Event - Sustainable Purchasing Summit

The Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council's 2017 Summit (SPLC Summit 2017) will take place on May 8 - 10, at the Sheraton Downtown 1550 Court Place, Denver Colorado.

The Summit will bring together more than 400 leading procurement and sustainability professionals, suppliers, and NGO experts from diverse sectors and regions to share, simplify, and spread the best sustainable purchasing practices across the whole economy.

The summit will include inspiring conversations, workshops, and presentations that will give you innovative and actionable ideas you can apply in your own organization. There will also be a matchmaking event for sustainability-focused buyers & suppliers. SPLC Connect will be held on Monday, May 8th but it is a separate event from the Summit. You are welcome to register for Connect only. However, if you are attending the Summit, you will add Connect to your registration on the Agenda page.
