Why Attend

Public Sector

Four main outcomes have been highlighted by Scottish Government as key for delivering a successful procurement function:

  • Good for business and their employees
  • Good for places and community
  • Good for society
  • Open and connected

Engagement and collaboration across peers and industry plays a vital role in meeting these procurement outcomes.

The Procurex Scotland 2021 hybrid event provides buyers engaged across the Scotland’s prcourement community with an invaluable opportunity to meet with leading suppliers, who are actively delivering a diverse range of innovative products and services that can support both current and future procurement requirements.

Officially supported by the Procurement Advice and Support Service (PASS), Procurex Scotland also provides a unique platform for buyers to enhance their commercial skills through a range of CPD Certified training sessions, all of which are designed to support the development of procurement skills and capabilities.

Free to attend for the public sector, Procurex Scotland will bring together over 1500 key decision makers and provides a unique platform for networking, collaboration, education and innovation.

Private Sector

Scottish Government have placed businesses and their employees at the heart of their outcomes. The Scottish Government’s recently published annual report on national procurement activity highlighted that 58p in every pound spent with suppliers in Scotland went to an SME showcasing that for Scotland’s public sector, SMEs play a vital role in helping to deliver efficient, effective and affordable public services. 

Becoming a government supplier is a great way to make a positive difference to your business. Such companies report an increase in their turnover, higher profits and an expansion of their workforce.

Procurex Scotland is a unique online opportunity for suppliers to engage with Scotland’s buying community in this current climate. 

With over 1500 attendees on the day, including representatives from all major buying organisations across Scotland, this is the one public sector event you cannot afford to miss.  

In addition to delegate access, ensure that your organisation takes full advantage of the event sponsorship and exhibition opportunities available, designed specifically to showcase your products and services directly to this high-value and diverse marketplace
