(Tempe, Arizona) Purchasing and supply management will be a hot topic in the October 26th issue of FORTUNE® magazine. FORTUNE® is devoting a special advertising section in the issue to highlight the new, strategic role and expanded impact of the purchasing and supply management function in today's organizations, big and small. The National Association of Purchasing Management (NAPM) in conjunction with FORTUNE Custom Projects will produce this special text and advertising section - The Power of Purchasing and Supply Management.
The section will focus on eight major subject areas: Transportation & Distribution; Electronic Commerce; Supply Chain Management and Integrated Supply; Procurement Cards; Purchasing Function Support; Capital Equipment; World Class Purchasing Organizations; and Maintenance, Repair, and Operations Distribution.
Advertisers receive extra exposure from a distribution of the section in the November issue of NAPM's monthly, award-winning magazine Purchasing Today®, which reaches more than 44,000 qualified purchasing professionals.
FORTUNE® magazine reaches approximately five million executive and management-level readers. For organizations that enable the purchasing and supply management function, as well as for organizations that manage this function, this is the perfect opportunity to get the attention of purchasing and supply executives as well as corporate officers involved in strategic decisions.
