Local Government Procurement Annual Conference

Procurement Transforming Communities

Build | Grow | Innovate

The LGP Annual Conference is the leading procurement conference within NSW Local Government. This conference brings together professionals who focus on sourcing as well as managing goods and services for their organisation while focusing on achieving strategic objectives and outcomes.


LGP Annual Conference 2020 - Online

Keeping in mind the health risks from the ongoing pandemic, this year the LGP Annual Conference will be delivered virtually to ensure the safety of our delegates while they attend the conference from a safe environment of their home or office.

The conference will be held over two half-days from 22nd to 23rd October 2020. The conference sessions are thoughtfully designed to be sharp, smart, relevant and interactive. This conference will give our attendees the opportunity to build knowledge, learn from experts, understand new concepts and get ideas on how procurement and engineering can help transform our communities into a new safe and thriving environment. 


Procurement Conference  & Engineering Stream Combined

Since our innovative Annual Conference in 2019, NSW councils have been hit with a magnitude of adversities which we hope are not experienced by our future generations.

Many councils suffered severe drought, followed by the catastrophic bushfires which were finally extinguished by floods. And just as the recovery process began, the COVID-19 pandemic incredibly locked down the world.

These disasters have heavily impacted NSW councils who now find themselves on the long road to recovery. Each of these events has tragically and drastically changed the way we live and work now and in the future.

Local government in NSW now finds itself on the frontline of our social and economic recovery. All levels of government have pointed to procurement and engineering as the critical enablers to lead the recovery process as they play a vital role in human, economic, social and cultural development.

Procurement and engineering professionals are responsible for not only building better communities, they seek to protect and preserve the environment for the current and future generations. Together they can help build, grow and innovate through the recovery.

The LGP Annual Conference 2020 program will deliver concepts and ideas about how procurement and engineering can help transform our communities into a new safe, thriving and sustainable environment.

The engineering stream sessions have been weaved into the procurement agenda on Day 1 and will focus on water-related issues, and how engineers can work towards building self-sufficient communities while making the environment safe and sustainable.

This event will share what is currently being done in the recovery process, and emerging strategies being developed and implemented to support our recovering communities and local economies.
