Sourcing Interest Group Global Sourcing Summit

Loeb & Loeb LLP is pleased to announce that partners Kenneth Adler  and Ieuan Jolly will be speaking at the upcoming Sourcing Interest Group (SIG) 2012 Global Sourcing Summit.

From the conference website:

SIG's Global Summits are packed with the latest best practices, cost-cutting strategies, innovative processes, and risk-mitigation approaches. You'll hear from industry thought leaders and have the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals facing similar challenges.

SIG Summits are unlike any other events out there. SIG's explicit no-selling rules mean providers don't sell to corporate buyers. The result? A relaxed and open setting in which participants let their guard down and exchange practical solutions freely. Presentations are up-close and transparent; interactions are natural and direct. There's no better place to get trusted insight and make powerful connections. Period.
