Why Exhibit

The Public Sector Solutions Expo is the must attend event for those looking to enter into, or grow their share of, the £223bn* UK public procurement market. Engage with thousands of decision-makers, budget-holders, specifiers and influencers from across the public sector, as they seek to find the tools and technology to deliver 21st century public services and achieve improved operational efficiency.

Six Reasons to Exhibit at the Public Sector Solutions Expo:

Generate new, highly targeted business leads

With 4 targeted zones matching the event’s core themes, along with dedicated theatres and content, exhibitors can showcase their brand and solutions to the most relevant budget holders and influencers from across central government and the public sector.

Create a lasting impression

The Public Sector Solutions Expo is the ideal place to ensure that your brand is viewed positively in the sector, and make a lasting impression on your potential customers. Whether it is on your stand or through a speaking session, you can 'recruit' champions for your brand within your target customer organisations.

Be where your customers are

You need to know the individual people you’re hoping to sell to — the budget holders, the influencers and the decision makers. People in the sector move around a lot so it is important to know a few of each of the above categories, as well as senior people in the department or authority.

Speed to market

Being on a framework can improve your chances of securing business but is no guarantee of success; if you aren’t already part of the discussion, it’s going to be a lot harder to win tenders. With over 4,500 contracts worth over £30bn set to expire in the 2nd half of 2019, can you afford not to be at PSS to meet the people that matter?

Showcase your expertise and pre-engage

It is a myth that councils cannot talk to suppliers about their requirements before launching a formal procurement process; in reality it is good practice, endorsed by the Government, for them to undertake pre-procurement market engagement. PSS is an ideal opportunity for them to meet you and discuss their specific needs.

Stay ahead of sector trends

As a supplier, you need to know the public sector as well as, or better than, the people who work in it in order to be accepted and to be credible; PSS allows you to learn about the sector first-hand, as well as position your brand and business.
