We always win new business on the back of this well organised event, and will be back again next year.”
Lorraine StewartMarketing Manager - Certas Energy
Procurex provided us with a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate how we support central government and the wider public sector. We received some valuable business leads directly from the event and would recommend the event to any public sector supplier as a chance to get direct insight into the biggest challenges facing public sector businesses today. As a sponsor of a GO Awards category we also had a brilliant night celebrating excellence in public procurement and networking in a relaxed environment.

The exhibition was a great success for our company, allowing us to network with a multitude of organisations from both the public and private sectors.
