Connecting Framework Suppliers & Buyers
Be part of the South of England’s Festival of Public Procurement, which takes place on 15 March 2018. Procurex England South, featuring the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Showcase, will give both procurement professionals from across all sectors and industry-leading suppliers a unique opportunity to explore and interact with the key themes of Innovation, Education and Collaboration.
Official CCS framework suppliers will have the rare opportunity to showcase their products and services directly to those procurement professionals who are actively utilising established CCS framework agreements from across the public sector, in order to develop both new and existing business relationships.
Procurex England South will also provide an opportunity for Non Framework Suppliers to expand their reach to a wider public sector audience, whilst networking with some of the key buying organisations.
Free to attend for the public sector, ensure that you and your organisation participate within the South of England’s leading public procurement event of the year.Find out more
