LUPC & SUPC Conference 2019 - Another Standout Event

On Thursday 16 May, LUPC & SUPC held our joint annual conference at the prestigious County Hall on London’s South Bank. This year was particularly exciting for both consortia as it was the first joint conference since SUPC and LUPC embarked on a strategic partnership as part of our Future Collaboration Project. 

We were delighted to have over 280 delegates attend the day, representing 95 institutions from both memberships. We also welcomed 62 awarded framework suppliers showcasing their exciting products and services as part of our exhibition. 

This year’s programme covered a wide range of topical issues currently facing procurement professionals in the higher education and wider public sector's. For those of you who were unable to attend, you can view our full programme here. 

We have also made the presentation slides from the day’s sessions available to download here.
