Bespoke to host 7th Supplier Development Summit

28 April 2017

Bespoke, in proud partnership with the South African Supplier Diversity Council (SASDC) will host the 7th annual Supplier Development Summit 2017 scheduled to take place on 15 & 16 May 2017 in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Twenty first century Supplier Development faces numerous challenges resulting from transformation imperatives, localisation needs, regulatory environments, globalisation dynamics, socio-economic factors, buyer advancements, resource constraints, quality demands, cost pressures and the need for industrialisation in growing markets.

Fundamentally, Supplier Development is an key component of Supplier Relationship Management and is vital for the transformation of any procurement and supply chain management organisation. Within the South African context, this includes developing black owned suppliers, especially SME’s and community based suppliers, to deliver much needed economic transformation and to ensure the participation of historically disadvantaged suppliers in the mainstream economy.

During the one-day seminar you can hear from expert speakers and leading companies, sharing up-to-date knowledge and in-depth practical tips about Supplier and Enterprise Development, including an update on the B-BBEE codes of good practice and the impelling enhancement of the industrialisation agenda for black suppliers.
