Event description

Description

If every person & business in South West Wales spent an extra £100 over the course of a year with regional businesses, instead of global ones, there would be an extra £108m circulating and multiplying in our economy.

More money circulating in the regional economy means small businesses will grow; new enterprises will start; jobs will be created; young people will stay; places will thrive; communities will flourish.

In short, the economy will work better for everyone.

How might we change the way major organisations buy goods and services so that all the benefits of that procurement, and the £6bn of public spend, are retained in the region? And how might we make procurement a force for good, ensuring that the “invisible value” and “added value” that comes from regional procurement is recognised and scored as part of the tender process?

And what about our personal spending, and our own businesses and organisations in the private and third sectors? What can we do to keep more of our spending in the region and encourage others to do the same?

We're hosting what we hope could be a game changing event for procurement in South West Wales, bringing the right people together to create a shared sense of purpose around keeping more regional spending... IN THE REGION!

Not just WHY this is important from a community wealth building perspective, but also HOW it can be achieved - within the existing statutory framework and procurement laws.

If you're a procurement professional, a major buyer, or a business in the regional supply chain, register to attend this half day conference exploring "the Art of the Possible" - and please help us spread the word!
