Important Notice:

We have taken the difficult decision to cancel the CIPS UK Conference 2021, which was scheduled to take place 29-30 September 2021.  

We had hoped that this would be our first in-person conference since the start of the pandemic.  Although some people are keen to return to an in-person conference, the feedback we have received is that the timing is not yet right for many people in the procurement community. The experience for our event participants is our main priority and providing value to the procurement profession is the foundation of everything we do, which is why we have therefore decided to cancel this event.

All bookers have been contacted via email regarding their tickets, if you have any further questions, please email

We thank you for your continued support and look forward to returning to in-person events in 2022.
