Zycus' ZEST Gala in Melbourne a Great Success

This business networking gala emphasized ambiance, service, entertainment and fun.

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA  –   While exhibiting at the Procurement and Supply Australasia Premier ConfeX 2013 at the Crown Conference Centre in Melbourne Australia, Zycus, a world leader in Procurement Technology Solutions, hosted a high-powered networking group of 40 CPOs and other top procurement and supply management executives from across the Australia/New Zealand region. Dubbed ‘ZEST’ the gala evening was held at the Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex on the south bank of Melbourne’s Yarra River and included cocktails, dinner, jazz music and comedy with top-quality service in a scenic setting.

“At Zycus we interact with procurement executives all the time,” remarks Dushyant Joshi – Director APAC of Zycus. “We see how relentlessly busy and challenging their jobs are, how often they must cope with problems and how frequently and far they must travel in their jobs. We wanted to provide a fantastic respite from all that, to enable valuable professional networking in a setting that would be purely relaxing and fun. Our emcee for the evening was a great comedian who really helped to engage all our guests.”

Procurement executives attending Zycus’ ZEST gala certainly appreciated the effort. One guest remarked: “It was a lovely night – the entertainment and ambiance were amazing and the service was great.” Said another: “I liked that the event was not all about work.”

Visitors to the Zycus booth at Confex 2013 received copies of a new research report, Huge Decisions for CPOs, which was based on a recent study documenting how CPOs both globally and within the Australia/New Zealand region are choosing to organize, measure procurement performance, approach governance and compliance issues, manage their procurement talent and technology pipelines, and more. A copy of the report can be found here.
