Procurement Hero Award - Nominate yourself or a peer

The ABX Awards are back! This year we’re delighted to bring you the Procurement Hero Award. Help us to recognize everyday procurement heroes by nominating yourself or a peer for going above and beyond to make a difference and drive change.

 

We’re looking to recognize someone who could be raising the bar by simplifying the purchasing experience, interacting with stakeholders in a new way, driving sustainability initiatives or proving the value of procurement for the business.

  • What happens next?

    Nominations closed at 6pm on Wednesday 16th September. Your submission will be reviewed by a panel of expert judges from across the procurement industry. We will notify the finalists and winner during the week of the 24th of September and announce to the public during ABX on October 7th.

  • Can I enter more than one peer?

    Yes, you can enter yourself and as many peers as you would like to recognize. You must submit a separate entry each time.

  • What does the winner receive?

    With permission from the winner, we will feature their accomplishments in an interview video that we’ll share at ABX. The winner will also be awarded a trophy to mark the occasion.

  • Can I view your privacy notice?
