At this year's Real World Sourcing Series Tejari offered participants the chance to win the 2013 Real World Sourcing Scholarship for use towards procurement specific training. To qualify for the scholarship, participants were asked to complete online certifications following each briefing, this reinforcing our efforts to support education in the region.

After a close finish, Ali Sadeddin, Senior Procurement Manager at Emirates Falcon Electrochemical Company (EFFCO) was named 2013 Real World Sourcing Scholarship winner and was presented with the cheque of 10,000AED.
