The Outsourcing Summit 2020

Outsource Accelerator, the world’s leading marketplace and advisory are one of the leading organizations holding an outsourcing summit every year.

Last year, due to the COVID pandemic, the summit was held through an immersive virtual conference without the boring Zoom interviews and with lots of interaction.

The last year’s edition became a success – having a record attendance of 2,000 participants from different states, sectors, and business sizes. It was broadcast to the North American market and featured CEOs from top BPO companies and industry leaders.

With this, companies can surely look forward to this year’s edition of the Outsourcing Summit.

OS2020 recap: The North American edition

OS2020 goals

The Outsourcing Summit 2020 aimed to reintroduce outsourcing to the North American market. This is important in building trust over small businesses and encouraging them to delegate their services offshore.

This edition brought to light the basic outsourcing questions such as:

  • Getting up to 70% savings on costs while improving business processes
  • Having access to a globalized talent and tapping the experience of the Philippine outsourcing market
  • Busting common misconceptions and avoiding disappointments

Aside from this, one of the summit’s goals was to generate 100 outsourcing jobs for 100 clients who decided to sign up for the summit – all within the entire eight hours of the event.

Participants in the summit got the opportunity to try outsourcing in action through free trials on virtual assistant services. Discounts were also given to select entrepreneurs who want to connect to an outsourcing partner during the event.

What’s more? The event helped connect clients to these outsourcing players and eradicate the misconceptions the market has about outsourcing.

What to expect in OS2021?

As the world opens up again, it will be exciting to know a few things that will continue to change the global business landscape. 

For one, the increased demand in global outsourcing continues to trigger the rise of the next outsourcing destinations in the world. A good sign that the world is globalizing quickly!

What to expect in OS2021?

Next, the integration of automation into business processes will surely affect non-core work. Fortunately, we can see its impact on the outsourcing industry with BPOs slowly adapting to their operations.

With these changes and the record-breaking success of the OS2020, expect that this year’s edition will bring a unique and bigger experience, whether it be online or in-person.

See you there!
