June 4-5, 2024 / Vienna, Austria

Once more, we are inviting 200+ procurement and supply chain leaders for 2 days of professional exchange, cutting-edge keynotes and actionable workshops.



Let’s reimagine Supply Chain Risk Management.

In 2020, we revolutionized the supply chain industry with a scalable, efficient, and user-friendly method for monitoring suppliers, addressing big data challenges and enabling quick response to potential risks. This approach led to advancements in understanding supplier risk profiles, pioneering compliance solutions, and bridging the gap between direct and indirect suppliers. The launch of the Action Platform in 2023 completed the full circle of supply chain risk management within the Prewave universe, enabling integrated risk identification, assessment, and resolution. Today, we are pioneering the next generation of value-based risk management, laying the foundation for quantifiable business interruption risk management. We invite you to join us in shaping a future where supply chain risk management is driven by concrete data and real-world implications, transitioning from abstract concepts to tangible facts.
