Smart Procurement World sets its eyes on the Western Cape

Smart Procurement World. Smart Procurement World.

Smart Procurement World is the ideal independent business-generating event. It is a sourcing exhibition where businesses can meet sourcing, procurement, purchasing and buying professionals from both government and the private sector.

“The global financial crisis has placed significant pressure on corporates to find new ways of earning adequate returns on shareholder investments and – in the case of the public sector – to find better ways of achieving value for money,” said Kenneth Brown, Chief Procurement Officer for National Treasury, speaking at the industry event Smart Procurement World 2013.

Considering the challenges in the public and private sectors, it becomes apparent that neither is achieving the best return on each Rand spent. In order to create awareness of these challenges and to find state-of-the-art solutions, Smart Procurement World will be holding its first regional conference and exhibition, taking place in Cape Town from 5 to 7 March 2014 at the CTICC.

Smart Procurement World is the ideal independent business-generating event. It is a sourcing exhibition where businesses can meet sourcing, procurement, purchasing and buying professionals from both government and the private sector.

This foundational event is the ultimate procurement and supply chain conference in Africa and an opportunity for professional development and updates in supply chain management. The exhibition will offer you easy access to procurement professionals, ensuring that you, as a business, can learn more about their requirements and meet their needs. For the public and private sector procurement and supply chain professionals in the Western Cape, challenges are slightly different to those of counterparts in other provinces.

Over the two-day conference, businesses can expect event highlights from the annual event in Johannesburg as well as having Smart Procurement World Western Cape bring in content that’s relevant and exciting for the Western Cape. This event will offer solutions, strategy and innovation for businesses in its procurement function. The exhibitions will be the premier event for business-generating and sourcing from top suppliers as well as verified black-owned SME’s.

The conference offers strategy and innovation for all in the procurement and supply chain function. The event’s speakers will address supply chain management reform, supplier relationships and development, organisational efficiency as well as many other relevant topics. A partnership with Western Cape Government and Absa will see the Absa Enterprise Development Expo – where verified and qualified black-owned SMMEs will be showcased by top corporates – allowing business and procurement buyers an opportunity to create valuable business linkages
