The National Procurement Awards 2017


Since launching in 2012, the National Procurement Awards has established itself as the premier event in Ireland for benchmarking excellence in the procurement profession in Ireland.

The National Procurement Awards are one of many established business recognition programmes brought to you by Business River, Ireland’s leading B2B business information and events provider.

Other established events in the Business River portfolio can be seen below.

All submissions will be judged by an independent panel of judges drawn from the highest echelons of industry, government, academia and professional bodies.

This event offers a unique opportunity to benchmark your work against the industry, to get national recognition, and to network with hundreds of industry figures, including current and potential clients and top talent in the procurement space.

But don't just take our word for it...

What the People Say

“It is huge because for us it’s all about putting procurement on the platform that (it) would never have. We get certain recognition internally but you need that recognition externally with your peers. To leverage that - internally particularly - for anyone who works in Irish companies with your board it is massively important.”

Anne Stewart, eir

Best Cross Functional Collaboration winner 2016


“It is probably the biggest event in the procurement calendar of the year. (It is) a fantastic opportunity to come and meet peers and fellow professionals in the industry. So, it is great to be associated with the event.”

Séan O’Dwyer, Director, Irish Institute of Purchasing & Materials Management

Award Patrons


“There is no recognition outside of this. It is great to have an Awards. It is great to see people recognised for the efforts and the collaboration that they make and all their outcomes.”

John Cummings, Office of Government Procurement
