PRINCETON, NJ, June 15, 2018 – Chicago has always been on the forefront of innovation and technology on a global scale because of its talent and infrastructure. To top that, Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently selected tech entrepreneur Elon Musk’s Boring Co. to develop high-speed transit tunnels to connect Loop and O’Hare International Airport.
While we have to wait for this high-speed transit, the Zycus Chicago Confluence that’s happening near O’Hare International Airport is just around the corner. Zycus is pleased to be a part of Chicago’s thriving innovation and technology scene and host its Confluence event this June 21 at http://campaign.zycus.com/Chicago-Confluence-2018
Zycus Confluence is an invitation-only event that provides senior procurement and finance professionals with an opportunity to unwind; network and learn with the best minds in the industry. The event is designed keeping in mind specific interests of procurement and finance experts and the agenda packs insightful panel discussions and plenty of networking opportunities with peers, thought leaders and Zycus leadership team.
All work and no play make Procurement practitioners dull and hence we ensure that Zycus Confluences are a right mix of knowledge sharing and fun. Here’s the detailed agenda of the evening to give you a gist of what’s in store for the attendees on June 21 at Fogo de Chao, Rosemont.
(Fogo de Chao is a Brazilian steakhouse that operates across 35 locations in the United States, 10 locations in Brazil, and 2 in Mexico. The steakhouse is known for offering the Brazilian Churrasco experience, a unique dining experience).
5.30 - 6.00 PM: Welcome, Registration and Networking
Taking into account the busy schedules of our attendees and the traffic of Chicago, a welcome drink awaits the attendees to arrive at the venue and register themselves by 6 PM.

An interactive panel discussion on ‘Procurement’s Digitization Dividend: The Pay-Off from Transforming Source-to-Pay’.
