The platform for academic discussion and practitioner engagement is provided by IPPC, which is one of the largest international public procurement conferences. Over the last 14 years, IPPC events have attracted participants from about 100 countries. The forthcoming Eighth International Public Procurement Conference (IPPC8) will take place in Arusha City in Tanzania from 8th to 10th 2018.
