Coupa Software (NASDAQ:COUP), a leader in cloud-based spend management, today announced that its premier spend management conference Inspire ’17 will feature some of the most sought-after speakers from the world’s leading brands including Airbus, IKEA, KPMG, Deloitte, Accenture, Maersk Line and Pearson.  The annual conference will be held on 17th October at the London Hilton on Park Lane where Coupa will announce new product offerings that will continue to set the innovation agenda for the spend management industry.

Each year, Inspire provides a unique platform for Coupa’s customers, top-tier partners and dedicated sponsors to access the latest innovation and rich insights from industry thought-leaders, and to build their personal networks with their peers.  In keeping with tradition, Inspire ‘17 will kick off with an opening keynote by CEO Rob Bernshteyn where he will explain to customers the essence and promise of the C.O.U.P.A. vision.

“Together with our industry peers at Inspire, we will drive, debate and discuss disruptive value-based innovation that translates into real, quantifiable customer success,” Bernshteyn said. “Inspire is the place where our customers are featured examples of how Value as a Service is a reality. We’re looking forward to celebrating their successes.”

New this year to Inspire are three Coupa Sourcing Optimisation breakout sessions: Coupa Sourcing Optimisation new capabilities & deep dive; e-sourcing in practice with Maersk Line; and a panel discussion on optimising sourcing to deliver benefits beyond savings with Maersk Line, SKF and IKEA. As with every Inspire conference, several announcements will be made regarding product, partnerships, customers and awards.

Also attending Inspire in London will be Vice President and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, Duncan Jones, who will be joined by Airbus Head of Strategy & Operational Performance, General Procurement, Hélène Cerbelaud, to discuss the importance of trust in vendor partnerships.
