9th Annual OEM Purchasing Executives Summit

May 15, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Registration Ends Friday May 11, 2018

Meet OEM purchasing executives and members of their staff at the 9th Annual OEM Purchasing Summit. The event is one of the best attended and received SAA events of the year as it provides suppliers access to purchasing executives of the leading six automakers.

John Henke, Ph.D., president and CEO of Planning Perspectives, will present results of the 2018 North American Automotive OEM-Tier 1 Supplier Working Relations Index Study. The comprehensive survey examines the working relations between Tier 1 suppliers and their North American- based OEM customers from the suppliers’ perspective.


Following Dr. Henke’s insightful presentation, attendees will hear from the purchasing executives and be able to ask questions during an extended Q&A period.
