We have received an update from the Drug, Chemical & Associated Technologies Association (DCAT) about their upcoming Program.

DCAT’s Sharp Sourcing program on July 12th is unique because it offers separate morning sessions for buyers and suppliers. In the Suppliers’ Forum, you and your colleagues will gain customer-centric perspectives from BMS, Pfizer, Novartis and PwC on key issues and trends impacting supplier relationship management, including how to best manage an integrated supply chain, optimize strategic partnerships, and best manage working capital requirements (payment terms and inventory management) for mutual benefit.

In the afternoon, you’ll join with buyers for sessions on supply chain optimization/CMO integration, procurement analytics and supply risk management and a panel discussion on right-first time metrics with speakers from J&J, Pfizer, Teva, DSM, Merck and more.

We’ll end the day with what is sure to be a dynamic keynote address by Daymond John, star of ABC’s Shark Tank, who will discuss how to foster innovation with your suppliers for a competitive advantage. The networking reception that follows is a great time to catch up with colleagues and customers.

All this for the very affordable Early Bird Rate of $259 until June 24th.

I hope to see you at DCAT Sharp Sourcing 2016 on Tuesday, July 12th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Margaret Timony, DCAT Executive Director
