For the 9th time already, one of BME International’s biggest annual event will be organized on the 14th and 15th of November 2023. CEE Forum will take place for the first time in Krakow in a spectacular new location: CKF_13 Fabryczna Conference Centre. In fact, already the pre-event program offers a great opportunity to network and meet new potential business partners during a pre-evening dinner combined with a guided tour of the vodka museum, as Mercure Hotel, which is also part of the premises, used to be a polish vodka factory.

BME is holding the CEE Procurement and Supply Forum again this year as a face-to-face event. Exactly like the previous ones, the event combines highly informative lectures and discussions with extensive networking options and individual B2B meetings with suppliers from numerous Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries.

Eastern Europe moves into focus as an alternative sourcing region
“We are aware of the major challenges our buyers face with regard to the currently porous supply chains. In almost all industries, companies are in the process of looking for second-source suppliers or finding alternatives," says Olaf Holzgrefe, Head of International Affairs at BME. "As part of the CEE Forum, BME and its partners, German Chambers of Commerce Abroad (AHK), offer participants the chance to speak on-site with suppliers from several countries in the number one procurement region."

Forum combines lectures with individual B2B meetings
In the conference part of the CEE Procurement and Supply Forum, renowned procurement experts from the region will present and discuss current developments and trends in Eastern Europe. "The BME CEE Procurement & Supply Forum has always combined B2B, information and networking," underlines Lisa Immensack, Senior Project Manager at BME. "We are looking forward to provide tailored support to our buyers with their procurement challenges once again on-site."
