On behalf of the 2017 Planning Committee, I'd like to invite you to participate in SPLC's Summit, May 8-10 in Denver, Colorado. As of today, you may now:
- submit a Presentation Proposal (due Jan. 15th),
- submit a case study for SPLC's Leadership Awards (due Mar. 10th),
- and register with the SUPER Early Bird discount (ends Dec. 31st).
Find detailed information about each of these opportunities below.
We look forward to having you be part of the event!
SPLC’s annual Summit brings together 400+ visionary purchasing and sustainability professionals, suppliers, and NGO experts from diverse sectors and regions in order to share, simplify, and spread the best sustainable purchasing practices across the whole economy.
The 2016 Summit brought together 350 professionals from more than 230 organizations. To get a sense of what you can expect at the 2016 Summit, view last year's multimedia summary.
This year's program will feature many opportunities to share your work and forge valuable professional relationships. We welcome your proposals for interactive workshops, roundtable and panel sessions, lightning talks and more. Learn more about the session formats, content themes, and how to submit a proposal. Submissions are due on January 15th, 2017.
Are you interested in joining conversations in which you can innovate with other sustainable purchasing leaders?
Do you have an innovative project you’ve been wanting to undertake, but you need to find other participants?
Do you see an area desperately in need of innovation, and you want to explore what can be done with other people who see the same need?
Have you developed an innovative practice that could change the world if it were to spread, but you need help figuring out how to spread it?
Register for the Summit on or before December 31st to secure the SUPER early bird registration rate. Be a friend! Tell your peers to plan now to attend too.
Plan now to attend SPLC Connect, a unique matchmaking event that precedes the opening of the Summit. Registration for this is separate from Summit registration.
