@ Doltone House, Sydney
LGP Annual Conference 2019 - A Snap Shot
As an established leading industry event within NSW local government, the Local Government Procurement Annual Conference provides opportunities to learn and gain knowledge from industry experts and peers about a range of procurement topics and challenges within the sector. It also serves as a platform to develop new professional networks while reinforcing existing working relationships. Our primary goal, along with information sharing and networking, is to share with delegates the latest trends in procurement to help build existing procurement capability.
This year the LGP Annual Conference was held on 24-25 October at Doltone House, Sydney. The theme of the conference was 'The Matrix of Supply Chain – Connect the Moving Parts'.
In a first for LGP, and any local government procurement conference, on Day 1 of the conference, concurrent to our main conference session we ran an ‘Engineering Stream’ to help local government engineers who want to be better in the supply chain and procurement aspect of their role. This stream was a huge success being well attended by engineers and related professionals from local government as well as the private sector.
The main conference sessions were a full house, attended by local government professionals from across NSW as well as professionals from the private sector. Delegates gained valuable knowledge on Supply Chain Strategies & Management, Circular Economy, Technology and Artificial Intelligence, Procurement Planning, Market Engagement and Work Culture, empowering them to connect the moving parts and achieve positive and desired outcomes in their role.
Over the two days, delegates enjoyed over 16 hours of presentations, panels, roundtables, structured networking activities and tons of interactivity through networking and discussion groups. Delegates used this opportunity to meet with peers, bounced off ideas and share best practices.
Exhibitors appreciated the platform to showcase their goods and services to a cross-section of professionals from both, the public and private sectors and had engaging discussions with potential clients.
LGP once again congratulates the winners of the LGP Awards for Procurement and Sustainability, LGP Approved Contractor of the Year 2019 and the Best of Show Exhibitor 2019.
A commendable line up of speakers, a keen bunch of delegates, and enthusiastic exhibitors together made the conference energetic, engaging and a grand success!
We have been receiving a lot of congratulatory messages as well as positive feedback about the quality of the conference and exhibition and how much they all benefited from it. This positive feedback is very rewarding for the LGP team and we are keen to raise the bar for all our events in 2020. Stay tuned for the LGP Events Calendar 2020 which will be published shortly.
