South West businesses interested in serving clients in industry and government can demonstrate their capabilities through a new initiative aimed at boosting local procurement and jobs.
PROCURE South West will provide a forum for exhibiting the latest equipment, systems and technology, and feature presentations on new projects and careers.
Organising committee member and CEO of the Bunbury Wellington Economic Alliance, Matt Granger said PROCURE South West aimed to boost jobs in the Region by positioning local businesses to capture a bigger share of procurement spending by industry and government.
“We are encouraging businesses to join us in showcasing their innovative products, services and technology. We want procurement people from industry and government to learn more about local business capabilities and have the conversation about buying more goods and services locally,” Mr Granger said.
Principle sponsor for PROCURE South West is South32 Worsley Alumina. Other sponsors registered to date include Premier Coal, the Shire of Dardanup, MCG Architects, Southern Ports, Talison Lithium and the South Western Times. The venue for the event is the automotive training facilities at South Regional TAFE in Bunbury.
