Enhancing Capabilities and Showcasing Innovation
Welcome to LGPE 2017
The Local Government Procurement Expo 2017 (LGPE) is specifically designed to enhance the overall skills and capabilities of those personnel who are either influencing or directly working within the local government procurement sector.
Officially supported by the Local Government Association (LGA) and attended by over 800 key decision makers, this one-day free to attend event for the public sector will provide a unique opportunity for delegates to participate within a range of educational and networking features, aligned to the outputs and objectives of the ongoing National Procurement Strategy (NPS).
Bringing together the largest gathering of local government procurement personnel across a single day, LGPE 2017 will also provide industry with an unrivalled opportunity to showcase their innovative products and services directly to those personnel responsible for an annual marketplace spend of over £55bn.

What others say about LGPE
Tina HollandProgramme Manager – ProcurementLocal Government AssociationLGA has been a proud supporter of the Local Government Procurement Expo and now, as it returns for its third year, we are delighted to confirm that we are the official main partners of the event on 22 November. As an event that brings together the local government community with the UK’s top suppliers, it’s hard to beat. For our members who have still to try LGPE, we encourage you to get involved! Not only is it a fantastic day of personal procurement training, but by attending, you will find out more on the key issues that affect all of us who work within local government in the UK.
