“There aren’t a lot of summits for sourcing professionals where people can think about where the future is going, where cognitive and AI are going to be. This is a place for people to share their best practices and think beyond their own industry.”

Ray Wang
Founder and Principal Analyst, Constellation Research


Coming soon.

“It’s not only about the insights that you get from the speakers and what they’re presenting, but the opportunity to network with professionals that share similar challenges. You can understand how they’ve tackled those challenges and learn from the insights of people who are facing the same difficulties in the business today.”
