Make tech work

DPW Amsterdam 2023 will once more be home to the inspiration, enlightenment, and energy that our ambitious procurement community has grown to know and love.

This year there will be a tight focus on how we turn our digital aspirations for procurement into reality, now.

Our speakers, sponsors, and attendees will be challenged to deliver actionable solutions, not just ideas. This is how we will Make Tech Work!

We have everything we need within the DPW ecosystem to move confidently from ambition to action: the brilliant minds, the deep industry knowledge, the success stories, and, of course, the best new technologies that are ready to help us all move forward in progressive, practical, purposeful ways.

The vision is clear. The ambition is bold.

Together we will unlock the real potential of digital in procurement and...MAKE TECH WORK.
