IPPC is targeted at procurement professionals, academic and government researchers, industry, policy makers and regulators. It also welcomes the attendance of students, including graduate students and postdoctoral trainees.

Hosted by the Irish Institute of Purchasing Management in cooperation with Dublin City University, speakers at the conference include Willem A.
