How is this event different from a virtual event?

While virtual events are easy and efficient, assembling in a safe and secure environment creates the necessary space to deepen relationships and expand thinking… creating trust and uncovering new ways of working.

In-person and ad-hoc

The best conversations are unplanned and spontaneous. "Bump into" your next peer mentor and solution innovator.

Interactive Sessions

Lectures be gone! Dive deep during breakouts & roundtables with Procurement and TA peers plus vetted, innovative sponsors.

Special Event

sample roundtable dialogues

Earning a Seat at the “Strategic Table”

Implementing large scale programs such as “Total Talent Management” requires a CW leader to have a seat at the “Strategic Table”. Otherwise your program will be reactive instead of proactive. Learn what Enterprise leaders do now and have done to build credibility & program awareness at the strategic level including influencing the C-suite.

Managing Change in Mature Programs

Responding to change quickly can be a challenge for large enterprise programs with multiple stakeholders. Learn how to use empathy and acknowledge diversity to get stakeholder buy-in and affect change rapidly throughout your program.

Piloting DE&I in your CW program - both domestically and internationally

Hear how one Enterprise piloted a "Proof of concept" program integrating DE&I in the CW Program and gained approval to implement globally. Learn how to navigate through various stakeholder concerns and move your DE&I project forward.

Beyond Supplier Rationalization - Supplier Utilization & Management in a Global Environment

Explore the processes for evaluating supplier utilization in a post-Covid, virtual and global environment. When do you add and/or reduce suppliers? Sometimes, at the same time.

Diversity & Inclusion

Innovation & Technology

The Communications Decency Act or “CDA”, 47 U.S.C. § 230(c)(1), states, “No provider or user of an interactive computer service shall be treated as the publisher or speaker of any information provided by another information content provider.” Because the information supplied to this list is authored by users of VMS Accelerator’s, Inc. site, we cannot be legally regarded as the “publisher or speaker” of that information. The same law applies to sites like Facebook or GlassDoor – users who post information on these sites are responsible for what they write, but the operators of the sites are not. This is also consistent with our website Terms of Use.

The reasons for this law are to protect free speech and to encourage the availability of information on the Internet. See generally Batzel v. Smith, 333 F.3d 1018, 1027-28 (9th Cir. 2003) (recognizing, “Making interactive computer services and their users liable for the speech of third parties would severely restrict the information available on the Internet.”). See also Caraccioli v. Facebook, Inc., 167 F. Supp.3d 1056, 1065 (N.D. Cal. 2016) (purpose of CDA immunity is “to spare interactive computer service providers the ‘grim choice’ of becoming fully responsible for third-party content” by permitting them some ability to edit third-party content without also becoming liable for all defamatory or otherwise unlawful messages that they do not edit or delete.) We cannot possibly monitor the accuracy of the huge volume of information we are receiving for this list. If interactive websites were liable for information that the site did not create, this would restrict free speech, as fewer and fewer sites would be willing to permit users to post anything at all.
