How to register

You can register for all four events, or just those which interest you. If only able to attend one event the organisers strongly recommended you attend Session One – “An Overview of Procurement” as this covers the basics that all potential bidders should know about.

Due to anticipated demand Durham Council can offer a maximum of two places per organisation.
