Middle East ProcureTech Summit 2023: Embracing Digital Future of Procurement

Verve Management will kick off the year of digital transformation – the year 2023 – with another premier initiative in the region, The Middle East ProcureTech Summit. The summit devoted to a disruptive procurement sector will be unveiled on February 21–22, 2023, in Dubai, UAE.

The growth of procurement within the region is on an uphill trajectory combined with the adoption of technology and supply chains. According to the latest market report, the Global Procurement Software Market was valued at 4.7 billion USD in 2021.

From finance to procurement to marketing, digital technology empowers teams with better control over operations.
