Each year, the CAUCUS Executive Advisory Committee (CEAC) and staff carefully plan the IT Procurement Summit to ensure that attendees receive timely and relevant information to improve their skills. Based on the attendee evaluations from Long Beach’s 23rd annual, we are looking for experienced Director and C-Level speakers with intermediate to advanced material relating to IT procurement.

Particular topics of interest include: blockchain and emerging technologies, tips and tactics for negotiating with large suppliers (i.e. Microsoft, Oracle, Salesforce), managing cloud licensing risks, negotiating international deals, AI, and GDPR.

More general topics regarding licensing, innovation, strategic sourcing, negotiating, vendor management, and risk mitigation are also welcome.

If you are interested in creating and presenting a dynamic and interactive session at the IT Procurement Summit, you may submit a speaking proposal to help motivate your colleagues to reach new heights and inspire newcomers to embrace the profession.
