Our Agreements

LUPC & SUPC Conference 2017

We’re pleased to announce that LUPC and SUPC will again be hosting a joint Conference & Exhibition on Wednesday 24th May 2017 in central London.

This year’s venue will be the prestigious County Hall, a landmark building on London’s South Bank with stunning views overlooking the iconic London Eye, Houses of Parliament and River Thames. Recently completely refurbished, the venue in one of the best connected locations in central London and (for those that were a little cramped by our great turnout in 2016!) should offer plenty of space for presentations, exhibition and networking.

For Delegates


Contact Laura Compton for any late bookings to see if we can accommodate you.

Budget-holders from across Procurement, Finance, Estates, IT, Laboratories, Libraries, Professional Services and wider departments would all be welcome to attend for free.

Delegates can expect a content-packed programme covering diverse topics such as the impact of Brexit on procurement, managing commodity price risks, modern slavery and soft skills. Delegates will also have the opportunity to attend a selection of Member-led case studies.  

Attendees can also meet  60 approved suppliers to consortia agreements in our exhibition, network  with other buyers and consortia category managers, and enjoy  a complimentary drink in the newly refurbished County Hall venue.
