Officially supported by Scottish Government, Procurex Scotland and the Scottish Government National Procurement Conference 2020 will provide a unique online opportunity for Scotland’s procurement community and industry to engage in order to enhance knowledge and understanding of the current and planned procurement developments, initiatives and legislative changes taking place in this evolving marketplace.
Procurex Scotland Engage provides an unrivalled innovative and interactive online event platform for both the buyer and supplier communities to interact across a range of features designed to meet the challenges of today and the future, in this current climate where live events are restricted.
