ProcureCon Is...

Fun!

ProcureCon is not content only or “death by powerpoint“, without room for personalization.

Peer-Led & Unbiased

ProcureCon is not beholden to corporate, journalistic, or sponsored viewpoints.

A Community

ProcureCon is not an old boy’s club or an obligation to attend.

Built For Interaction

ProcureCon is not a sea of nametags or a stale open bar tacked on to the end of a day of presentations.

Forward-Thinking

ProcureCon is not just solving today’s tactical problems or latest hot topic.

Professional Advancement

ProcureCon is not a job fair; but surrounding yourself with fellow motivated practitioners is a good way to grow.
