GoConnect 2022 logo

More than 600 attendees from 46 Higher Education institutions and their supplier partners in South Africa and Namibia attended the 2022 Go Connect Conference and Exhibition.

Typical delegates included procurement executives and buyers, as well as decision makers from Finance, ICT and Facilities Management. These professionals are looking for information, products, and services to optimise their current environments and plan for the future.

Held under the auspices of the Purchasing Consortium Southern Africa, the high-engagement conference, exhibition and associated evening functions enabled suppliers to cost-effectively reach these valuable prospects in one collaborative three-day get-together.

The pre-Covid 2019 event in Cape Town, and the 2022 Go Connect Conference and Exhibition were both oversubscribed.

The 2022 event was specifically designed to deliver value to each of our exhibitors, providing maximum collaboration with the buyers and decision-makers and influencers who attend the event. In addition to the integrated exhibition, the conference offered a compelling programme of keynote addresses, concurrent breakaway sessions and social activities that include our exhibitors.

The event provides an irreplaceable opportunity to build and grow profitable relationships with our buying community, while helping our higher education members to identify and engage with the best suppliers for each of the commodities and services managed by PURCO SA.
