Join us on the 20th August 2021 in Melbourne for our action-packed one day Conference.

We are delighted to welcome delegates and our members from the private, not-for-profit and public sectors again, together with trusted suppliers and sponsors.

This, our 15th Annual Conference, is one of the only specialist procurement conferences in Australia.

With a pedigree stretching back over 35 years, Procurement Australasia is a pioneer and innovator in the world of aggregated buying and contracting, giving us a prime mandate to present, discuss, develop and report best practice in the sector.

Procure a Better World

Our Procurement Australasia 2021 Conference Procure a Better World,  will focus on the Procurement future world’s three key drivers:

         1. Strategic Procurement Management – financial value that ethical Procurement creates

         2. Sustainable Procurement – reducing the environmental impacts of purchased products and services throughout their life cycle

         3. Social Procurement  – Best practice on understanding and measuring the impact on the community and business

Our 2021 conference will ensure that we educate the industry and our members on the future purchasing decisions of any social, environmental and/or economic benefits that can be accrued to communities above and beyond the delivery of goods, services or works being purchased for their organisations.



With an audience profile rarely assembled at any one time, Procurement Australasia's Annual Conference is an exclusive networking platform for anyone wanting to build and strengthen their business with organisations that represent an enormous slice of the procurement pie.

Procurement Australia in 2015 celebrated thirty years of the company’s inception. To honour and benchmark this milestone and create a lasting legacy the Procurement Australia Scholarship was created to recognise and reward high achieving individuals by funding a scholarship to study, take a secondment, research or develop a paper that adds value and insights for their sector. 

The Procurement Australia Scholarship will be known as the Paul Everitt Procurement Australia Scholarship, named in memory of Paul Everitt a former staff member of Procurement Australia, and a passionate, driven procurement executive, who tragically lost his life in October 2015. Paul himself believed in training and study and was undertaking a three year procurement study course with CIPS at the time of his death.

Procurement Australia has set aside the sum of $10,000 per year to award as a scholarship. The scholarship can be used for the development of a paper, overseas study or secondment, by an individual, a group or even a team.

Submit your nomination via Conference@paltd.com.au
