Matthias Gutzmann, 
Founder of Digital Procurement World

“There is no conference like Digital Procurement World in the industry”

A seasoned procurement professional, with over 10 years at Procurement Leaders, Gutzmann was looking for a procurement conference to showcase a startup he used to work for. Realising he couldn’t quite find one that checked all the boxes, he decided to build his own with Digital Procurement World, which successfully held its first event in 2019. 

“The end of the procurement conference as we know it – a message from Matthias Gutzmann”
