Connecting Buyers and Suppliers Across the UK’s Public Sector
Procurex National 2024 delivers a wealth of CPD Certified skills development, networking and collaboration opportunities for public sector buyers and private sector organisations alike.
The interactive product showcase exhibition provides organisations that are actively operating within official frameworks agreements or exploring ways’ to further develop opportunities across the £300bn a year UK public procurement marketplace with a chance to showcase their products and services to leading buyers.
Skills Development Zones
Our Skills Development Zones at Procurex National 2024 will focus on the following themes:
Social Value and Net Zero
The Social Value and Net Zero Zone will host several sessions dedicated to understanding the UK’s public sector procurement sustainability requirements and decarbonisation targets.
Future of Procurement
The public procurement landscape is evolving for both buyers and suppliers. This new landscape will see it take on a more strategic role to help deliver social value, play a key role in achieving net zero targets through sustainability, enhance communities and ultimately deliver better value in public procurement.
Procurement professionals are dealing with multiple challenges, requiring them to develop new commercial and personal skills and to think about their role in a different way: as influencers, networkers, collaborators as well as negotiators and decision makers. This zone will focus on upskilling public sector buyers.
Understanding and engaging the market is key for suppliers looking to sell to the public sector. The Market Engagement Zone will deliver a series of sessions aimed specifically at suppliers, offering support in building your business across the UK’s public sector.
Social Housing Procurement
The Social Housing Procurement Zone at Procurex National will play host to a range of training and skills sessions advising buyers and suppliers on the best procurement processes and frameworks to follow, and how to deliver social value and other benefits whilst keeping to regulations and budgets.
The Procurement Excellence Zone at Procurex National will play host a series of inspiring sessions from past winners and highly commended entries, detailing how they delivered their most successful projects, their main learnings from those projects, and how others can replicate their success.
The GO Awards are the UK’s leading public procurement excellence awards, celebrating the very best procurement achievements from across UK’s public, private and third sector organisations.
Entries open November 2024 and we’re looking to hear from buyers and suppliers operating in the public procurement marketplace from across the UK. Celebrate excellence in public procurement by entering the UK National GO Awards, and join us on the evening of 16 May at the Titanic Hotel Liverpool when we crown our winners.
