We are very pleased to invite you to PURCON 2024, the PURCO SA Conference and Exhibition for higher education decision-makers and their supplier partners.

The annual PURCO SA Conference and Exhibition provides an irreplaceable opportunity to learn, engage and grow meaningful relationships within our community, while helping decision-makers engage with the best suppliers for all the products and services they need.

Held under the auspices of Purchasing Consortium Southern Africa, PURCON comprises a high-engagement 3-day collaborative Conference and Supplier Exhibition, with three networking dinners that enable attendees to connect and engage with friends, colleagues and business partners in one collaborative 4-day get-together.

Don’t miss out – our last three events sold out and we expect 2024 to be oversubscribed.

We look forward to seeing you in Cape Town in September and answering any of your questions beforehand. Don't hesitate to contact our Conference Organising Team at
