PASA 2020 Events Schedule & Sponsorship Opportunities

PASA Events during the Coronavirus Pandemic

With the coronavirus pandemic in full swing there are obviously no physical meetings or events taking place. Hopefully they will resume at some point later this year.

In the meantime, PASA is delivering exceptional virtual meeting and learning opportunities through the PASA Connect network.

PASA Connect provides its members with regular topic, category and role-based round-table discussions. While virtual round-tables have been part of the PASA schedule for the last couple of years, with the remainder physical, all round-tables for the foreseeable future will be conducted virtually.

Building on the five previous successful Aged Care procurement since 2015, this two day conference will address these unique challenges, providing a platform for procurement professionals to learn from each other, and from industry experts, while developing a tangible network with their peers and many of the leading suppliers in the aged and home care sector.

  • Networking with peers and key stakeholders from both buyer and supplier organisations

The conference hosts a significant trade show featuring leading providers in the business travel supply chain, providing buyer delegates with the opportunity to explore potential new product and service offerings and suppliers with the opportunity to identify and engage with potential new customers.

ProcureTECH NZ 2020


ProcureTECH is the only event in the region focussed purely on technology solutions that enable and assist the procurement function. A prime feature of the event is of course the technology showcase, where attendees have the opportunity to view a wide variety of solutions at the same time and in the same place. While delegates will have the option to pay a fee to attend the conference, the vast majority will attend on the Free ‘Hosted Buyer’ basis, whereby they commit to a fixed number of pre-scheduled meetings with participating solutions providers.

If you are a provider of a procurement automation solution then this event is not to be missed. The main reason most delegates attend is for the opportunity to view solutions like yours.
