35 years of the GSA. 2 days of celebration. A sourcing event like never before.

It’s the GSA’s 35th anniversary, and what better way to celebrate than holding the world’s first face to face Festival of Sourcing, in association with BASIS. If you are a professional working in strategic sourcing - as a buyer, servicer provider or advisor, you need to attend this event. Where we’ll be setting the voice and vision for the future of strategic sourcing and the delivery of global technology & business services.

Perfect sourcing is the nirvana that we are working towards as an industry. We’ll be opening the Festival with our keynote speech on the business value that perfect sourcing can deliver to organisations. Today organisations can source any service from anywhere in the world but doing it well is a very fine art that delivers immeasurable benefits. We will be signposting you to everything you need to be thinking about as you progress on your own journey to perfect sourcing.

The Festival of Sourcing will be a wholly immersive experience – we have crafted an agenda which is focused on mixing dynamic thought leadership with interactive breakouts to discuss the how and ways our industry is evolving. Expect a vibrant environment for learning and sharing across the community.

Alongside the content, we’ve planned some unique experiences throughout the day to make sure your networking opportunities are maximised, and we’ll be celebrating into the evening with some fantastic entertainment and lots of local food and drink options.
