Announcing the Amazon WBE Wednesday Series

Sessions begin May 11 at 10:30 PM EST

Join us May 11 at 10:30 am EST to hear what four different divisions of Amazon have on their procurement radar!

Amazon has over 300 million active users buying from them – do you ever wonder what Amazon buys?

In this first in a series of six webinars, we will hear from Amazon Corporate Procurement, Amazon Grocery, Amazon Transportation Services and Amazon Global Procurement Operations about their supply chain needs. You may be able to fill one of their gaps!

An opportunity to submit your questions to Amazon is on the registration form.
