The Global Revolution series of conferences has become a firm fixture in the public procurement calendar since its inception in 1997. The first in person event post-COVID attracted well over 200 participants, included 38 sessions and hosted over 100 speakers. As always, it brought together an impressive array of public procurement experts and talent, including representatives from most of the major international institutions working in public procurement, purchasing professionals, lawyers and consultants, as well as academics.
The Public Procurement Research Group (PPRG) at the University of Nottingham, under the leadership of APLU Fellow, Prof Annamaria la Chimia, will again be hosting this major conference in 2024. The dates for the 2024 conference is 17 to 18 June and the event will again take place at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham. APLU will also again collaborate with the PPRG on the conference.
The call for papers is now out and can be viewed on the conference website.
