Sourcing Round Table 2019 – Shanghai
June 18, 2019 | 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Together with our German consulting partner h&z, we are pleased to invite you to the sixth annual Sourcing Roundtable in Shanghai.
E-commerce, the “on-demand” economy, and a host of other disruptive forces are reshaping global supply chains. They are also forcing trading companies and buying offices to ask themselves: how can we remain relevant and profitable in the long run?
This year’s discussions will centre around three pressing challenges faced by those sourcing from China:
- China + 1: China remains the go-to sourcing destination for most, but finding a “+1” has become imperative. Which sourcing markets are emerging as a real alternative?
- Customer-centricity: Increasingly, those who cater to consumers’ demand for speed, customisation, and sustainability thrive. How can middlemen drive and monetise customer centricity?
- Technology: While some emerging technologies help to unlock profitability and optimise the cost-value relationship, others can be seen as “smoke and mirrors”. What type of digital systems and strategies make sense for your business?
