Why Attend


At the SIG Global Executive Summit, attendees learn current sourcing trends and how to overcome challenges. The testimonials below provide an understanding of who Summit attendees are, how they spend their time at the event, and what they get from the sessions.


The best way to learn about SIG is to hear it straight from our members and delegates. Watch this short video and listen to SIG Summit delegates share their thoughts on why SIG is the place to go for sourcing, procurement and outsourcing content, thought leadership, networking and implementable ideas:
