The South African Supplier Diversity Council (SASDC) Conference

26 - 27 Nov
The South African Supplier Diversity Council (SASDC) Conference

he South African Supplier Diversity Council(SASDC) Synergy Conference and Business Opportunity Fair is a high -impact event targeted at creating a networking platform for knowledge sharing and facilitating genuine linkages between Corporates and Black Owned(BO) and Black Women Owned(BWO) businesses.

As we celebrate 25 years of democracy, a critical reflection of what we have collectively achieved in terms of a sustainable and representative economy lays bare the fact that inequality has increased, we still battle to reduce the levels of poverty of our citizens, and unemployment rates have hardly been dented. With transformation policy reviewed to focus on accelerating economic growth and competitiveness by building local capacity while addressing socio-economic imbalances that persist, Procurement Transformation is a critical enabler for delivering on this goal. In line with this, this year’s conference program is centered on the theme: “Procurement Transformation –Fueling Growth, Innovation & Job Creation”.

This year’s event will attract over 500 procurement executives, supplier diversity professionals, black business owners, government officials and other special guests from abroad. The Synergy 2019 Conference will deliver the most up-to-date information on supplier diversity development.

Speakers at the plenary sessions and workshops will share the latest information on successful approaches in localization and strategies for competing in a global context. Personal learning and associated experience will be shared in over 10 workshops and other targeted sessions, while certified Black-Owned business will showcase their offerings at over 50 exhibition stands at the Business Opportunity Fair.
