Click here to register

Join us at HSBC's UK headquarters for a presentation and panel discussion on the complex topic of vendor management. 

It is estimated that almost 60% of all assignment costs are associated with vendors. So how can you manage the process for maximum value and efficiency? Our expert panel will be sharing key insights and answering your questions.

Our panel:
