The World Source Marketplace for Global Business Services (GBS.World) is pleased to announce that it is a media patron for the seventh edition of the Business Services Sector (BSS) Forum and Outsourcing Stars Gala.
The international conference is set to kick off on the April 19, 2023 in an exclusive venue in Warsaw, Poland.
Organized by Pro Progressio, a Polish-based BSS knowledge sharing body, the forum will host experts and leaders from business process outsourcing (BPO), shared services, customer experience (CX) and IT organizations.
As such, the forum will reveal enriching content, enabling industry players to make more accurate business decisions in a somewhat complex BSS market.
But what differentiates the BSS Forum and Outsourcing Stars Gala to other events in the 2023 outsourcing calendar?
Why is this event significant?
Evolving over seven years, the BSS Forum presents an array of local and global industry topics, challenges and trends to assist buyers, operators, investors and entrepreneurs to effectively navigate the ever-changing BSS market and augment their decision-making processes.
The forum also provides an opportunity for industry players to network and expand their business reach beyond their current parameters.
What can be expected?
Over 350 participants are expected to attend the forum, partaking in 17 lectures led by 50 different BSS thought leaders. Lecture topics will cover both the macro and micro aspects of the BSS sector.
On a ‘bigger picture’ scale, thought leaders will provide their views on the global situation of the BSS market, discussing key industry trends, challenges, pain points and solutions.
Furthermore, a range of granular industry themes will be examined, such as operational issues, work environment, cyber security, professionalization and certification of operating centers.
In amongst these lectures, nine start up presentations will be shared by burgeoning entrepreneurs in the European BSS realm.
It is apt that this year’s theme is ‘’Follow the Leaders’’ – a reflection of Poland’s, as well as Europe’s, flourishing BSS sector driven by individual pioneers over the last 25 years, who have grown into influential, globally renowned leaders.
In celebration of these leaders and the industry as a whole, the Outsourcing Stars Gala (the concluding event of the forum) will recognize the top performing outsourcing organizations in the region.
Moreover, the gala will provide a summary of the year in the outsourcing market, followed by a networking opportunity.
Who will be there?
A diverse collection of thought leaders will be sharing their insights and views, indicating where the industry is going and how to adapt to challenges. These individuals will be representing industry-related organizations, ranging from BSS operators to legal firms to industry advisories.
