Public Procurement Forum in Lisbon

Lisbon, Portugal

We are pleased to invite you to the fifth CMS Public Procurement Forum that will be held at Sana hotel in Lisbon on 23 May 2018.

The event will discuss recent trends and developments in the public procurement market both in Portugal and across Europe. The program will cover innovation in public procurement, e-procurement, and important aspects of the impact of the new directives. Our speakers and panellists will include economists and business representatives of various entities and sectors as well as CMS lawyers from several European jurisdictions.

The conference will be held in English. Please note there is no charge for this event, however we have limited places available, so the "first come, first served" principle will apply.

We look forward to seeing you there.
