Procurement’s Role Stays In Flux

from btnmag.com

More than half of corporate meeting buyers said their company’s procurement department has not recently increased its involvement in meetings management over the past two years, according to an exclusive Meetings Today survey, although several third-party management companies and consultants said that number is increasing.

Of the 137 corporate meeting buyer surveyed, 58 percent said their company’s procurement and finance department had not become more involved in meetings management over the past two years. More than 75 percent said that those departments’ influences had neither increased nor decreased the costs of meetings.

However, meeting management companies and consultancies are seeing the number of procurement-influenced meetings programs on the rise.
