Procurement and Supply Australasia (PASA) is the leading provider of information and education to procurement and supply professionals throughout Australia and New Zealand.
PASA supports the largest community of engaged procurement stakeholders in the region, through its renowned series of events, publications, awards, plus various community and network building activities.
PASA is a trading name of BTTB Marketing, for many years recognised as the leading producer of conferences and events for the procurement profession in Australia and New Zealand. Whether producing under the BTTB or PASA brands, our events have consistently led the market in terms of both educational and networking opportunities.
Procurement and Supply News & Articles
The publishing section of Procurement and Supply, features in-depth articles, special features and reports, advice and analysis, commentary and thought leadership, the latest news and jobs from the world of procurement and supply.
PASA Connect is a low cost membership network that provides extensive, affordable, learning and networking opportunities for all members of the procurement team, from the CPO/Head of Procurement to its most junior member. Organisations join their procurement team, with the annual subscription determined by the size of the team.
The primary benefit delivered to PASA CONNECT members is the opportunity to participate in Round-table sessions at which members explore solutions to their current challenges, gain exposure to new ideas and practices, benchmark their own capability and most importantly, build valuable relationships with their peers. The roundtables run for between four hours for the bi-monthly CPO Round-table to two hours for the category based groups
Procurement and Supply Events
Procurement and Supply hold a variety of different types of events, some more directly relevant to particular issues or categories of supply, others addressing the bigger picture issues and challenges faced by the profession today.
But what they all have in common is that they are a great place to share knowledge, ideas and experience, to learn from and benchmark yourself and your organisation against your peers, and to make new contacts and build networks.
Webinars are particularly effective in the ANZ market as they enable us to communicate effectively with procurement professionals without geographic constraints. Our webinars cover niche and general interest topics.
PASA Awards – Re-branded “THe Nigels” in 2021
Winning a PASA Award is a prestigious recognition of procurement excellence. Not only are the winners judged against their peers’ efforts in competition, but also against a minimum standard for excellence defined by our esteemed judging panel of procurement experts. Winners must pass a standard of excellence, we believe.
The founder of PASA, Nigel Wardropper, always took a personal hand in the PASA awards process, the presentations and the shortlisting. He cared that procurement as a subject constantly moved forward – that it was innovative, practical and, most of all, achieved real results.
These principles have been enshrined into the PASA Awards process and re-branded “The Nigels” for the future as a memorial to Nigel who sadly died just prior to the October 2020 annual PASA PremierConfex event.
btTB and GBTA are delighted to announce the formation of a partnership to provide the business travel community in Australia and New Zealand a host of new learning, development and networking opportunities.
The partnership commenced with the the btTB Annual Conference in May 2017. The partnership has delivered a series of regional events throughout the year, a quarterly electronic magazine and access to a broad range of news, articles and resources via a new website.
The partnership initiative will be supported by PASA, bringing procurement rigour to the programme and access to its 25,000 strong procurement stakeholder community.
