Local Government Procurement
Annual Conference 2018 - Update
The Local Government Procurement Annual Conference is an established leading industry event within NSW local government. The 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 18-19 October at Doltone House, Pyrmont. The theme of the 2018 Annual Conference was The Power of Procurement.
The conference was well attended by delegates from NSW local government as well as the private sector. Delegates gained knowledge on global procurement trends, sustainability, contract management, supplier relationship management, artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, and use of drones. These were just a few topics from a carefully crafted conference program.
Over the two days the delegates enjoyed extremely informative presentations from renowned speakers which focussed on:
- Understanding how procurement leaders are demonstrating the power of procurement within their organisation.
- How to significantly elevate the importance of procurement within your organisation.
- New initiatives can we consider implementing to help procurement positively impact our organisations?
Exhibitors appreciated the platform to showcase their goods and services to a cross-section of procurement 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.
A commendable line up of speakers, a keen bunch of delegates, and enthusiastic exhibitors from varied industry sectors together made the most of the opportunity into a grand success!
We have been receiving a lot of positive feedback from delegates, speakers and attendees about the quality of the conference and exhibition and how much they all benefited from the conference. This positive feedback is very rewarding for the LGP team and we are keen to raise the bar for all our events in 2019. Stay tuned for the LGP Events Calendar 2019 which will be published shortly.
