Urbano Network is an independent business networking community, connecting companies of all sizes and sectors from PLCs to SMEs, in London, the UK and beyond.

The government's new Procurement Bill, which seeks to reform all public-sector purchasing regulations, has started its progress through parliament. The bill is set to regulate the way frameworks operate, deliver a shift to contract awards based on social value and see greater spending with smaller businesses.

For this free event, Mark Herring, Urbano's Connector-In-Chief, will be joined by featured speaker Rebecca Rees, Partner & Head of Public Procurement at Trowers & Hamlins. Rebecca is a national expert in public procurement law and sought-after speaker and lawyer on procurement.

Joining the panel will be other speakers, including Sarah Collins, Technical MD at RIFT R&D who will show how bidding costs can be claimed back when aligned with innovation (a key target area for the government)

Hosted by Urbano Members Trowers & Hamlins LLP, the international law firm with offices throughout the UK, Middle East and Far East, at the event space at their City of London HQ, where participants will also enjoy networking and a continental breakfast.
