Scottish Government Procurement Pavilion
Visit the Scottish Government Procurement Pavilion at Procurex Scotland, where once again Scottish Government and the leading procurement organisations will come together in a dedicated area at the heart of the exhibition.
The Scottish Government Procurement Pavilion will provide the opportunity for buyers and existing and aspiring framework suppliers to engage with those developing policy and creating both national and sectoral framework contracts. This is a fantastic opportunity for buyers and suppliers to understand what frameworks are available to join and buy from.
Meet with representatives from the following organisations:
