The 2016 NLPA Conference is already beginning to make it’s mark on procurement history – and it doesn’t even kick-off until next month!

We received a pretty amazing envelope in the mail recently that we had to share.  The Mayor of the city of Pittsburgh heard about the 2016 NLPA Conference.  He was so impressed that he made an official proclamation: October 24, 2016 will officially be known as the “Make Your Mark on Procurement History” Day in the city of Pittsburgh.

2016 Procurement Conference Proclamation from Pittsburgh's Mayor


How amazing is that!  Our attendees  will not only be learning how to make procurement history throughout their careers, but they will officially be a part of procurement history on October 24th!

There is still time to join your procurement peers for this historic event!

We have a great group of attendees already registered for the event from organizations including:

  • Ansys
  • Bayer Healthcare
  • Bobcat
  • CompSource Mutual Insurance
  • Crane & Co
  • Florida State University
  • Goodwill Industries
  • HSN
  • IEWC Global Solutions
  • Nationwide Children’s Hospital
  • Olympus
  • RaceTrac Petroleum
  • Rolls-Royce
  • Seattle Genetics

  • and many more!

This is one event that you absolutely cannot miss if you’re looking for an opportunity to learn what works – and what doesn’t – from some of the brightest minds in procurement today.  We’re bringing together some of the best procurement practitioners and thought leaders for 2 dynamic days of procurement insights and solutions.  And, we’ve recently added a general session on procurement negotiation to amp up the conference even more!

As a result, the conference is booking up quickly!  We’re down to less than 35 spots remaining and the hotel space is even more limited.  If you’re used to waiting until the last minute to register, you’re going to risk missing out.  A sell-out is expected; if you don’t want to be left out you need to secure your place as soon as possible!
