Commodity EDGE 2012: Conference Details

Commodity EDGE: Sourcing Intelligence for the New Normal

March 19-20, 2012, at the InterContinental Chicago (O’Hare)

* * *

What Is Commodity EDGE?

It’s a business-to-business commodity risk conference, featuring:

  • Key manufacturing category and macroeconomic outlooks
  • Tactical raw material sourcing strategies
  • Legislative overview of federal and state policies that will impact global sourcing organizations
  • Best technologies, tools, and strategies to manage volatile commodity spend

Why Commodity EDGE? Why Now?

Leading manufacturing organizations are actively looking for ways to better manage commodity volatility – not only through a better understanding of underlying market trends, but also through analysis of the specific drivers that most closely correlate to price trends. Participants will also learn ways to manage the P&L, create longer forward-price visibility, reduce risk and ensure ongoing continuity of supply.

In addition, the political landscape has created additional uncertainty around energy costs, global trade, stimulus programs as well as conflict minerals, suggesting the procurement function must transform into a global intelligence center.

*Participants who successfully complete this program will receive (9.75) hours of continuing education. They may be applied toward ISM CPSM re-certification, CPSD re-certification, C.P.M. re-certification, and/or A.P.P. re-accreditation program requirements.
