National GO Awards

There are just two weeks left to book your table at this year’s National GO Awards ceremony, which takes place on 19 March at the Hilton Metropole in Birmingham. With the finalists recently revealed, and many of them having already taken to various online platforms to spread word of their success, time is running out for you to join key procurement figures on one of the most important dates in the UK procurement calendar.

The National GO Awards recognise the achievements of those who make a real difference to the UK economy. Whether you are a supplier to or a buyer for the public sector, the Awards are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate procurement excellence, gain best practice insight and meet fellow procurement professionals at the networking opportunity of the year.

The black tie event kicks off at 6.30pm with a pre-dinner drinks reception and finishes at 11.15pm, when those in attendance are invited to stay on and continue their night of networking. Ten awards will be given out on the night, with many categories having both Winners and Highly Commended, due to the high level of submissions. Entertainment on the night will be supplied by The Front Covers, a five-piece band featuring lead vocals from David Smith, former Commercial Director at the Department for Work and Pensions. See below for the full night’s programme.
