in Asia Sourcing Symposium’ 2017 conference on 16th March, at the Harbour Grand in Hong Kong. 7th edition’s key theme will focus on “The end of middlemen: is sourcing as we know it dying?”

Today many large corporations restrict the sourcing element and trust their partners who invest in the product and its production. Relationships between the head offices and factories may not need a middle-man any more, and this change may be accelerated by the arrival of digital and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Factories are progressing, logistics is transforming itself, while buying offices remain static.

It will be an informative and interesting day where we can learn and share ideas to tackle the increasing challenges surrounding sourcing processes.

Here are some of the key topics and speakers that will be covered on the day:

  • Fourth Industrial Revolution disrupting sourcing industry– Egidio Zarrella, Clients and Innovation Partner, KPMG China
  • Future of sourcing consumer products–Anne-Laure Descours, Global Director Development and Sourcing Apparel, PUMA SE
  • Digitalisation impact on end-to-end value chain– panel speakers: Veit Geise, VP Sourcing; VF Corporation, Philip Van Remoortere, Business Development, DDS Logistics Limited and Charlie Xu, Vice President – Professional Services, Greater China, Lectra
  • New tools in the box–Tony Nash, Founder and CEO, Complete Intelligence; Stephane Boivin, Co-Founder President & CEO, Pivot88; Fred Lemoine, Vice President, Weave Services Limited and Augustin Ceyrac, Co-Founder and COO, Easyship

This is an ideal forum to meet and network with sourcing professionals and share our knowledge of delivering and supporting sourcing and supply chain solutions.

We look forward to talking with as many delegates as possible, so if you do plan on attending, please say hi to our colleagues with Adjuno badge, we will be pleased to meet you.
