The 2008 European Outsourcing Summit
, part of IAOP’s world-renowned Outsourcing World Summit® Conference Series, met the educational and business development needs of outsourcing professionals in Europe. It was the top venue available for connecting the best in global insights to the very real differences in how companies across Europe approach outsourcing, shared services, and globalization.

The theme: Outsourcing 2008: Universal Truths – Regional Realities emphasized outsourcing’s emergence as a global profession; how exceptional results demand exceptional execution; the critical connection between cultural ties and global sourcing decisions; and how the most successful firms simultaneously think globally but act locally.
