The Outsourcing World Summit® (OWS), IAOP’s annual global gathering, is where outsourcing customers, providers, advisors and academics come together. Game-changing ideas are shared. The latest trends and opportunities are identified. And, hundreds of millions of dollars of business deals are initiated and made.

The Summit is keynoted by top business, academic and government leaders, and complemented by over 50 in-depth breakout sessions, case studies and workshops.
