BRISBANE: Social Procurement Australasia (SPA) partnered – along with SPA Member Social Traders and the QLD Social Enterprise Council – with the QLD Government’s Department of Housing & Public Works and Department of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Partnerships to deliver this event. The inaugural Make a Connection, Make a Difference Social Procurement Forum & Market Day was held on 4 August 2015 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
This free event was open to government, industry, not-for–profits, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, and social and disability enterprises. It aimed to help everyone come together to foster a shared understanding of social procurement and to discuss how to leverage millions of procurement dollars for social benefit.
